“The Department of Homeland Security issued but recalled a 2007 intelligence analysis about the Nation of Islam after deciding the document dealing with the black Muslim group broke rules on intelligence activity in the United States, officials said Wednesday.

Internal documents revealed that intelligence chiefs found analysts had ‘unintentionally and inadvertently’ violated rules governing the collection, retention and distribution of information concerning ‘U.S. persons and organizations.’ The error took place during the Bush administration, and steps have been taken to ensure it does not happen again, a DHS spokesperson said.”
