The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) issued a news release last week touting an Air Force decision to review courses on prison radicalization taught by Patrick Dunleavy, an Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) fellow.
"We welcome this review and hope it results in our military personnel receiving training based on balanced and accurate information, not on personal or political agendas," said CAIR-Florida Communications Director Wilfredo A. Ruiz.
The statement actually exposes the empty and cynical nature of CAIR's complaint and shows that the true intent is to pressure the Air Force into silencing Dunleavy. CAIR has no idea what is in Dunleavy's instructional material. If it did, it would cite examples to illustrate its concern. This is the second release in CAIR's campaign against Dunleavy. Neither cites anything related to his teaching.
