CAIRO – Amid an outcry over using Islamophobic materials in training its officers, the FBI has purged hundreds of documents offensive to Muslims and their faith.What, no "blasphemy" category?
"It's a bit hard to avoid the conclusion there isn’t a problem of culture in the [FBI] training division," Maya Berry, executive director of the Arab-American Institute, told Danger Room magazine.
"It’s one that appears to have some built-in biases when it comes to the Arab-American and Muslim-American communities."
An internal investigation has purged hundreds of Islamophbic materials used by the FBI in training its officers.
The announcement came during a meeting on Wednesday with several Arab and Muslim advocacy groups.
FBI spokesman Christopher Allen said some of the documents were removed because they were "offensive" while others were "inaccurate" and "overbroad".
He, however, insisted that the purged documents represent "less than 1 percent" of the 160,000 reviewed in the inquiry.
The bureau cited four criteria for purging the documents; "factual errors", "poor taste", employment of "stereotypes" about Arabs or Muslims or presenting information that "lacked precision".
The FBI said it plans to publish a "touchstone document" which sets criteria for not using anti-Islam materials again in training officers...
Best of luck fending off the jihad with pro-Islam materials, silly federales.
