Those of us that live in Arizona have known for years the distaste Napolitano has for the "rightwing" of the Republican Party. But, even some of us are surprised that the politically correct former governor of the state of Arizona would be so brazen as to describe those that love their country enough to enlist and fight for our freedom would potential become a threat to our safety.
I have to give John Boehner credit. He has been doing a great job of voicing the conservative point of view. "To characterize men and women returning home after defending our country as potential terrorists is offensive and unacceptable," said Boehner, R-Ohio, the House Minority Leader.
Even commander David Rehbein of the American Legion expressed his concern to the Homeland Security leader calling the assessment by DHS incomplete and lacking statistical evidence. Of course Rehbein is correct. The document is laden with unsubstantiated statements that appear to be written by some liberal political hack instead of a professional team authorized to protect and secure our nation from terrorism. Looks like Janet Napolitano is turing DHS into a non-credible political government entity; one that will be used to move forward the Obama administration's liberal agenda. I knew liberals hated war and the military, but I did not see this coming!
As always, Napolitano defended the Assessment. She never has nor never will admit she is wrong. "Let me be very clear—we monitor the risks of violent extremism taking root here in the United States," Napolitano said. "We don't have the luxury of focusing our efforts on one group; we must protect the country from terrorism whether foreign or homegrown, and regardless of the ideology that motivates its violence."
What a bunch of malarky. Of course no one is saying much about the Assessment's disparaging remarks about those who store food. I thought DHS and our communities asked us to start a food supply after 9-11. Now those that have may be in danger of being classified as potential terrorists!
There is so much more to be offended by in this document. But, most noteworthy is coloring veterens with such a disrepectful brush. We in America give our citizens more credit than that.
This document is radical, extreme and dangerous.
