How Much Is The Department Of Homeland Security In Trouble?

Enough that the Democratic Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee is upset over DHS’s recent report on “right-wing extremism”:

The top House Democrat overseeing the Department of Homeland Security is demanding that officials there explain how and why they wrote and released a controversial report identifying veterans as potential terrorist threats.

Rep. Bennie G. Thompson of Mississippi, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, said in a letter to DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano that he was “dumbfounded” 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,” Mr. Thompson said in the letter sent Tuesday.

Wow, when even Congressional Democrats won’t follow the Obama Administration’s talking points . . .
