Vets as Threats?

I just saw a news story on a report delivered by the Department of Homeland Security. The report, an intelligence assessment, apparently says that there is a strong threat of "man-made natural disasters" (Obama-speak for terrorist incident) from homegrown right-wing groups who are actively recruiting "disgruntled war veterans." Apparently, those of us who believe in the Second Amendment, have served in the military, and who disagree with the policies of the current administration and the liberal Congress are a security threat. I don't think so! Go read Lt Nixon's Rant on this subject. He says everything I wanted to say when I saw the story; but much better!

UPDATE: David K. Rehbien, the National Commander of the American Legion, has sent an open letter to Janet Napolitano, the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, responding to the "incomplete and ... politically-biased report" and protesting the Department's characterization of military veterans as potential terrorists. It's a great letter. Read it here.
