New FBI Program Unfairly Targets Muslim Americans

I wrote an essay for Politico Magazine on a new counterterrorism program, Shared Responsibility Committees, that unfairly targets Muslim Americans. My article is in direct response to last week’s cover story for the magazine, which quoted an unnamed, senior law enforcement official, who reported that the committees are being beta tested in undisclosed pilot cities. I was invited by the FBI to review the program and believe it’s overreaching, ineffective and stigmatizes Muslim Americans.
