Now Obama Zeroes In On Domestic Terror

President Obama, fresh off of a deal with international terrorists, is announcing an effort to re-establish a law-enforcement group to prevent homegrown terrorism, according to a report.
Reuters said the new panel, to be announced Tuesday, will focus on cases “that involve Americans who may be spurred to violence for political or prejudicial reasons.”
The panel apparently will include representatives from the National Security Division of the Justice Department, the attorney general’s office and the FBI. The announcement follows Obama’s decision to free five top terror commanders from the U.S. prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in exchange for an American soldier held by al-Qaida-linked terrorists in the Middle East.
At that time a newly unclassified Department of Homeland Security report warned of the possibility of violence by unnamed “right-wing extremists,” including opponents of abortion.
The DHS report was followed days later by a report from the Missouri Information Analysis Center that warned law enforcement officials to watch out for individuals with “radical” ideologies based on Christianity.
The Family Research Council, which was targeted by a confessed domestic terrorist more than a year ago, said it will be important to make sure politics are kept out of the debate.
“We must not allow the important work of national security to become diluted by political concerns or motivations secondary to seeking the truth about those who act in violence toward American interests,” said Ken Blackwell, a senior fellow for family empowerment at FRC.
Blackwell said that as the target of a domestic terrorist, Family Research Council “expresses gratitude and appreciation toward all law enforcement involved in the apprehension and prosecution of Floyd Corkins II.”
