FBI Trainer Says Forget Irrelevant al-Qaida, Target Islam

The FBI has publicly declared that its counter-terrorism training seminars linking mainstream Muslims to terrorists was a one time only affair that began and ended in April 2011. But two months later, the Bureau employee who delivered those controversial briefings gave a similar lecture to a gathering of dozens of law enforcement officials at an FBI-sponsored public-private partnership in New York City.

And during that June presentation, the FBI’s William Gawthrop told his audience that the fight against al-Qaida is a waste, compared to the threat presented by the ideology of Islam itself.

At the operational level, you have groups such as Hamas, Hezbollah, al-Qaida. Like teeth in a shark, it is irrelevant if you take one group out, Gawthrop said during his lecture to the New York Metro Infragard at the World Financial Center in downtown Manhattan — via redwolf.newsvine.com
