A presentation on Islamic terrorism that's been promoted by the Pottawattamie County Republican Party chairman is drawing criticism, including from the Iowa chapter of an Islamic civil rights organization.

The event, titled "Understanding the Threat — the Muslim Brotherhood's Secret Strategies for the USA," will feature a presentation by former FBI agent and current law enforcement trainer John Guandalo and Chris Gaubatz, author of "The Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That's Conspiring to Islamize America."

The event — which is scheduled to run from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday at the Oakland Community Center, 614 Dr. Van Zee Road in Oakland — is being hosted by the Omaha-based Global Faith Institute and 88 Tactical Elite Training Organization. The partners are also hosting an event with the speakers in Omaha tonight.
