NYPD monitored Muslim students all over Northeast

The New York Police Department monitored Muslim college students far more broadly than previously known, at schools far beyond the city limits, including the Ivy League colleges of Yale and the University of Pennsylvania, The Associated Press has learned.

In 2006 a University at Buffalo student named Adeela Khan ended up in a report by the NYPD’s Cyber Intelligence Unit because she had forwarded an email announcing an Islamic conference in Toronto at which the notorious extremist Tariq Ramadan was a featured speaker.
