Important, the two DHS right wing extremist reports

In July of 2008 the DHS released a report on right wing terrorism to the security and police services. In April they released a NEW report to the same folk...both, of course, were leaked. Here are links to both reports:

The left is claiming that BOTH administrations did the same thing here. I considered the idea and then did something different. I compared the two...

(U) Activity by Returning Veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan
(U//FOUO) White supremacist extremist Web sites
tend to view the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan as an opportunity to recruit new members by depicting the war in Iraq in particular as fought in service of Israel, or as a distraction from domestic concerns, such as immigration.xxv Their advocacy for these issues has created an expectation among some extremists that the movement will benefit from an influx of sympathetic Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans.xxvi By exploiting anti-government sentiment among those opposed to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the FBI assesses
extremists hope to revitalize a movement suffering
from loss of leadership and in-fighting since 9/11.
(U//FOUO) Veterans returning from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have not joined the extremist movement in numbers sufficient to stem declines or compensate for the splintering experienced by most major national extremist organizations. According to FBI information, an estimated 19 veterans (approximately 9 percent of the 203) have verified or unverified service in the ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Twelve of these have primary affiliations with the national organizations NSM (7), NA (4), and AN (1), six with skinhead groups, and one with white supremacist criminal gangs. FBI information indicates the activities engaged in by these individuals reflect those by veterans in the extremist movement generally since 9/11.
(U) National Alliance sticker
(U) Violence
(U//LES) The addition of returning veterans has not resulted in a more violent white supremacist extremist movement. While four of the 19 Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans identified by investigations have violent criminal histories involving assault charges or convictions, only one

The DHS should be afraid of veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan. These people are the best trained military personnel produced by this country in its entire history. The DHS knows this and they also know that the DHS fucked them up the ass with these asinine reports.

Something else here that no one is noting...As the second report appears to be simply the first report with the details scrubbed and the conclusions given another spin, where is the uproar. Remember the 'Bush Lied' meme? The, Bush had the intel reports scrubbed to reflect the conclusions he wanted...today we have a before and after example from this administration and the old media is dead silent.

It's all the same people. Only the few front people have changed.

Same ole' same ole'.

The idea of parties and change are out in front of the masses for them to ponder.

As long as they don't attempt to act or promote acting....then it's all good.
