JUDICIAL WATCH: Mueller Partnered with Radical Islamist Groups to Purge Anti-Terrorism Training Manuals
As we learn more about the circumstances surrounding the Manhattan terror attack, which killed 8 people and injured 12 others, Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton tweeted a flashback report detailing how Special Counsel Robert Mueller worked with ‘radical Islamist groups,’ to purge anti-terrorism training materials that were found to be ‘offensive to Muslims.’
Judicial Watch reported back in May 2017:
The agency eliminated the valuable anti-terrorism training material and curricula after Mueller met with various Islamist organizations, including those with documented ties too terrorism. Among them were two organizations— Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR)—named by the U.S. government as unindicted co-conspirators in the 2007 Holy Land Foundation terrorist financing case. CAIR is a terrorist front group with extensive links to foreign and domestic Islamists. It was founded in 1994 by three Middle Eastern extremists (Omar Ahmad, Nihad Awad and Rafeeq Jaber) who ran the American propaganda wing of Hamas, known then as the Islamic Association for Palestine.
The records obtained as part of Judicial Watch’s lawsuit show that Mueller, who served 12 years as FBI chief, met with the Islamist organizations on February 8, 2012 to hear their demands. Shortly later the director assured the Muslim groups that he had ordered the removal of presentations and curricula on Islam from FBI offices nationwide.
Mueller’s bureau claimed the training documents included “highly inflammatory,” information on the Muslim Brotherhood, deeming it inappropriate to for the FBI to utilize. According to Judicial Watch, the FBI’s anti-terrorism training materials relied on an article stating Al Qaeda is responsible for the 1993 World Trade Center Bombing.
“The Qur’an is not the teachings of the Prophet, but the revealed word of God; Sweeping generality of ‘Those who fit the terrorist profile best (for the present at least) are young male immigrants of Middle Eastern appearance;’ conflating Islamic Militancy with terrorism,” stated the FBI.
