On March 14, 2003 The Washington Post reported that "FBI officials met with leaders of Maryland's Muslim community in Frederick yesterday as part of a broader agency effort to combat terrorism by accounting for and building relationships with mosques and Islamic societies... 'If they have information about possible [terrorism], they need to know who to contact,' said FBI spokesman Barry Maddox. 'We're seeking their help...' Maddox added that the meeting, which included representatives from Montgomery County and Baltimore, was also intended to ease concerns among many Muslims that the agency is singling them out for scrutiny. The meeting was not open to the media."
