This chapter explores the situation that has developed since September 11. The author demonstrates that these changes broadened the scope of unsupervised investigations and, in particular, to permitted potentially intrusive monitoring of religious activities. At a time when many thought religious believers and some religious organizations might pose threats to national security and public order, the Bureau’s post-9/11 practices raised questions about (1) the best ways to secure intelligence about such threats; and (2) the limits to state interference in religious practice where national security is involved.
