Right-wing extremists seen as a threat…

…says the report of Greg Miller of the LAT.

The economic downturn and the election of the nation's first black president are contributing to a resurgence of right-wing extremist groups, which had been on the wane since the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995, according to a U.S. intelligence assessment distributed to state and local authorities last week.

The report, produced by the Department of Homeland Security, has triggered a backlash among conservatives because it also raised the specter that disgruntled veterans returning from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan might "boost the capabilities of extremists . . . to carry out violence."
This scenario is not totally implausible considering the military services have been obtaining hundreds, if not thousands, of waivers for felons, people the military used to summarily dismiss, refusing them waivers for their past crimes and enlist.

And they are right to fear right-wing extremist groups and convicted felons that have now received military training that makes the danger of them forming new gangs with military training in the use of heavy duty weapons, training dealing with counterinsurgency methods and techniques, how to shoot straight, how to set up ambushes, and witnessing the terror and havoc that a single dedicated terrorist can cause with proper training. Training I'm sure that they will not hesitate to teach to their felonious gangs.

Monsters, gwb armed and trained monsters in his wildly insane prosecution of an unnecessary war to steal control of Iraqi oil which America could have purchased on the open market for a lesser price than America has paid by trying to obtain control of all that oil.

And damned near all the religious right groups have done is to propound hatred towards any person not following their edicts, even if they are American citizens. They openly called for the assassination of an American presidential nominee. These are dangerous people and constitute, IMO, the greatest threat of future domestic terrorism.
