Ulterior Motives

Reader comment on item: The FBI Loses Its Way [with Marwan Kreidie]

Submitted by D Bird (United States), Jul 15, 2004 at 18:08

I've read several postings over the last year or so where Dr. Pipes has brought out such concerns. I was shocked at first, but a pattern almost seems to be developing. Is it possible that the FBI has ulterior motives when recognizing individuals like Kreidie who are leaders within the Islamic community? Excuse the cliche, but maybe they are using honey to catch a fly. I just have a hard time believing reasonably intelligent people (big assumption... I know) within the FBI can't distinguish friend from foe.
