This is from Dr. Waller's testimony:
When we discuss the chaplain issue, we should keep it in a larger context. That context spans 40 years of Wahhabi political warfare as an element of religious proselytizing - or, some would argue, political warfare of which proselytizing is an element.
The strategic goal is twofold: to dominate the voice of Islam around the world; and to exert control over civil and political institutions around the world through a combination of infiltration, aggressive political warfare, and violence.
We see this happening globally: In Pakistan and Egypt, the United Kingdom and continental Europe, in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Kosovo, in Russia and Turkey; in Southeast Asia, parts of Africa and Latin America; and here in the United States.
In this context, calling an Al Qaeda terrorist or any other political Islamist an Islamic terrorist or Muslim extremist is a fair game.

If the members of Congress have the courage to join the war to protect our Country against radical Islam and continue these hearings -- all the way -- boy, will I get a two-fer.
Not only do I get to relive the Vietnam war era treason and the political/media quagmire of politics over military -- I get to relive the McCarthy / House Committee on Un-American Activities Senate and House investigations!
Can't wait for the screaming to start about these hearings. Can't wait for the reluctant witnesses' sob stories and their press toadies' "outrage."
The CP/USA invented the term "McCarthyism" that was picked up and used effectively against fellow Americans by the press. Wonder what term will be used today. Not to worry. CAIR, DNC, DLC, ABCNNBCBS, NYT, LAT, et al. have focus groups going round the clock. They'll come up with something soon.
I hope this generation tells the press to go to Hell. We were too polite to get mean in the old days -- this time, let's hang 'em!.
What did I do with that case of Hadacol and my blue suede shoes -- and, oh yes, my copy of Nervous Norvus' "Transfusion"

On Oct. 6  at its National Convention in Seattle, the Society of Professional "Journalists" passed a resolution urging members and fellow "journalists" to take steps against racial profiling in their coverage of the war on terrorism and to redouble their commitment to:
Use language that is informative and not inflammatory; Portray Muslims, Arabs and Middle Eastern and South Asian Americans in the richness of their diverse experiences;
Seek truth through a variety of voices and perspectives that help audiences understand the complexities of the events in Pennsylvania, New York City and Washington, D.C.

5.When writing about terrorism, remember to include white supremacist, radical anti-abortionists and other groups with a history of such activity.

8. Avoid using word combinations such as "Islamic terrorist" or "Muslim extremist" that are misleading because they link whole religions to criminal activity. Be specific: Alternate choices, depending on context, include "Al Qaeda terrorists" or, to describe the broad range of groups involved in Islamic politics, "political Islamists." Do not use religious characterizations as shorthand when geographic, political, socioeconomic or other distinctions might be more accurate.
I'm afraid I'll have to ask you for your press pass.
