From the "Credit where it's due." file.

"First, this DHS assessment was begun more than a year ago, before Barack Obama was even nominated. It has absolutely nothing to do with 'tea parties,' and it was not done at the behest of the Obama administration. Second, I'm seeing it brought up repeatedly that the report contains a reference to veterans, mentioning that some of these groups are seeking to recruit them. This is nothing more than a fact, and the report even says that only a tiny number of veterans would join such groups -- but that their talents could bring a great deal of capability to the extremists. Has everyone simply forgotten that Timothy McVeigh was a veteran? The DHS report is not intended to target anyone but the most extreme elements of the far right, and it's depressing to see so many bloggers jumping to totally unwarranted conclusions."Credit where it's due, he's got it just right.
But who'da thunk?
