The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is well known to have ties with terror organizations and has been accused by the Justice Department of actually supporting terrorism, but according to a report by World News Daily, the group is still wielding influence over counter-terrorism training material in the military.
The Pentagon has reportedly caved to CAIR’s request that a formal review is conducted of a private contractor’s counter-terrorism training taught to military personnel.
The job of reviewing the material has been assigned by the Pentagon to a Muslim military chaplain who attended a radical Islamic school funded by the Saudis which was raided by federal agents after 9/11, reports the WND.
Independent contractor Patrick Dunleavy teaches the counter-terrorism program, “The Dynamics of International Terrorism,” to a U.S. Air Force Special Operations group. Dunleavy is a former deputy inspector general for the New York State Department of Corrections and has been accused by CAIR of being “Islamophobic” and holding “personal prejudice against Islam and Muslims.”
Dunleavy has served as a consultant for the FBI, testified before the House Committee on Homeland Security about the threat of radical Islam in the U.S. prison system, and is the author of a book on terrorism, titled, “The Fertile Soil of Jihad: Terrorism’s Prison Connection.”
Dunleavy said none of his students have ever complained about his counter-terrorism program, and Air Force officials have reviewed his material and said they’ve found nothing offensive in it. However, CAIR persists in opposing “anti-Islamic content” in training material used by the military.
CAIR’s efforts “to remove any material from law enforcement or military training that outlines the process of Islamic radicalization is fraught with danger,” Dunleavy warned.
The FBI has indicated they regard CAIR as a front for Hamas in the United States, and the United Arab Emirates has actually classified CAIR as a terrorist organization itself, according to WND.
