On September 6, 2002 The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that "criticisms of law enforcement officials unfairly targeting Muslims and Arab Americans after the Sept. 11 attacks are valid, the head of the FBI's Philadelphia office said yesterday. The FBI and other agencies on guard against terrorism have been under attack by numerous civil-liberties and ethnic groups regarding their treatment of people, particularly Muslims and Arab Americans."
