GOP Rep: Watch Muslims Closely

Item: GOP lawmaker calls for 'increased surveillance' of Muslims after attack/Julian Pecquet, The Hill.

More here: Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) called for “increased surveillance” of Muslims on Friday, saying the Boston Marathon bombing suspects' links to Chechnya represented a “new front” in the war on terror. “Police have to be in the community, they have to build up as many sources as they can, and they have to realize that the threat is coming from the Muslim community and increase surveillance there,” the chairman of the House subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence told National Review. “We can’t be bound by political correctness. I think we need more police and more surveillance in the communities where the threat is coming from.”

Question: Shouldn't the politicizing of this terrorist tragedy wait until after the last suspect is caught -- and questioned?
