FBI Says Training Lecture Critical of Islam Ended

Thursday, 15 September 2011 05:57 PM EDT

WASHINGTON (AP) — The FBI says a lecture at the bureau's training academy that was critical of Islam has been discontinued.

The bureau employee who gave the lecture contended, among other things, that the more devout a Muslim is, the more likely he is to be violent.

A federal law enforcement official, speaking on condition of anonymity about the internal FBI training issue, says the lecture was given for just three days last April.

FBI spokesman Christopher Allen says that in the aftermath of the lecture, policy changes have been under way to better ensure that all training is consistent with FBI standards.

The online publication Wired.com first reported on the instruction given to agents.
