SMART FBI trainer warns agents to "forget about al-Qaeda and go after Islam instead"

A leading FBI analyst who gave a lecture last year criticising mainstream Muslims has been caught on camera giving a second presentation urging agents to ‘forget Al Qaeda’ and ‘go after the Death Star’ of Islam.

UK DAILY MAIL  The Bureau’s William Gawthrop was recorded making the ‘dangerous’  truthful remarks to an audience of over 60 law enforcement officials during a counter-terrorism seminar in New York three months ago. Gawthrop’s presentation in June told the audience that the fight against Al Qaeda is a ‘waste’ compared to the threat posed by the ideology of Islam itself. (He’s 100% right!)

The controversial training seminar then went on to compare the ‘internal forces which seek to exert Islamic rule’ to the Death Star in the Star Wars films.

Gawthrop’s 25-minute speech has since been branded ‘mind-numbingly stupid and dangerous’ (by Muslims of course) and has drawn strong criticism from top (Muslim asskissing dhimmi) Senators and representatives from Arab and Muslim-American groups.

During the lecture on June 8, Gawthrop tells the audience: ‘We waste a lot of analytic effort talking about the type of weapon, the timing, the tactics. All of that is irrelevant… if you have an Islamic motivation for actions.’ According to Gawthrop, even taking down hostile states like Iran is futile, since ‘there are still internal forces that will seek to exert Islamic rule again.’

He added: ‘Look at the motive first… if you have an Islamic motivation for actions, group those together. ‘So what is this doctrine? It is an expansive doctrine with a single objective: world imperial, controlling the world.  (If you read the Quran or the Muslim Brotherhood Doctrine, it’s all written right there)

‘That sounds grandiose… but it is a stated objective. The means to do that is jihad. Jihad is rooted in doctrine. There are identifiable rules of engagement and we will discuss that.’ Gawthrop goes on: ‘If you remember Star Wars, that ventilation shaft that goes down to into the depths of the Death Star, they shot a torpedo down there. That’s a critical vulnerability.’

During the presentation Gawthrop then waved a laser pointer at his projected PowerPoint slide, highlighting the words ‘Holy Texts’ and ‘Clerics.’ He then adds: ‘We should be looking at, should be aiming at, these.’

Aki Peritz, a former intelligence analyst at the National Counterterrorism Center, now with the Third Way think-tank in Washington, told ‘This is mind-numbingly stupid and dangerous. (No, it is  intelligent and accurate and only dangerous if it is ignored)

‘If we were to follow his idea to a logical extension, that means we have individuals in every single government agency, at top levels, from CIA to the Defense Department to members of Congress, that are part of this cabal to destroy Western civilization. (We DO! See links below)

‘If you truly believe that, then this is McCarthyism on steroids.’(McCArthy was right. And so is the FBI now)

According to, Gawthrop delivered his speech at the New York chapter of Infragrad, a public-private partnership between the FBI and the private sector. Infragrad has chapters across the U.S. ‘dedicated to sharing information and intelligence to prevent hostile acts against the United States’.

Bosses at Infragrad have since defended the comments made by Mr Gawthrop, insisting that he made a ‘good presentation’.
