Muslim leaders should respect need for FBI visits
Tampa may have had its own ground zero along Howard Avenue had concerned Muslims not informed law enforcement that someone they knew might pose a danger to our community because of his extremist views.
The FBI conducted a sting that resulted in the conviction of a Muslim American who said he wanted to blow up a South Tampa nightspot and then drive to the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and detonate a suicide bomb.
So it seems counterproductive for the Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) to warn Muslims not to talk to the FBI without a lawyer being present. It is one thing to advise Muslims there may be occasions when a lawyer's presence is advisable. But a blanket call for an attorney is excessive.
