Bridges TV Hosts Debate Between Muslims And FBI

Orchard Park, NY (WBEN) - A bit of history was made as a locally-based Muslim TV network hosted a debate between the Council on American-Islamic Relations, and the FBI, which has been criticized often by the group.
Bridges TV CEO Mo Hassan tells Newsradio 930 WBEN the two sides have been on opposite ends on issues, so to have the two sides sit down is significant.
The FBI's Paul Moskal says there is a lack of understanding. "Often times there are misconceptions not just among Arab-Americans, but the American public. The FBI is responsible for the enforcement of 250 different types of crimes, and the only way to get over that is to tell people what we're doing and how we go about doing it."
