Natives of Iraq who live in the U.S. are being interviewed by the F-B-I, but Larry Holmquist, a spokesman for the F-B-I office in Omaha, says they are not being interrogated. Holmquist says F-B-I agents are seeking any information that might be valuable to the war effort, but they also are talking with the Iraqi natives about so-called “hate crimes” and how the U.S. government can provide protection. Holmquist says the Iraqis who’re living in Iowa and Nebraska haven’t expressed any fears about hate crimes.Holmquist doesn’t know exactly how many Iraqi natives are living in Iowa and Nebraska, the region his office oversees. Holmquist says they won’t interview every single Iraqi who’s now living in the U.S. He says it’s very important that people understand they aren’t conducting adversarial interviews or targeting anyone.
