Holder: Holding Hands Rather Than Stopping Future Attacks

So after Fort Hood, what did AG Holder do? Focus on the agencies failure to again connect the dots regarding the definitley strange activity of Major jihadi Hassan?

Nope, instead:
About 24 hours after hearing of the shootings at Ft. Hood, Texas, federal officials were on the phone with Imad Hamad, the Dearborn-based director with the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee. Their goal: to check for any backlash against local Arab Americans, Muslims and other minorities.

The swift actions were part of a little-known program called the Incident Community Coordination Team, created to ensure open dialogue between law enforcement and minority communities during high-profile incidents.

How about instead of rushing off and kissing terrorist supporters backsides here in Detroit and investing time and money against a non-existent "backlash" you properly screened against potential jihadis at the outset and you know prevented the "lash" in the first place?

Maybe open a federal investigation into Hassan's enablers? if you have to treat this as solely a law-enforcement problem rather than terrorism how about charging his Imam and others who supported him under RICO or other conspiracy charges hmm?

Not like there was no clue that Major Hassan wasn't exactly on the straight and patriotic narrow, now was there? Do all US Army majors do "research" by emailing known Al Qaeda operatives (and coincidentally Imams?)

Instead as related in the Detroit Free Press Holder and Obama is all about political correctness over protecting Americans:
Reaching out to Arab Americans and Muslims, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder strongly declared in a Detroit speech Thursday night that their full rights must be protected while the country battles security threats.

“We are committed to protecting the rights of all Americans, including Muslims,” Holder told a crowd of hundreds at the Detroit Marriot in the Renaissance Center. “This is not blind adherence to political correctness. It is devotion to our founding documents.”

In recent days, conservatives have assailed the Obama administration for what it sees as a political correctness in dealing with the issue of Islamic extremism.

No kidding, pretending that there is not a serious contingent of Muslims on America that both support terrorism in the name of Islam and are in favor of attacks on Americans is simply blindness brguht on by both political correctness and a desire to return to the blissful days of September 10th.

The current Ultra-Low Intensity Conflict by Muslims against Americans here continues: an attack here, an attack there, plausible denial of any connection or unifying force behind these attacks save all the attackers were adherents of Islam and did so in the name of Islam as much as everyone tries to ignore that or pretend it is incidental to their actions.

Until we wake up and realize that while we're not at war with Islam, a solid portion of Islam is at war with us and take appropriate measures, these attacks will continue as there is no repercussion or deterrent to their continued attacks.
