.......singled out as particular threats

Has everyone seen this?

Homeland Security on guard for 'right-wing extremists'

The Commander of the American Legion responded:

Legion to DHS: Americans are not the enemy!


I think he was little to nice and politically correct, but it was far better than no response at all.

So what do you think?

IMHO, the report is simply further evidence that DHS was poorly conceived, probably does little or nothing to further homeland security, and should be abolished.
Of course, this opinion do doubt marks me as just another disgruntled US combat veteran (USAF: 1963-1970).

They were saying the same thing about lefties during the Bush administration.

I think it's sad that it's all right to call veterans, and other American Citizens terrorist but God forbid, not the Muslim extreamist here in the USA.

The link with the American Legion response is not opening for me. Can you re-post it, or give the name of the writer and the date?

I agree that the DHS spoke before thinking. While there have been American born and bred terrorists, it is wrong to single out any group, particularly veterans, of being a breeding ground for such threats. Timothy McVeigh and Eric Rudolf are two examples of American terrorists. One was in the army and one wasn't. And Timothy McVeigh did not become a terrorist in the army. He held unbalanced beliefs before he served in the army. If the DHS could get their heads out of a certain body cavity, they might see that by declaring one group a threat, they are automatically relaxing their vigilance in other areas. Don't limit your focus, be cognizant of all anomalies that might constitute a thread.

If you simply wear your DHS shirt all of this hassle can be avoided.
