WASHINGTON, Sept. 10, 2010
9/11 Commissioners Warn of Homegrown Terror
Former Heads of Bipartisan Group Say U.S. "Stumbling Blindly" in Policy to Counter Domestic Radicalization
As a result, there is still no federal agency specifically charged with identifying radicalization or working to prevent terrorist recruitment of U.S. citizens and residents, said the report, slated to be released Friday by the Washington-based Bipartisan Policy Center's National Security Preparedness Group.
The terrorists, said the report, may have discovered America's "Achilles' heel in that we currently have no strategy to counter the type of threat posed by homegrown terrorists and other radicalized recruits."

Airspoon you made a good point... How much Freedom and Liberty are we willing to give up for security? Now I know you and I don’t always see eye to eye, but I both think we can agree the answer is none.
HBO had a special not too long ago, (working on a thread about it now) but the guy mentioned that Osama Bin Laden has actually one the war on terror. He made America into something 60 years ago we killed NAZI's For.. 9-11 shook America to the Core, and we allowed Rendition, we allowed the Iraq war, we allowed gitmo, we allowed torture. That isn’t who America was, but it’s who we are now.
So yes the government can take their body scanners, there patriot act, there warrantless wire taps, they can shine them up real nice, stick a pretty bow, turn that sum b**th sideways and stick straight up their collective Candy Ass. (in the words of The Rock)
