Leading Democrat says he’s ‘dumbfounded’
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says she was briefed before the release of a controversial “intelligence assessment” and that she stands by the report, which lists returning veterans, Second Amendment, and pro-life supporters among terrorist risks to the United States.
You read that correctly!
But the top House Democrat with oversight of the Department of Homeland Security said in a letter to Ms. Napolitano that he was “dumbfounded” that such a report would be issued.
“This report appears to raise significant issues involving the privacy and civil liberties of many Americans — including war veterans,” said Rep. Bennie Thompson of Mississippi, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, in his letter sent to Napolitano.
The letter was representative of a public furor over the nine-page document since its release. The Washington Times carries the complete report here.
