Response to a recent report detailing surveillance of Muslim Americans by the United States government has been swift, and negative. Condemnation has piled up from privacy groups and religious organizations alike. Delivering on a long-held promise, journalist Glenn Greenwald today published the names of five prominent Muslim Americans who were under governmental surveillance for years. The group included professors, activists, and even a candidate for political office. The Electronic Frontier Foundation and a collection of dozens of religious organizations each criticized the revelations, saying they recalled previous decades that saw governmental overreach into the private lives of activists.
