President Obama has a “feel safe” sleep aid for Americans — stop thinking about Islamic terrorism as a domestic threat, and stop fretting about amnesty.
Don’t toss and turn because terrorists motivated by radical Islamic beliefs aren’t included in the FBI’s newly released “2013 National Threat Assessment for Domestic Extremism.” According to the highly-respected journalist Bill Gertz, writing for the Washington Free Beacon on Aug. 29:
The FBI’s most recent national threat assessment for domestic terrorism makes no reference to Islamist terror threats, despite last year’s Boston Marathon bombing and the 2009 Fort Hood shooting — both carried out by radical Muslim Americans.
Indeed, Islamists are specifically excluded as domestic threats, according to Gertz:
Instead, the internal FBI intelligence report concluded in its 2013 assessment published this month that the threat to U.S. internal security from extremists is limited to attacks and activities by eight types of domestic extremist movements — none motivated by radical Islam.
They include anti-government militia groups and white supremacy extremists, along with “sovereign citizen” nationalists, and anarchists. Other domestic threat groups outlined by the FBI assessment include violent animal rights and environmentalist extremists, black separatists, anti- and pro-abortion activists, and Puerto Rican nationalists.
Gertz also mentioned that a former FBI agent told him that the FBI has appointed a domestic Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas support organization leader to an FBI advisory council at the Washington headquarters
