Political correctness is always petty, often infuriating, and sometimes does no permanent harm. But occasionally it's a threat to the nation's security. When a paperclip general at the Pentagon surrenders to the enemy at the first sound of the popguns, the harm can be permanent.
I agree with former FBI counterterrorism agent John Guandolo that the Boston Marathon bombings are a continuation of a Muslim jihad against the United States ("Former FBI agent predicts more attacks in Muslim jihad," Web, April 21). That's why I think the gun-control issue and immigration-reform issue are oxymorons. At a time when our country is at war, this is certainly not a time to take the guns away from law-abiding, registered Americans. It was a homemade pressure-cooker bomb that caused the deaths and injures, not guns.
Before the Boston Marathon bombings, the Obama administration argued for years that there is a big difference between terrorists and the tenets of Islam.
The Boston Marathon bombings are a continuation of a Muslim jihad against the United States dating back before the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, says a former FBI agent dedicated to warning America about the Islamist threat.
Two key national security nominations by President Obama are up for confirmation following Congress' recess this week: former Republican Sen. Chuck Hagel to be secretary of defense, and John O. Brennan, the president's key counterterrorism adviser, to be the director of the CIA.
FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III told a congressional hearing on Thursday that the bureau is conducting a review of training programs after disclosure of materials that equated devout Muslims with a greater propensity for violent extremism.
A classified State Department cable made public recently finally has shed some light on persistent Chinese military secrecy and its refusal to hold nuclear talks with the United States: China fears discussing its nuclear arsenal will weaken the deterrent value.
A federal judge will hear arguments Monday on a preliminary injunction against one of the most contentious ballot measures in this month's elections -- an Oklahoma referendum that banned state courts from considering international or Islamic law when deciding cases.
"There is no strategy in the FBI," he told The Times. "At FBI headquarters, it is a daily fire drill. The threats come in, and they run around to deal with them and run them down. But because none of it can have anything to do with the Muslim Brotherhood's movement in the U.S. or Islam, they never address the root cause and common investigative realities."
"Why did they do this? What will it take for the U.S. media and American leadership to face the reality of the imposing danger breathing down our necks the global Islamic Movement," Mr. Guandolo wrote. "These men did this because they are commanded to. The global jihad is on."
