CAIR Tweet Blasts "Racist" FBI

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) once again has made its animosity toward the FBI loud and clear, reposting a headline on its Twitter feed calling an FBI training program "racist, xenophobic, misdirected, dangerous -- and really, really stupid."
The headline and corresponding link go to a 3,000-word attack on the Bureau for some isolated examples in training programs and for some of its surveillance practices to identify potential terrorists.
It's par for the course for CAIR, especially since the FBI cut off outreach communication with the group due to its roots in a Hamas-support network. A CAIR chapter published a flier last year urging followers to "build a wall of resistance" by refusing to talk to the FBI. Its "know your rights" seminars routinely feature scare tactics about FBI agents breaking the law to set up innocent Muslims. And its spokesmen reflexively cast doubt on FBI terror-related arrests, especially those involving informants.
