It’s not just that government collects so much data on Americans that bothers me.

It’s what the government does and doesn’t do with the data that makes it worse.

Take, for example, the feisty interchange between Rep. Louis Gohmert, R-Texas, and FBI Director Robert Mueller last week.

Gohmert was grilling Mueller over the FBI’s abject failure at preventing the April 15 Boston Marathon bombing by neglecting to investigate their mosque, founded by Abdurahman Alamoudi, who was convicted of supporting terrorism. He also pointed out the FBI had a tip from Russia that one of the Tsarnaev brothers had been radicalized in a visit to Chechnya prior to the attack…

Mueller accused Gohmert of not having his facts straight, for which he should be cited for contempt of Congress. It is Mueller who didn’t have his facts straight – even admitting he didn’t know about who founded the mosque…

I don’t know what’s scarier – the fact that government collects information from every American surreptitiously or that it uses all the wrong criteria in figuring out who really represents a threat to the safety and security of our country and citizenry.
