    The US Homeland Security Department, under fire for saying US forces returning from the Iraq and Afghan wars were potential right-wing extremist recruits, said Wednesday it honors US veterans.

    Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano sought to douse anger among conservatives and veterans groups like the American Legion over a report from her department warning of a rising threat of right-wing extremism.

    "We are on the lookout for criminal and terrorist activity but we do not -- nor will we ever -- monitor ideology or political beliefs," Napolitano said in a statement amid charges that the department had done just that.

    American Legion chief David Rehbein on Tuesday blasted the report as "incomplete, and, I fear, politically-biased" and took special aim at its warning that returning veterans having difficulties reintegrating society could be recruited by right-wing groups for possible terrorist attacks.

    Liberals managed to turn returning Vietnam war veterans into "ticking time bombs" to be feared , shunned and not given a job.

    Returning Irag and Afghanistan War veterans are going to be "security threats".

    I saddens me....and angers me at the same time.

    Could liberal/leftist theology be the result of a genetic mutation?

    Are right wing "christians" sincere in their faith or are they just political puppits?

    I noticed everyone is leaving off the word disgruntled.

    The report said Disgruntled Military Veterans

    Of course not to single our veterans because a disgruntled anyone is someone to watch but veterans have training and war time experience which I believe trumps the average joe.

    I honestly can't see how a person can be a liberal & a Christian at the same time. Liberals support killing of innocent babies & support more government control/influence.

    You perhaps noticed that I did not mention Christianity in my above post??? There is a reason.

    40 years ago police agencies were in a snit about all the dope crazed VietNam homicidal vets who were returning home to terrorize local communities. Didn't happen. What happens is that most civilized people who thought they might like a try at killing people and breaking things get it out of their system before they come home.

    So our soldiers serve our country because they enjoy killing?

    What a monumentally stupid supposition.

    Unfortunately, your insulting our soldiers is about par for the course from you. I hope no veterans read your drivel.

    You owe our fine men and women in uniform an apology...not that we expect one.

    Disgusting. :mad:

    For those who want to know the truth the charge is made against returning veterans on page #2 of the report. The term Disgruntled Veterans is included as a section heading on page #7. The text then reverts to returning veterans.

    Liberals continue to swim around in ambiguity so as to only be held to what is convenient at the moment.

    You are aware, though, that folks who believe in the 10th amendment, those against abortion and "immigration reform," are also singled out?

    No amount of defense excuses this anti-military, anti-freedom radical. She is a danger to our freedoms and our republic.

    This is absolutely outrageous. On the one hand, the Obama adminstration refuses to use the word "terroist" when speaking of Islamic militants that want to kill us, and on the other, He defines our military people and those who hold conservative views as "terrorists".

    The adminstration will be remembered for many decades to come.

    peace to you:praying:

    I believe you correctly identified the source of this document. Obama!

    Being pro life is terrorist. Dismembering a baby in its mothers womb or pulling it out to expose its head and then suctioning out its brains are not terrorist acts.

    I agree, just thought I would point out why they aren't called terrorist.
