The Department of Homeland Security issued a new intelligence report Tuesday, titled “Insider Threat to Utilities,” outlining the possibility of terrorist attacks in the form of internal sabotage at a major utility facility. We know that al-Qa’ida is aiming to hit the U.S. again on the coming tenth anniversary of 9/11, and an attack on our infrastructure is high on their list. According to DHS, “violent extremists have, in fact, obtained insider positions,” and “outsiders have attempted to solicit utility-sector employees” to carry out damaging physical and cyber attacks.Furthermore, the DHS report says, “Based on the reliable reporting of previous incidents, we have high confidence in our judgment that insiders and their actions pose a significant threat to the infrastructure and information systems of U.S. facilities. Past events and reporting also provide high confidence in our judgment that insider information on sites, infrastructure, networks, and personnel is valuable to our adversaries and may increase the impact of any attack on the utilities infrastructure.”DHS officials may be aware of this threat and working to thwart it, but they are also appallingly politically correct. A recent training video depicts suspected terrorists as average, middle-aged white men. In fact, as the narrator makes clear, ethnicity, age and religion should play no role in judging acts of terrorism. DHS already vilified conservatives in 2009 with its report, “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment.” So which is it? Is DHS battling Islamist jihadis or merely smearing “rightwing” Americans?
