Energy spent propagandizing FBI better spent elsewhere

The element of political-correctness that gives its practitioners power is that which shames, intimidates, and threatens into silence those who know better.

For example, there is an effort (by groups like CAIR) to cause any critical examination of Islam to be perceived as Islamophobia. Like all lies, this can only result in harm, whether that harm is spiritual (faith in a false god) or physical (allowing murderous thugs to maim and kill "disbelievers" -- Christians and Jews).

This flavor of political-correctness is apparently infecting one of those bodies given the grave duty of protecting American lives -- the FBI. Consider the following quote from an article at WND.com:

"Even as the FBI takes new heat over the 9-11 report's revelation that it overlooked ties between a Muslim cleric and two of the al-Qaida hijackers, it is putting agents and new recruits through a Muslim sensitivity program that includes inviting Muslim clerics and leaders to preach about the allegedly peaceful attributes of Islam."

While all Americans deserve respect, and most Muslims are not terrorists, our FBI should spend their energy and intellect uncovering and restraining those who would harm us.

And instead of preaching to the FBI about the "peaceful attributes of Islam," perhaps it would be better working to reform Islam from within.
