From the surprising source of NPR–National Palestinian Radio, there’s this exclusive story that the FBI has been tracking “100 Muslim extremists” in the U.S. military. They consider 12 of the cases as serious. Huh? So, the other 88 are extremists, but “not serious”?! And you can bet there are more than 100. Probably more than 1,000. But why are they in the U.S. Armed Forces in the first place and why haven’t they been dishonorably discharged? I always hate listening to the muted, snooty voices of the NPR hags, who always sound like they are murmuring between sips of organic locavore soy milk and bites of cheese made from recycled newspapers and silk navel lint hand-crafted by a lacto-ovo Muslim differently-abled lesbians in the Himalayas. But listen to the audio of the report. And don’t worry . . . because Famous But Incompetent is on the case!
The FBI has conducted more than 100 investigations into suspected Islamic extremists within the military, NPR has learned. About a dozen of those cases are considered serious.
Officials define that as a case requiring a formal investigation to gather information against suspects who appear to have demonstrated a strong intent to attack military targets. This is the first time the figures have been publicly disclosed.
The FBI and Department of Defense call these cases “insider threats.” They include not just active and reserve military personnel but also individuals who have access to military facilities such as contractors and close family members with dependent ID cards.
Officials would not provide details about the cases and the FBI would not confirm the numbers, but they did say that cases seen as serious could include, among others things, suspects who seem to be planning an attack or were in touch with “dangerous individuals” who were goading them to attack.
The FBI and the Department of Defense declined to discuss the figures on the record, but three sources with direct knowledge confirmed that the numbers were revealed in a closed session of a House-Senate committee hearing in December. The FBI also declined to say whether it has compiled more up-to-date figures since that time.
Don’t listen to the NPR downplaying of this as an FBI “over-reaction.” In fact, just the opposite. Dream on if you think the FBI or anyone else is doing anything about these people. They knew about Nidal Malik Hasan and didn’t care until he snuffed out 13 lives. That’s how they operate with Islamic extremists.
If this were the Muslim world and they found pro-Western people in their ranks, those people would long ago have been chopped up into pieces and become dinner for camels.
