Muslim "Terror Threat" Belied by Numbers
By Jim Lobe*
There are aspects of behavior on the part of DHS and Janet Napolitano that remind me of a cult. One of them is the constant hyping of threats from without in order to control those within. Others include group-think hallmarks such as thought-stopping clichés, constant "retraining", obsession with secrecy concerning doctrine and practices, and secret hit-lists of supposed "enemies." The ruthlessness with which the quash whistleblowers of every stripe is chilling.
They're a creepy bunch, particularly given their federal powers and federal funding.

We need to stop glamorizing "terrorism" and call it what it really is: criminality
But then we couldn't run around screaming, "The Terrorists! The Terrorists Are Coming!"
The Founding Fathers truly were brilliant:
"If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy." - James Madison

How many billions of dollars have we spent chasing ghosts?
It's tough to belly up to the trough of DHS funding if small town police departments can't arrest teenagers for supposed terroristic activity.
