FBI halts training lecture critical of Muslims

FBI halts training lecture critical of Muslims:

The FBI has dropped a training lecture that had come under criticism for its portrayal of Muslims, according to USA Today. The lecture, which was presented at the FBI's training ground to counterterrorism-designated agents, included the statements that devout Muslims were more likely to be violent, that Muslims’ destructive tendencies could not be reversed, that Muslim law justified any war against non-believers and that “a moderating process [could not] happen if the Koran continued to be regarded as the unalterable word of Allah.” FBI spokesman Christopher Allen said the training was derived from a variety of open-source publications that included opinions of analysts, but Robert McFadden of the Navy Criminal Investigative Service contended that the lecture was “no way to stop actual terrorists.”
