I guess there's various kinds of "moral values". Reuters via Yahoo! News:

The American Civil Liberties Union on Thursday accused the FBI and local police of spying on political and faith-based groups and formally asked the government for information about such FBI surveillance.

It pointed to some documented examples of task forces' involvement in the investigation of environmental activists and anti-war protesters.
