Can FBI be held liable for targeting Irvine Muslims for surveillance?
by Maura Dolan
Craig Monteilh told the imam that he wanted to embrace his French and Syrian heritage and convert to Islam.
Monteilh adopted an Islamic name, donned Muslim robes and a skull cap, and attended prayers vigilantly. The Islamic Center of Irvine embraced him — until he began talking of violent jihad.
Congregants reported him to the FBI and Irvine police, and then obtained a restraining order against him. Only later did they discover Monteilh was working for the FBI.
