Crain’s: Joe Walsh is Mirror Image of the Terrorist Threat to Ameria
This from Rep. Joe Walsh
The threat that radical Islam poses to American families and our way of life is not anything new. It is a real threat. The Committee on Homeland Security, of which I am a member, has held five hearings that examined the threat of Muslim radicalization, especially radicalization within the Muslim-American community. Members of the Committee are not alone in this—even Attorney General Holder and Janet Napolitano of the Obama Administration have warned about the dangers of radical Islam.
From Greg Hinz in Crain’s
Mr. Walsh and I agree there is a threat. In part, it does come from terrorist groups, some of them Muslim, that are worth watching.
But how about angry, big-talking, gun-loving guys who are eager to victimize whole categories of millions of Americans for apparent political gain, but surely will claim innocence of attacks on those same groups.
So, congressman, next time you want to see someone who really is worth keeping an eye on, look in the mirror.
This from Bill Baar
CBS last year on Chicago’s David Headley,
David Headley, the Pakistani-American man who helped plan the November 2008 terrorist attacks in Mumbai, India, today expressed remorse for his involvement in those attacks for the first time publicly.
Headley, of Chicago, is the government’s star witness at the trial of Tahawwur Rana, who is charged with providing material support to Lashkar-e-Tayyiba, the terrorist group behind the Mumbai attacks. Rana allegedly supported Headley’s operational planning for the attacks by letting him use his immigration business as a front for Headley’s time in Mumbai.
In court today, an attorney representing Rana asked Headley if he was still proud of his actions. Headley told the jury, “No.”
Under previous questioning by prosecutors in the case, Headley said he was initially very pleased with the results of the attacks that left 164 people dead including six Americans.
The evidence of Chicago’s links with terror stare us in the face. Joe Walsh perfectly right to point it out. The only thing missing is it’s Chicago’s Muslim community most at risk. There kids are the targets for recruitment by the likes of Headley.
