Durbin: 'I Asked For' FBI Training Manual Purge Of 'Wrong' And 'Embarrassing' Docs About Muslims
by Kerry Picket
Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin says he requested the purge of almost 900 pages of documentation in the FBI training manual that Muslim advocacy groups found offensive.
"I asked for it, because there were provisions in the training manual which were flat out wrong and embarrassing and they didn't characterize the threat to America properly and after the FBI re-visited the manual, they changed it and I'm glad they did," Durbin told The Daily Caller Wednesday.
Durbin sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee and listened to testimony Tuesday at a subcommittee hearing that explored federal law enforcement's lack of emphasis of "radical Islam in combating terrorism."
