    [​IMG]In today’s Newsday OpEd New York Rep. Peter King announced his election by the House Republican Conference to chair the Homeland Security Committee, and his intention to hold hearings on “the radicalization of American Muslim community and homegrown terrorism.” Of course, King’s reputation for anti-Muslim rhetoric has many Muslims concerned that King’s inquiry will be more like this century’s version of the Red Scare era House UnAmerican Activities Committee hearings.

    King writes, “Federal and local law enforcement officials throughout the country told me they received little or - in most cases - no cooperation from Muslims.” Yet, a recent study from the Muslim Public Affairs Council says almost forty percent of al-Qaida-related terror plots since September 11, 2001 were thwarted with the help of the Muslim community.

    Obama will throw the Muslims under the bus with this guy, just like everyone else.

    Civil liberties don't mean shit in ClintObamaBushland.

    Peter King is a complete and utter ass....a conservative blowhard who's a holdover from the corrupt political system of Suffolk County on Long Island, New York. Small wonder that the neocon driven GOP will elevate him to this post, as they need to keep their narrative going to maintain the legend of the Shrub era being right on all accounts.

    Even if he gets re-elected, I doubt Obama will have the cojones to desolve the essentially redundant and money wasting Homeland Security and re-install the successful Clinton program....who accomplished the same (if not better) results with nothing more than simple weekly meetings and subsequent coordination.

    What's the problem exactly? They should stick to investigating baseball and Toyota? Or you don't think we have worries about radical muslims on American soil?

    Clinton created numerous barriers to interagency communication. He actively pitted one against the other and his legacy is 9/11.

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but Richard Clarke set the record straight on that one regarding how Clinton stopped the inter-agency bullshit with simple weekly meetings and one rule...."Everyone better have something to tell me or heads will roll". And for 7 years, NO terrorist plots were completed, several were stopped.

    Then the Shrub comes in an literally throws out/ignores all things Clinton.....and 9-11 happens. So now we've got a bloated bureaucracy that essentially wastes money, has NOT reached all it's security goals (according to the GAO) that replaces the more effective Clinton policy. 'Nuff said.

    What's wrong with calling Muslim extremists "Muslim extremists?"
