Report: US Must Deal With Domestic Radical Problem (Muslims)
By LOLITA C. BALDOR
Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON The U.S. was slow to take seriously the threat posed by homegrown radicals and the government has failed to put systems in place to deal with the growing phenomenon, according to a new report compiled by the former heads of the Sept. 11 Commission.
The report says U.S. authorities failed to realize that Somali-American youths traveling from Minnesota to Mogadishu in 2008 to join extremists was not an isolated issue. Instead, the movement was one among several instances of a broader, more diverse threat that has surfaced across the country.
"Our long-held belief that homegrown terrorism couldn't happen here has thus created a situation where we are today stumbling blindly through the legal, operational and organizational minefield of countering terrorist radicalization and recruitment occurring in the United States," said the report, which was obtained by The Associated Press.
As a result, there is still no federal agency specifically charged with identifying radicalization or working to prevent terrorist recruitment of U.S. citizens and residents, said the report, slated to be released Friday by the Washington-based Bipartisan Policy Center's National Security Preparedness Group.
The group, headed by former 9-11 commission leaders Tom Kean and Lee Hamilton, laid out a detailed description of domestic terror incidents ranging from the Fort Hood, Texas, shooting spree and the attempted Christmas Day airliner attack in late 2009 to last May's botched truck bombing in New York's Times Square.
Over the past year, terrorism experts and government officials have warned of the threat posed by homegrown radicals, saying terror recruits who go abroad could return to the U.S. to carry out attacks.

What is so hard to understand...we must kill them first!
Time for Captain Obvious. If I didn’t know better, I would think maybe islam isn’t such a peaceful religion after all.
But to do that would be RACISM!
“Damn the Torpedoes, Full Speed Ahead” was the order of the moment by Capt. David Farragut IIRC the quote.
Today the “torpedoes” seem to be all the names we are called by the “useful idiot” Leftist’s if we state our dislike, distrust, or intent to do something about them, or their Muslim buddies that are using them.
There’s another old quote as well: “Sticks, and Stones....”
I say “Damn the Torpedoes....” Eff ‘em all, waste not a single vote, nor one single ounce of lead.
Sales of tactical shotguns are skyrocketing!
But. ..but. . shouldn’t we be investing all our time in wondering why they want to kill us? /s
What about suing our own states trying to uphold the law? We need more suing!/s
Members of that ideology can not live in civilization. They must be sent back to where they came from, and the borders closed so no more come in.
ever wonder why ground zero is still a hole in the ground?
I truly think our gubmint is scared s***less by the muzzies.
That would mean that Islam has taken us hostage and we are afraid to act on our own soil. It’s ok if we send troops around the world to fight but we can’t take a stand here.
What Bush should have done (and whatever Repub should do in 2012) is to immediately start work to rebuild the towers.
I think they should have been rebuilt exactly as they were in open defiance.
As long as there is a hole in the ground we are held hostage.
The blind squirrel (AP) has found an acorn. Accidentally, for certain.
Every base camp/barracks/mosque in the U.S.A. should be shut down. Mecca and Medina the twin towers of TOTALITARIANISM will become a smoldering ruins one day. Fair warning could be given to the citizens to exit to show compassion. 9-11-11 the 10 year anniversary would be an appropriate day.
Music for the naysayers to ponder their solutions...
If a Mullah or Iman issues a Fatwa against an American citizen or company is not that a Conspiracy and an CRIME?
Should we hold our breath until DOJ acts on this?
‘US Authorities” failed to understand. We the People understood on 9/11. Actions speak louder than words. Unless you are a dimwitted Person in Authority.
The only terrorists in this country according to the Obama regime are all of us “Teabagging reichwing Christiantists”.
The Islamofascists, envirowhackjobs, race/ethnic warriors and the radical left are the Obama regime and the Corruptocrat party’s BFF’s and allies.
All one has to do is follow the money that the Teresa Heinz-Kerry run The Tides Foundation and the George Soros run Open Society Institute hands out.
The lists of what they fund can be found here.
