Al Qaeda and other terrorists are trying to infiltrate the U.S. armed forces, which makes military facilities in the U.S. dangerous for American troops, lawmakers said Wednesday.
The Department of Defense considers the U.S. homeland the most dangerous place for a G.I. outside of foreign war zones and the top threat they face here is from violent Islamist extremists, Rep. Peter T. King, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, said during a special joint House-Senate hearing.
The Fort Hood attack was not an anomaly, said Mr. King, New York Republican. It was part of al Qaedas two-decade success at infiltrating the U.S. military for terrorism an effort that is increasing in scope and threat.
Mr. Stockton denied charges from several Republican lawmakers that the militarys approach is hamstrung by political correctness.
We know who the adversary is. The primary threat is al Qaeda and its affiliates. And everything that we are doing in terms of primary focus of our efforts concentrates on that threat, he said.
Asked repeatedly by Rep. Daniel E. Lungren, California Republican, about his refusal to use the word Islamic or Islamist when describing al Qaeda, Mr. Stockton said branding terrorists as Muslims plays into their narrative that the United States is at war with Islam.
Sir, with great respect, I dont believe its helpful to frame our adversary as Islamic with any set of qualifiers that we might add, because we are not at war with Islam, he said.

Ft. Hood was just a workplace misunderstanding. Move along. Nothing to see.
No sh&*! Like the guy in Ft. Hood? Oh yeah...I forgot. That was labelled “workplace incident” or some such BS.
In a way, it's a continuation of the trend that started back in the mid-70s with the "Child On Board" bumper stickers. Cut me a whole lotta slack because I'm speaaacial.
Sir, with great respect, I dont believe its helpful to frame our adversary as Islamic with any set of qualifiers that we might add, because we are not at war with Islam,
And I say to you sir: BULLSHIT!
You FAIL Sun Tzu 101. Know your Enemy.
Obama and his marxist buddies will be proud.
Pogo. One of the greatest cartoon series ever published!
These radical islamists sure have a violent way of filing an equal opportunity complaint in the workplace.
First the WH and then the armed forces,stands to reason if they plan to win.
These people are either one of two things..
1. They have their heads so far up their a$$ as to be peeking out their belly buttons or
2. They are deliberately subverting the Constitution and the viability of the U.S. to successfully pursue the enemies of the country. That my friend is TREASON, but don't expect the USJD to do anything about it. WE are living with a tyrannical government with one complete branch in an open conspiracy to destroy the US.
Pogo was much more than that...likely worthy of a vote, given the situation as it now exists...
Why? Our admirals and generals are some of the best force multipliers that al-qaeda has.
I’ve a clue; a prediction for the quoted experts & others _out_wherever_:
Jihaders in US military lead to one or more large scale slaughters of US forces, military and/or civilian, anywhere; before you can imagine it.
Page_2, Jihader currently in WH, already enables page_1. I’d consider those uncovered CIA folks WRT the access any and all Jihaders, visiting or residing in WH.
Page_3, one or more Nazi’s inside of the US military during _that_ war would and did lead to sunk ships, lost battles, with scores x scores killed.
Page_4, Jihaderites inside USG/USMil enable WMD within USA, I’d say _are_ enabling it, now.
Fire him. He is an idiot and does not know history. We have been at war with the Mohammedans and their so called religion since we have been a nation and before that as part of England.
Why shouldn’t Muslim terrorists join the military? If they kill a bunch of Americans, Homeland Security’s got their back - work place violence excuses and all...?
In my almost 23 years of military service I have only known one muslim who was a Soldier. He was quirky and odd. I’ve known at least two Soldiers who were Jewish that I can recall. One was a super hard charger (infantry) and the other was incredibly good at his job (commo). I’d much prefer to work and Soldier alongside a Jew than a muslim.
Just a disturbed man. Not a terrorist. Move along. Nothing to see here: Sarc....
Judge: Man who pounded on cockpit door incompetent
9:32 AM CST, December 9, 2011
A Yemeni national who pounded on a cockpit door on an American Airlines flight from Chicago as it was descending to San Francisco has been ruled mentally incompetent to stand trial.
A federal judge on Thursday ordered 28-year-old Rageh Almurisi to spend four months in treatment before his mental state is reevaluated.
Almurisi has pleaded not guilty to interfering with a flight crew.
Witnesses saw him walk quickly toward the front of American Airlines flight 1561 on May 9 and bang on the cockpit door about a half hour before the plane was supposed to land while reportedly shouting “God is Great” in Arabic.
