The FBI has promised a "comprehensive review of all training and reference
materials," but Ackerman,
<http://www.wired.com/dangerroom/2011/09/fbi-islam-domination/all/1> in an
article published today, reveals that the work of well-known Islamophobes
permeates the FBI's training culture and the internal reference resources
available to FBI agents.
Ackerman reports that the mandatory online orientation material for the
FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Forces (JTTFs), included the following
description of Sunni Muslims:
Sunni Muslims have been prolific in spawning numerous and varied
fundamentalist extremist terrorist organizations. Sunni core doctrine and
end state have remained the same and they continue to strive for Sunni
Islamic domination of the world to prove a key Quranic assertion that no
system of government or religion on earth can match the Quran's purity and
effectiveness for paving the road to God.
Pipes famously observed that "all immigrants bring exotic customs and
attitudes, but Muslim customs are more troublesome than most." He also plays
a key role in the Islamophobia echo chamber by repeating the falsehood that
Obama is a former Muslim who "practiced Islam."
The combination of Islamophobic presentation and the FBI's apparent
endorsement of noted anti-Muslim "experts" like Spencer and Pipes raises
serious questions about the FBI's counterterrorism training and the Bureau's
understanding of Muslim Americans.
