FBI launches website to stop online terror recruitment amid criticism
by Mukhtar Ibrahim
The FBI has launched an interactive website this week aimed at preventing young people from being recruited online by terrorist groups.
The website has been criticized by some Muslim civil rights organizations and counterterrorism experts invited to review the program after they learned the program was aimed at schools and community leaders.
Dubbed "Don't Be a Puppet: Pull Back the Curtain on Violent Extremism," the website includes five interactive sections, such as "How Do Violent Extremists Make Contact?" and "Why Do People Become Violent Extremists?"
