FBI pulls flawed training aids

Washington - An FBI review of agent training material critical of Islam uncovered 876 offensive or inaccurate pages that had been used in 392 presentations, including a PowerPoint slide that says the bureau can sometimes bend or suspend the law.

The bureau has not released the material, but Democratic Senator Dick Durbin of Illinois described a few pages of it in a letter asking FBI Director Robert Mueller to institute five changes so that inappropriate FBI training on Islam does not happen again.

The bureau says the documents that are either offensive or inaccurate have been taken out of the presentations.
