Somehow, the FBI and the Boston police department, with the help of numerous other Massachusetts and federal law enforcement agencies, were able to kill or capture the suspects in the marathon bombings without the assistance of Ray Kelly.
Call it a cri de coeur, a collective cry of the heart, from voices rarely heard -- the city's Muslim community, pushing back for the first time against the NYPD's secret spying on them for the past decade.
Newly obtained NYPD documents, prepared in 2003 and 2004, provide an insight into how the Intelligence Division operated in the aftermath after 9/11 as it sought to protect the city against another terrorist attack.
Kelly says some have "short memories as to what happened here in 2001." This is the ultimate diss. When the fight is between the guy who wants to do more to avoid a terror attack and -- it doesn't matter. The guy who wants to stop terrorism always wins.
Now that the AP investigation of the NYPD's widespread spying on the city's Muslims has apparently run its course, what's been the result? Much of the city's establishment have derided the AP series as "smearing" the NYPD.
