The FBI on Thursday defended its inclusion of a Chicago Muslim cleric tied in the past to the terrorist groups Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood in a group that recently visited the National Counterterrorism Center and FBI headquarters.
"Due to information revealed during the background investigation, Sheik Kifah Mustapha's appointment as a volunteer ISP chaplain was denied," he said, declining to comment further because the matter is the subject of a lawsuit.
State police spokesman Sgt. Isaiah D. Vega confirmed that Mr. Mustapha is no longer a chaplain.
