This from the illustrious Pamela (thanks to E.), and I can say that law enforcement officials at various levels have told me exactly the same thing:
Can’t reveal my sources on this but here’s something to chew on.
“Public information officers or spokesman for law enforcement agencies are purposely downplaying and in some cases lying outright to the public about arrests of Muslims in the US,” so said one Federal law enforcement official.
“We have been told what to say, and more important, what not to say, and warned not to deviate from the ‘template.’
According to this source, this is causing some officers within various departments of federal agencies to become angry at the ‘mandated political spin and pressure” created by ‘orders from above.” When asked who were giving such orders, this source could only say that it was from the “big boys in Washington DC.”
Apparently this is killing morale and “everyone knows it’s a joke.” “It makes some of us sick, the politically correct shit we have to put up with.”
The source whose father was an agent during the 1960s racial problems said what was happening then was nothing short of easy compared to now. “In those days at least there was some honesty in dealing with the problem, today there is none.”
Pamela says this was in response to inquiries about this story.
