The FBI says some training material is "not consistent with the highest professional standards and the FBI's core values" !!

After a month long investigation, The FBI is removing specific categorized items.

Advocacy groups have been involved in the determinations.

Published February 21, 2012 --

The FBI has removed hundreds of counterterrorism training documents after a months-long review found inaccuracies and other problems in their description of Muslims.

The review was triggered after a September blog in Wired magazine revealed training documents that reportedly called the Prophet Muhammad a "cult leader," claimed "devout" Muslims have been generally violent for hundreds of years and made other controversial statements.
not consistent with the highest professional standards and the FBI's core values

Who gets to establish the "standards" ?

and who gets paid ?

Where were the "Standards" last year ??

Last year was not an election year...

This year is an election year...

Doing this now distracts away from the Fast and Furious debacle...

Personally speaking I don't see anything wrong with having a lot of information. Just because they have it, doesn't mean they act on it. Some of the police departments in my area have information on White Supremacist / Sovereign Citizen ranging from fanatical down to normal.

Just because they have some of the fanatical material doesn't mean the people they are dealing with are fanatics. If the information is out there, then its possible there are people who have those viewpoints. Personally speaking I think it forces some of these agencies to actually research to find the "norm" while weeding out the "moronic".

Best to have as much info as possible and not need it, than to have an encounter with the one person who subscribes to the "moronic" and not understand whats going on.
