The Associated Press reports the Obama administration last fall announced a program called Countering Violent Extremism - billing it as a community-driven initiative to tackle terrorism and militant recruitment by preventing radicalization from taking root - and said it was being tested in Los Angeles, Boston and Minneapolis. Local law enforcement officials have been doing such outreach for years. But now that federal officials are putting their stamp on it, the program is creating suspicion among American Muslims and others who fear it is profiling disguised as prevention and worry it could compromise civil liberties and religious freedoms. The effort divides Muslim leaders who, on one side, argue that more must be done to fight extremism in their community and that this program is a historic opportunity for input. On the other side are those who fear the program is just another veiled way for law enforcement to target their community.
