Napolitano: Returning vets too stupid to avoid extremists
HOTAIR.COM ^ | 4/20/2009 | Ed Morrisey

Posted on 04/20/2009 8:39:29 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

Janet Napolitano continues to thrash around for any rationalization she can find for the DHS report that painted political organizing on abortion, federalism, and immigration as potential national-security threats and called returining military vets a danger to the country they served. Yesterday on CNN, Napolitano tried explaining that the DHS doesn’t see these vets as threats. The DHS sees them as saps who don’t know any better than to fall into extremist traps:

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano on Sunday portrayed veterans as victims – not perpetrators – of right-wing extremism as she sought to combat the political controversy arising out of an April 14 Homeland Security memo warning that returning soldiers could be ripe for domestic terrorism participation.

“The report is not saying that veterans are extremists. Far from it,” Napolitano said on CNN’s State of the Union. “What it is saying is returning veterans are targets of right-wing extremist groups that are trying to recruit those to commit violent acts within the country. We want to do all we can to prevent that.”

Yes, the poor dears are victims that obviously can’t decide themselves not to join violent groups … none of which the report bothers to name, by the way. Unlike the report on left-wing extremism, which names several known groups with track records of violence, the DHS report that Napolitano continues to defend never bothers to name an actual threat. Instead, it repeatedly states that DHS has no data on actual threats:

The DHS/Office of Intelligence and Analysis (I&A) has no specific information that domestic rightwing* terrorists are currently planning acts of violence, but rightwing extremists may be gaining new recruits by playing on their fears about several emergent issues.

And how does the DHS identify “domestic rightwing* terrorists”?

Rightwing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups, movements, and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups), and those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.

So the Federalist Society has gone from being a group that follows the Constitutional tradition to being a potentially dangerous extremist group! And what did the report actually say about veterans? Page 2, the first mention of veterans in the report, makes veterans sound more like perps than victims:

The possible passage of new restrictions on firearms and the return of military veterans facing significant challenges reintegrating into their communities could lead to the potential emergence of terrorist groups or lone wolf extremists capable of carrying out violent attacks.

That doesn’t say that terrorist groups will exploit senseless veterans and trick them into becoming violent terrorists. It presumes that veterans have a predisposition to become violent extremists because of the difficulties that they have “reintegrating into their communities.” It’s the latest corollary to the every-Vietnam-vet-is-a-powderkeg belief. It’s not until two pages later that the report mentions the issue of recruitment and radicalization. And on page 8, we get this rather large section header: (U) Disgruntled Military Veterans

Napolitano is not only condescending towards veterans in her latest rationalization, she’s being completely dishonest about the way the DHS assessment treats returning combat vets. The report identifies them as a potential national-security threat to the country which they defended on the front lines.

DHS needs to stick to watching the groups themselves, and not people exercising their First Amendment rights and returning military veterans. In fact, the first thing Napolitano should do is to actually get threat data, instead of making up a bunch of scare stories about political dissent while not bothering to identify actual known racist and white-supremacist groups with track records of violence who should be watched.

That all depends on the capons running the GOP nationally.

If Boehner, McConnell, Steele et al have their way, we will be looking at another four years of this jackass after 2012, simply because they refuse to take advantage of political vulnerabilities.

Vets have nothing to be upset about - unless you think the Obama plan to make them pay their own medical bills for combat injuries would irritate them. They might be a little vexed about the VA determining that they weren’t going to pay disability for hearing loss because it would be too expensive due to the number of claims. Maybe they got wound up about the budget cuts that will have them fighting with outdated equipment. It could be that the budget cuts eliminated crucial training and sends GIs into combat without ever having conducted live fire with the equipment they operate.

It's the 'Civilian national security corps, as powerful and as well-funded as the military' that we might be concerned about.

Tivy grad turned soldier returns from Kuwait

About 85 well-wishers welcomed home a Tivy High School graduate recently, following his 10-month deployment to Kuwait.

The celebration, organized by the soldier’s mother, Delores Goodloe, of Kerrville, took place April 4 at Carver Park and came somewhat as a surprise for Army Reserves Sgt. Marlon “Jocko” Goodloe, 37.

“I was expecting a little get-together, a few friends, nothing at that level. Wow,” he said, earlier this week.

While the soldier’s decision to join the military came as no surprise to his mother, she said she’s proud all the same. Goodloe’s father, Dorsey Battles, of Georgia, is a retired Air Force officer. Also, his grandfather, uncles and cousins served in the military.

Hey Janet Napolitano - did you know Bill Ayers was a self confessed unrepentant terrorists - and he's a liberal?

As is his wife?

Can I assume all liberals are potential terrorists bases on Ayers?

If I "profiled" you back - wondered how you could self identify with Bill Ayers - would you find it “hateful”? Or just stupid?

The report identifies them as a potential national-security threat to the country which they defended on the front lines.

Perhaps they fear them marching into the houses and arresting them for Treason... and there is certainly enough evidence to set some hanging. (Murtha’s slander of then uninvestigated & untried marines who were IN A WAR-ZONE and ACTING ON THE ROE! {you always have the right to defend yourself; you always have the right to defend US forces... except when a Congressman might see you. [/sarc]}, The stand against regulation by Franks & Dodd {On record} who then blame the current ‘catastrophic’ economic crisis on deregulation {also on record} refusing so much as an ‘I was wrong’; many of the sitting members of Congress who, amidst their constituents calling in a 300:1 raite AGAINST the first bailout, refused to even slow-down/think and passed it anyway {and it is being used as an excuse to rob more taxpayer monies!}, Also the Federal Judges who ruled that Murtha’s slander WAS protected by law {He is NOT an employee; we can fire employees. The immunity for speech only applies to senitors/representitives for the speech/debate IN THE HOUSES... not as public, on-record news-press statements.} )

Hell, maybe _I_ should become a USSC judge... at least I can read and look up the meanings of words! [/disgust]

There's a scene in "Moby Dick" where, the longboats have been out harpooning whales (fantastic photography!), and Captain Nemo, having learned that "the great white" was in another area has called the boats back and ordered the men aboard to go on chase.

I forget the name, but the first mate (I think) voices for the men, that it's been a productive morning, and (I think this is a quote .. ) .. "But Cap'n .. we've been killin' all mornin' ... y'can't call us in now."

Nemo ignores the plea and the fact that they are in a lucrative whale field to go on his insane quest.

Napolitano and the entire zero administration is in fear of Americans (the 2nd ammendment), and the military (they've tasted blood)

"“What it is saying is returning veterans are targets of right-wing extremist groups that are trying to recruit those to commit violent acts within the country. We want to do all we can to prevent that.”

Not that our military is blood thirsty ... but consider ...

If I (f'rinstance) returned after a tour in a combat/killing zone .. and I was there for the idealism I had been taught as a child and matured as an adult/warrior ... and came home to this zero administration ... I just might be a dangerous man on my own ... I recognize the enemy, and I have been trained to eliminate him.

zero is afraid of us

We have them surrounded ... there are more of us than them.

In fact, the first thing Napolitano should do is to actually get threat data, instead of making up a bunch of scare stories about political dissent while not bothering to identify actual known racist and white-supremacist groups with track records of violence who should be watched.

In fact, the first thing Napolitano should do is resign. The fact that she hasn't merely confirms that we have a drive by media which agrees with the DHS assessment. It's the latest version of John Kerry saying veterans are schmucks who joined the military because they had no prospect of good civilian jobs and Vietnam baby killers. Welcome home, indeed.

I guess the founding fathers were right wing extremists, then, since that is precisely what they wanted - a federal government with very limited, well defined powers with the remaining powers going to the states and the people!!

She should be removed for ignorance and or stupidity, not to mention for failing to uphold her oath to defend the constitution!

Hussein has been working on his "Members of the military are crazy as bedbugs" narrative since he became the Democrat nominee, as noted in this June 10, 2008 Thomas Sowell column:

Senator Obama says he wants the Secretary of Defense to tell him, swiftly:

"What changes will you make to provide our soldiers in theater with real access to mental health care?"

"What training has the Pentagon provided our medical professionals in theater to recognize who might be at risk of committing suicide?"

"What assistance are you providing families here at home to recognize the risk factors for suicide, so that they may help our service members get the assistance they need?"

"What programs has the Pentagon implemented to help reduce the stigma attached to mental health concerns so that service members are more likely to seek appropriate care?"

The last 2 US military veterans to become terrorists were John Allen Muhammad (DC sniper, NOI member, attended million man march) and Sgt. Asan Akbar (muslim convert) who murdered Captain Christopher Seifert. Both of these muslim converts committed terrorist acts after the Murrah Federal Building was bombed in 1995. Yet Napolitano conveniently forgets these events and pulls Timothy McVeigh out of her ass.

Keep telling yourself that. The military of today is quite different than the military of my days. Today you have gangbangers joining to gain military skills, you have liberals of many stripes joining to get their education paid for, you have kids that had no other choice in life but to join who will probably do exactly as they’re ordered (as they’re taught), etc. There are plenty of LIBERALS in the military. To delude one’s self into thinking that there are no pinkos in uniform is dangerous.

I will grant that most of the military will choose correctly, but you still have many that won’t.

I'm beginning to think the unthinkable. We need a military coupe. Generals take over the office of the president until (a) his citizenship is confirmed or (b) the 2012 election comes around. Obama isn't competent. Biden is brain damaged and Pelosi just spent $4 TRILLION in Chines money and put it on our tab.

The USA has become a joke...

No, we don’t need or want a military coup. Then we become just like any other banana republic and our military’s credibility is destroyed. Our military then becomes suspect as it relates to being subservient to civilian authority.

Who would then trust the military to never intervene ever again? What if the military became dominated by liberals who didn’t like the conservative government? No, it’s an extremely sharp two-edged sword you’re playing with there.

What we need to do is to continue to keep the pressure on in a rational manner. Anything else marginalizes the efforts conservatives make, once your marginalized you lose credibility.
