Last Wednesday, I Tweeted live during the 4th of Chairman Pete King’s hearings on radical Islam in our nation, entitled “Homegrown Terrorism: The Threat to Military Communities Inside the United States.” Last week’s hearing, was slightly different from the previous three, in that it was a JOINT hearing convened by both the House Homeland Security Committee and the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee.

To accompany the hearing, Chairman King released a Congressional Majority Investigative Report, also entitled, “Homegrown Terrorism: The Threat to Military Communities inside the United States.” The report offers numerous details on the dangers faced by our military and their families on U.S. soil, noting,

 

“The Department of Defense considers the U.S. Homeland the most dangerous place for a G.I. outside of foreign warzones – and the top threat they face here is from violent Islamist extremists. While our troops at overseas bases train their weapons outward to prevent armed enemies from getting “inside the wire,” one way militant Islamists are penetrating our defenses is through enlistment in the U.S. Armed Forces. A significant and growing number of military personnel, such as alleged Fort Hood mass murderer Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, pose a serious danger to their brothers and sisters in arms who wear the same uniform.”


Last week’s hearing covered a great deal of ground, which you can find out by downloading my more detailed report HERE. For the remainder of this e-mail, however, I want to focus on one particular exchange that you just HAVE to see to believe.

At one point during the discussion, Congressman Dan Lungren (R-CA/3
rd) asked witness Paul Stockton (Assistant Secretary of Defense for Homeland Defense and America’s Security Affairs, Office of Undersecretary of Defense for Policy, Department of Defense) if we are at war with violent Islamist extremism.

A simple question, requiring a simple answer…right?

Wrong.

Click HERE to watch this exchange in its entirety. Mr. Stockton’s responses would be downright comedic if they didn’t tragically demonstrate the shocking denial of jihadism at our highest levels of our government.
