article imageFBI agents being taught that all Muslims are violent

By KJ Mullins     Sep 15, 2011 in World
It appears with the United States's FBI is teaching agents that Muslims as a whole are violent. A training manual states the Koran is a book that has its followers use violence to convert the world to Islam.
As recently as March 2011 the F.B.I. was teaching field agents to consider mainstream Muslims in the United States as violent and that all Muslim charities were covers for funding combat against the West.
Whistle-blowers within the agency leaked the current educational materials to the media. The FBI has stated that the program is no longer being taught and was rudimentary. The training manuals were written by Robert Spencer, a known anti-Muslim.
The program taught that the Koran is a book that has its followers use violence to convert the world to Islam. Because of the belief that all who follow the Koran are potential terrorists, each Muslim in the United States can be lumped into a suspect. Using a power point system of 62 slides the participants were instructed on ways to have successful interviews with those from the Middle East. The information provided is said to be very one sided and not a true representation of actual Muslim life according to Muslim advocates who have viewed the material.
“In order for FBI training to be effective it has to present useful, factual and unbiased information. This material fails on all three criteria,” said Mike German, a former FBI agent who now works for the ACLU. “Factually flawed and biased law enforcement training programs only expand the risk that innocent Muslim and Arab Americans will be unfairly targeted for investigation and prosecution, and stigmatized in their communities.”
Farhana Khera, the executive director of Muslim Advocates compared the training with teaching about the African-American experience using material prepared by the Ku Klux Klan.
This training and mindset is exactly what Muslim extremists have been teaching their followers. That the West was against them and will do whatever it takes to eliminate their religion. With FBI agents going into Islamic mosques and community centers undercover how far off are the extremists?
ASAP News Network reports:
“A disclaimer accompanied the presentation stating that the views expressed are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of the U.S. government,” FBI spokesman Christopher Allen tells Danger Room.
“The training materials in question were delivered as Stage Two training to counterterrorism-designated agents,” Allen adds. “This training was largely derived from a variety of open source publications and includes the opinion of the analyst that developed the lesson block.”
It's not just the FBI that is targeting mainstream Muslims. The CIA has helped the police in New York City to go undercover in Muslim areas reports Blurring the lines of domestic spying the partnership between the two law enforcement groups are part of a human mapping program. It doesn't matter if there is evidence of wrongdoing when it comes to observing the day to day life of those being tracked. So far the program has cost tax payers over $1.6 billion.
"The New York Police Department is doing everything it can to make sure there's not another 9/11 here and that more innocent New Yorkers are not killed by terrorists," NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said. "And we have nothing to apologize for in that regard."
The FBI says that protecting the U.S. against terrorism demanded a new framework for how the agency carries out its mission. One way of this is to work at uncovering information before an event takes place post September 11, 2001.
In 2005 the FBI created the National Security Branch. The NSB combines missions, capabilities, and resources of all of the national security components of the Bureau—counterterrorism, counterintelligence, intelligence, and weapons of mass destruction.
Pre-September 11, 2001 the agency was much more closed than it is today with other law enforcement agencies. Today they are working hand and hand at every level for national intelligence and security.
Director Robert S. Mueller, III said on Tuesday, "Since 9/11, the FBI has evolved to respond to the complex and far-ranging threats we face today. The FBI collects, exploits, and disseminates more intelligence to a greater and more useful extent than ever before. This focus on intelligence has helped prioritize our top threats and increased our understanding of our vulnerability to those threats. As the FBI has undergone this transformation, it has remained vigilant in upholding the Constitution, the rule of law, and protecting privacy rights and civil liberties."
