U.S. reconstitutes group to fight homegrown extremists – Yahoo News

The United States is reviving a law enforcement group to investigate those it designates as domestic terrorists, the Department of Justice announced Tuesday.

Following hate-motivated shootings such as the one at a Jewish Community Center in Kansas City, Missouri in April, federal prosecutors have pressed the need to coordinate intelligence about such criminals on a national level, Justice Department officials said.

The Department of Justice will reconstitute a task force that was originally formed after the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing but dissolved after the Sept. 11, 2001 hijacked plane attacks as law enforcement agencies focused on threats from militants abroad.

It’s a damn shame the Obama administration has so politicized virtually every aspect of the federal bureaucracy to the point that my first thought is that this task force is designed not to prevent terrorism, but rather to generate leaks useful to smear conservative people and groups.

Here’s the thing about domestic terrorism. Virtually every act of it has been by “lone wolf” types, or at most two or three people. These individuals or tiny cells are virtually undetectable. And this coordinating committee is powerless to actually prevent any domestic terrorism unless and until any genuine threat is noticed by the first line of defense, local law enforcement. And if local law enforcement actually does detect (genuine) potential threats, they already have the ability to use either their own resources, or local FBI counter-terrorism assets to investigate and prosecute.

One is left wondering just what this task force’s real purpose is, if not to attempt to stoke fears among the left and the middle of the Tea Party and other conservative groups.

  1. Wow. The federal government intends to give me a loving, close embrace.

    I am mostly unchanged from a stalwart front-line defenser of freedom, whom the President had reposed special trust and confidence in my patriotism, valor, fidelity and abilities. That was then, back in the day.

    Now I am an excuse for totalitarian govenment action; a bitter-ender who is a speed bump on the path to progressivism. All the planning that goes into this is gallwood and ashes. It will never give the public desired results, only the hidden ends of control over the thralls who were once citizens of a great country.

  2. I’ll also mention that domestic terrs that have operated during my nearly 60 years in this Vail of tears, have been leftists. Since those are the type of people infesting DC these days, it is no wonder that they would go looking for people like us.
