White House to testify at hearing on ‘home-grown’ militants
Saturday 3rd December 2011 | Muharram 7, 1433

WASHINGTON: The Obama administration has signaled it will cooperate with a controversial congressional inquiry into alleged threats posed by “home-grown” Islamic militants that critics have branded a “witch hunt.”

The House of Representatives Committee on Homeland Security said on its website that the White House would supply two official witnesses for the December 7 hearing on “The threat to military communities inside the United States.”

The committee, chaired by Republican Representative Peter King, had led controversial hearings earlier this year on alleged domestic Islamic radicalization.The administration’s apparent decision to take part in the hearings could expose it to criticism from American Muslims and civil liberties groups on a hot-button issue they say reflects anti-Muslim bias, just as an election year begins.

The hearing, which will be held jointly with the Senate’s Homeland Security Committee, chaired by Independent Joseph Lieberman, is the latest in a series of politically-charged hearings launched by King into alleged efforts by Islamic militants to recruit and radicalize American citizens on US soil.

It’s the native, law-abiding citizens that are the threat to the criminals in business suits in the District of Criminals and not Obama’s Occupy law-breakers or the Muzzies terrorists!

Your pedophile worship, polygamy and extreme misogyny offends me GREATLY. Get the #311 out of my country. Your ideals are antagonistic to Americans’.

Items to consider:

Andrew C. McCarthy III
NRO November 30, 2011

The McCain-Levin amendment does not authorize civil-liberties violations.

“In sum, the McCain-Levin amendment is marginally beneficial but hardly a bombshell.”


Michele Bachmann recently stated that she, as a member of the Congressional Intelligence Committee, was even more concerned about the threat to our security than she was about the threat to our economy-and she is very, very concerned about the economy to the degree that she advocates stockpiling survival provisions. It may be that there is something up of a truly serious security threat and Congress feels that it must set up a framework for a society in chaos, or in rubble? Bachmann, of course, said she could not reveal more.



Be sure and read BOTH the “editorial AND reader reviews” at Amazon on:

Catherine Herridge’s New Book — ‘The Next Wave: On the Hunt for Al Qaeda’s American Recruits’

The next wave of deadly terror is here and now. Washington shuts its eyes. And the next massacre in the name of Islam will be “Made in the U.S.A.”

TERROR WALKS AMONG US. Born here, raised here, plotting here, the terrorists of al Qaeda 2.0 aim to kill Americans. And our government helps.

Who are the recruits for the next wave? They live next door.

A radicalized army major guns down forty-five, killing twelve soldiers and one civilian; an airport shuttle-bus driver plots a subway slaughter; a legal immigrant tries to blow up Times Square while another fanatic hopes to kill hundreds at a Christmas tree–lighting ceremony . . . and a radical Muslim born in New Mexico has a legion of fanatics in his web.
The Next Wave reveals the shocking story of how that blood-crazed American, Anwar al-Awlaki­now hiding in Yemen­was treated to Pentagon pomp as a “moderate Muslim,” and how our Justice Department hid his movements from the 9/11 Commission . . . even though al-Awlaki aided the 9/11 hijackers.

The terrorists next door turn our tech against us, exploiting Facebook, Skype, and our outdated laws. Online terror recruiters are one of the Web’s greatest success stories­yet our government refuses to stop them. Activists howl about “inhuman” conditions at Guantánamo­while pampered inmates laugh at our weaknesses.

The next wave of deadly terror is here and now. Washington shuts its eyes. And the next massacre in the name of Islam will be “Made in the U.S.A.”

“Written with no-nonsense clarity, moral rigor and hard-earned expertise, The Next Wave is a landmark in investigative journalism. This book by our most-relentless reporter on national security reveals in sharp detail how Washington’s infighting, political correctness and outright duplicity enable home-grown Islamist terrorists to attack Americans—by turning our own freedoms and laws against us. Fierce, first-rate and frightening.”
­Ralph Peters, former U.S. Army intelligence officer and author of Endless War: Middle-Eastern Islam vs. Western Civilization.
