|On October 19, 2011, Farhana Khera of Muslim Advocates wrote a letter
to John Brennan, who was then the Assistant to the President on
National Security for Homeland Security and Counter Terrorism.
letter was signed not just by Khera, but by the leaders of virtually all
the significant Islamic groups in the United States: 57 Muslim, Arab,
and South Asian organizations, many with ties to Hamas and the Muslim
Brotherhood, including the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR),
the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the Muslim American
Society (MAS), the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), Islamic
Relief USA; and the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC).
The letter denounced what it characterized as U.S. government
agencies’ “use of biased, false and highly offensive training materials
about Muslims and Islam.” Khera complained that my books could be found
in “the FBI’s library at the FBI training academy in Quantico,
Virginia”; that a reading list accompanying a powerpoint presentation by
the FBI’s Law Enforcement Communications Unit recommended my book The Truth About Muhammad;
and that in July 2010 I “presented a two-hour seminar on ‘the belief
system of Islamic jihadists’ to the Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) in
Tidewater, Virginia,” and “presented a similar lecture to the U.S.
Attorney’s Anti-Terrorism Advisory Council, which is co-hosted by the
FBI’s Norfolk Field Office.”

Islamic terrorism have led to the agency dropping the ball on Florida
nightclub shooter Omar Mateen? Mateen, who called 911 and pledged his allegiance to ISIS Saturday
night, killed 50 and wounded dozens of others at a gay nightclub in
Orlando was interviewed by the FBI for possible links to terrorism
