War on Terror

Eric Holder's Greatest Fear

Reigniting Bush-era fears about domestic terrorism, Attorney General Eric Holder told ABC News that recent reports about homegrown jihadis are “particularly troubling.” Holder said that people who are "leaving this country and going to different parts of the world and then coming back, all, again, in aim of doing harm to the American people is a great concern." He's not just whistling Dixie either: In the news of late have been the arrests of members of an alleged North Carolina terror group. A New York man is being charged of training with al Qaeda to help attack U.S. forces. The Obama administration has, up to this point, taken a different path than its predecessor by choosing not to highlight domestic terrorism as a leading threat to American security.
