Remember When the Obama Administration Warned About Right-Wing Extremists?

Remember when the Obama administration raised a red flag about veterans becoming right-wing extremist but it caved under ah, pressure from right-wing extremists?

Remember the DHS report about Veterans being recruited to Right-Wing terrorist groups which was leaked and led newly appointed Homeland Secretary Janet Napolitano to initially defending the report but later having to apologize and withdrawing the report after she was thrown under the bus by her own party (Bennie Thompson, Congressman from MS) & severely criticized by Republicans.


That was then (2009):

From Fox:  Napolitano Apologizes to Veterans Group for ‘Rightwing Extremism’ Report

From LiveLeak: Failed Obama clown posse apologizes to US vets after calling them right wing extremists

From RightWingNews: Napolitano Apologizes To Veterans For DHS Report

This is now:

Temple gunman Wade Michael Page had ties to military and racist rock music

Sihk Temple Shooter Was a Military Veteran

Sikh temple shooting suspect identified as former U.S. Army soldier Wade Michael Page

Look at us now.

    Is this kinda like Nat’l Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice declining to act on the President’s Daily Briefing because it’s title “Bin Laden Determined to Strike U.S.” did not contain an “action point”?

    I guess too it establishes during at the best of times, that responsible public official must deal with inconvenient, politically voluble “facts.” That it’s best to strive for intellectual honesty and move forward with your truth with integrity. Even when certain constituencies are bound to contort your actions to their own particular benefit.
