The FBI’s Islamic Terrorism Denial

by Robert Spencer

The Washington Free Beacon revealed Friday that “the FBI’s most recent national threat assessment for domestic terrorism makes no reference to Islamist terror threats, despite last year’s Boston Marathon bombing and the 2009 Fort Hood shooting—both carried out by radical Muslim Americans.” Instead, the threat assessment focused on eight types of groups: “anti-government militia groups and white supremacy extremists, along with ‘sovereign citizen’ nationalists, and anarchists,” along with “violent animal rights and environmentalist extremists, black separatists, anti- and pro-abortion activists, and Puerto Rican nationalists.”

The FBI focus on “anti-government militia groups and white supremacy extremists, along with ‘sovereign citizen’ nationalists, and anarchists” is ominous, for while there are indeed such people, the Obama Administration has already shown a disturbing tendency to lump all of its opponents into such categories, with scant concern for accuracy, and to be willing to use the IRS and the courts effectively to criminalize opposition to its agenda. Some such groups may indeed be violent and dangerous, but they’re nothing compared to the global character of jihad terrorism – and yet jihad terrorism didn’t even make the FBI list.

Meanwhile, it is comforting to know that the FBI is on watch against Puerto Rican nationalists: tonight at the Blair House, President Truman can rest easy. But in this, the FBI’s latest national threat assessment shows that the Obama Administration’s fog of denial and willful ignorance about the jihad threat is thicker than ever. To be warning about Puerto Rican nationalists while Islamic jihadists are increasingly aggressive, assertive and violent around the world is tantamount to warning about slow waiters on the Titanic.

Just look at some recent events: Fort Bliss in El Paso, Texas beefed up security for the Labor Day weekend in response to credible threats from Puerto Rican nationalists to enter the country from Mexico and stage a terror attack here. In Chicago, a man who had a Puerto Rican flag on his car threatened police with a bomb. Puerto Rican nationalists tweeted: “we are in your state/ we are in your cities / we are in your streets.  You are our goals anywhere,” and “we are here #america near our #target sooooooooooooon.” Just before beheading an American journalist, Puerto Rican nationalists sent a message to his family containing more threats: “Government and citizens alike!…We will not stop untill [sic] we quench our thirst for your blood.”…
