Politicizing Homeland Security. Again.

The LA Times has a story on HS's report of possible domestic terrorist groups:

A recent internal Homeland Security document lists the Animal Liberation Front and the Earth Liberation Front with a few Islamic groups that could potentially support al-Qaida as domestic terror threats.

The document does not address threats posed by white supremacists, violent militiamen, anti-abortion bombers and other extremists that Rep. Bennie G. Thompson, D-Miss., called "right-wing hate groups."

Uncaging chinchillas? You'd better watch yourself-- that's bad for business.

Bombing federal buildings? (Whistling, looking up in air innocently)
