Date query not running correctly

Oracle, SQL:
When running this query it is returning all rows,  the column "Initial_scan_date" is a date field.  It is not filtering at all to any dates.  Dates in the column are example:  07/01/2006, 12/21/2006 09:05:26 in both formats.  Any idea's???

select to_date(to_char(INITIAL_SCAN_DATE,'MM/DD/YYYY'), 'MM/DD/YYYY')"Inital_date"
from SEC_ADMIN_JUSTIFICATION
where REC_SOURCE = 'UTS' or REC_SOURCE = 'WIN SERVE'
and to_date(to_char(INITIAL_SCAN_DATE,'MM/DD/YYYY'), 'MM/DD/YYYY') BETWEEN to_date('01/01/2007', 'MM/DD/YYYY')AND sysdate

maybe this works better:

select TRUNC(INITIAL_SCAN_DATE) "Inital_date"
from SEC_ADMIN_JUSTIFICATION
where REC_SOURCE = 'UTS' or REC_SOURCE = 'WIN SERVE'
and TRUNC(INITIAL_SCAN_DATE) >= to_date('01/01/2007', 'MM/DD/YYYY')
AND TRUNC(INITIAL_SCAN_DATE) <= sysdate

I see now, you have an OR without brackets...

select to_date(to_char(INITIAL_SCAN_DATE,'MM/DD/YYYY'), 'MM/DD/YYYY')"Inital_date"
from SEC_ADMIN_JUSTIFICATION
where ( REC_SOURCE = 'UTS' or REC_SOURCE = 'WIN SERVE' )
and to_date(to_char(INITIAL_SCAN_DATE,'MM/DD/YYYY'), 'MM/DD/YYYY') BETWEEN to_date('01/01/2007', 'MM/DD/YYYY')AND sysdate

alternatively:

select to_date(to_char(INITIAL_SCAN_DATE,'MM/DD/YYYY'), 'MM/DD/YYYY')"Inital_date"
from SEC_ADMIN_JUSTIFICATION
where REC_SOURCE IN ( 'UTS'  ,  'WIN SERVE' )
and to_date(to_char(INITIAL_SCAN_DATE,'MM/DD/YYYY'), 'MM/DD/YYYY') BETWEEN to_date('01/01/2007', 'MM/DD/YYYY')AND sysdate
