FBI director says Muslim-American relations good

FBI Director Robert Mueller acknowledged tension between his department and some in Muslim-American community over recent anti-terrorism tactics, but said that cooperation remains strong toward the shared goal of preventing attacks. “I would say we’re on the same page… While there may be some bumps I the road periodically, overall the relationship is exceptionally good,” said Mueller. The Council on American-Islamic Relations has been recently critical of FBI tactics it says only alienate Muslim-Americans, such as sending paid informants, some with criminal pasts, into mosques to try to identify members who might be swayed by fiery rhetoric or financial gain.
