Political correctness has led the U.S. government to ignore the growing threat of Muslim-Americans radicalized by the violent Islamist extremist ideology promulgated by al Qaeda and its affiliates, according to a shocking report released by the House Committee on Homeland Security.
As a result, the terrorist threat to military communities is "severe and on the rise" while political correctness continues to stifle the military's ability to effectively understand and counter the threat. In fact, the report actually states that the Obama Administration has chosen political correctness over accurately labeling and identifying certain terrorist attacks appropriately, even denying Purple Hearts medals to killed and wounded troops in domestic terror attacks.
The scathing report is the result of a heated series of committee hearings on the taboo issue of Islamic radicalization in the United States, a subject that the administration evidently fears will alienate Muslims. The bottom line is that al Qaeda is using U.S.-based Muslim radicals to plan mass casualty attacks. "Homegrown radicalization is now the vanguard of al Qaeda's strategy to continue attacking the United States and its allies," congressional investigators found.
