Sheriff says Culpeper counterterrorism training will go on
by Donnie Johnston
Despite the urging of local and national Islamic leaders, Culpeper County Sheriff Scott Jenkins said Friday he has no plans to cancel a controversial three-day counterterrorism training session next week.
Jenkins met Friday with Corey Saylor of the D.C.-based Council on American–Islamic relations and Dr. Nabeel Babar, director of the Islamic Center of Culpeper, both of whom asked the sheriff to cancel the training sessions scheduled for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at Germanna Community College's Daniel Technology Center. The sessions will be led by former FBI agent John Guandolo, whom the CAIR called a "notorious anti-Muslim conspiracy theorist" in a release earlier this week.
Both Saylor and Jenkins described their meeting as positive, but Saylor said he was not pleased that the seminar will apparently go on as planned.
