Under the leadership of Caliph Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the group has cut a swath of death and devastation through northern Iraq, killing Christians and other religious minorities, forcing thousands more into hiding and assaulting key U. allies in the Kurdish region of northern Iraq." On October 19, 2011, Farhana Khera, president and executive director of the organization Muslim Advocates, sent Brennan a letter charging that the FBI was a bigoted agency which kept "antiquated and offensive documents about Muslims and Islam" on its intranet, and that some of the Bureau's new recruits were taught "that Islam is a religion that 'transforms a country's culture into 7th-century Arabian ways.'" Within two weeks, Brennan capitulated to Khera's demand that the FBI eliminate its "offensive" curriculum/training materials; i.e., he called for a purge of materials that made reference to "jihad" and "radical Islam." In a written response to Khera, Brennan said: "I am aware of the recent unfortunate incidents that have highlighted examples of substandard and offensive training that some United States Government elements have either sponsored or delivered.Any and all such training runs completely counter to our values, [and] our commitment to strong partnerships with communities across the country..." Brennan added that the Obama administration had already initiated a review of all FBI and Department of Homeland Security training materials on the subject of "countering violent extremism." He also assured Khera that the administration would do everything in its power to improve "cultural competency training across the United States Government," and to emphasize "cultural awareness."Soon thereafter, on February 22, 2012, Steven Emerson of the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) reported: "It was just revealed two days ago that FBI Director Mueller secretly met on February 8 at FBI headquarters with a coalition of groups including various Islamist and militant Arabic groups who in the past have defended Hamas and Hizballah and have also issued blatantly anti-Semitic statements.In January 2009, Obama appointed Brennan as deputy national security adviser for counterterrorism—a post that, unlike CIA director, did not require Senate confirmation.
Moreover, numerous FBI agents have confirmed that from now on, FBI headquarters has banned all FBI offices from inviting any counter-terrorist specialists who are considered 'anti-Islam' by Muslim Brotherhood front groups.Their offensive picked up speed in the early months of 2014, snowballing out of control after their capture of Mosul, Iraq’s second-largest city, in June.At the end of June ISIS changed their name to Islamic State (IS) and announced the formation of an Islamic caliphate in the Syrian and Iraqi territory they controlled."The February 8 FBI meeting was the culmination of a series of unpublicized directives issued in the last three months by top FBI officials to all its field offices to immediately recall and withdraw any presentation or curricula on Islam throughout the entire FBI.In fact, according to informed sources and undisclosed documents, the FBI directive was instigated by radical Muslim groups in the US who had repeatedly met with top officials of the Obama Administration to complain, among other things, that the mere usage of the term of 'radical Islam' in FBI curricula was 'offensive' and 'racist.' And thus, directives went out by Attorney General Eric Holder and FBI Director Mueller to censor all such material.
