Thom Hartmann: Are we in denial about Domestic Terrorism?
Bryan Fischer, American Family Association. In the wake of the Norway shootings - what is the Department of Homeland Security doing to keep America safe from domestic terror threats? Turns out...not much. Why? Because they only have one guy in the ENTIRE Department of Homeland Security in charge of domestic terrorism - just one guy! After right-wingers blasted a 2009 DHS report that warned of the threat of domestic terror - DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano caved - and downsized the entire domestic terrorism unit until there was just one guy left - again - just one guy overseeing all the domestic terror threats in the country. Meanwhile - everyone else at DHS is looking into Islamic terror threats which doesn't make sense according to the FBI's own data about terrorism in the United States.
