If the program is too costly or doesn't reap the intended benefits or is an example of something masking some form of corruption or is redundant...
then why not simply kill the program? We already have more scrutiny on Islamic extremism and even the faintest whiff thereof whether real or unreal in
the U.S. than at any time in history.
We have the DHS, FBI, NSA, numerous data mining and collection and analysis tools, local law enforcement, and now customs, immigration, ICE, etc. all
focused with laser like intensity on Islamic extremism in America today, with unprecedented powers and reach that went into effect under Bush, only
expanded under Obama (rolled back in some ways, but not significantly imho, and other powers took their place anyway,) and are likely (clearly,
apparently) poised to be expanded further under Trump.
To take a program that - by not simply killing it - they acknowledge actually serves a function, but reorganize it solely to address something already
being profoundly and increasingly addressed... seems like it would simply reduce the ability to prevent other forms of extremism that the program
currently has... if it has any, which evidently it must, or else why refocus it toward this end rather than simply terminating its funding?
This despite, as others herein have pointed out, things like the non-Muslim extremists who plotted to bomb Muslim immigrants in Kansas just a few
months ago before being caught as their plan entered the imminent phase.
