"... training must emphasize that religious expression, protest activity and the espousing of ideological beliefs "are constitutionally protected activities that must not be equated with terrorism..."

Even to the exclusion of those who perpetrate such crimes and say that they did it for Allah, and explain with copious quotes from the Qur'an and ahadiths.  This is nuts, but no one can accuse the Obama administration of not genuflecting to Islamic ideals and demands.

The big question is; who exactly did the excising and what were the exact criteria?  What was false, and by who's perspective?  Without answers we are left to ponder and assume.  Not a good place to be when trying to understand the threat against us.

At FBI, 876 pages of agent training material related to Muslims found offensive or inaccurate

WASHINGTON (AP) — An FBI review of agent training material critical of Islam uncovered 876 offensive or inaccurate pages that had been used in 392 presentations, including a PowerPoint slide that said the bureau can sometimes bend or suspend the law.

The bureau has not released the material, but Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois described a few pages of it in a letter asking FBI Director Robert Mueller to institute five changes so that inappropriate FBI training on Islam doesn't happen again. On Friday, the FBI confirmed the number of inaccurate or offensive pages and presentations.

The bureau also said the documents that are either offensive or inaccurate have been taken out of training presentations.

Every trainer was identified and interviewed by an FBI inspection team and the team determined that the problems were performance-related — poor judgment or inadequate training — rather than intentional misconduct, said FBI spokesman Michael Kortan.

As a result, instructors were counseled and in some cases removed from training positions.

Durbin said he's disturbed that the FBI doesn't plan to produce a written report on the six-month review. He said he wants the agents who received the bad training to be retained.

It began last September after the online publication reported that the FBI had discontinued a lecture in which the instructor told agent trainees in Virginia that the more devout a Muslim is, the more likely he is to be violent. The analyst subsequently gave a similar lecture at an FBI-sponsored public-private partnership in New York City.

Yes that is true.  Who told the FBI that is not true and got them to drop that particular training course and instructor,  CAIR?
