FBI director tries to warn about home grown Islamic terrorists, without mentioning "Islam"

In Senate testimony, Robert Meuller does everything he can to suggest that he is talking about Islamic extremists. He cites Nidal Hasan's mass murder of American soldiers at Fort Hood. He cites Mumbai attacks planner David Headley. But thanks to Obama's banning of any reference to Islam in relation to terror threats, Meuller is unable to specify that it isn't animal rights activists or disgruntled taxpayers who he is calling "an equally serious threat" as al Qaeda. He can only describe the danger as "US-born extremists," of no particular persuasion.

Not allowed to name the enemy, Meuller sounds like Ray Charles telling Stevie Wonder how to steer the car:
"These terrorist threats are diverse, far-reaching and ever-changing, and to combat these threats, the FBI must sustain our overseas contingency operations and engage our intelligence and law enforcement partners both here at home and abroad," he said.
This is just the tip of the iceberg. This intentionally stripped out language is how our intelligence analysts are now reduced to talking to each other internally as they try to conduct business, otherwise they'll get fired. They are commanded to turn a blind eye to Obama's relentless favoritism for everything Islamic, including Islamic terrorists, who can no longer be tracked as such. Mueller's tongue-tied testimony is a glimpse of the barriers that Obama is putting in the way of daily intelligence operations.

President Clinton gave us Jamie Gorelick's "wall of separation" between intelligence and law enforcement. Obama has found an even more effective way to hamper national security: a wall of separation between each agent's brain and his mouth.

UPDATE: Asked for clarification, an FBI spokesman now claims that Mueller was not just talking about Islamic extremists when he said that home-grown threats pose as much of a threat as al Qaeda:
An FBI spokesman said Friday that Mueller was referring to right-wing extremist groups and anti-government militias, as well as American Islamists, in his testimony to the Senate committee that must approve the FBI’s $8.3 billion budget.
Do they really believe this foul-minded statement, a la President Clinton, who now repeats his disgusting charge (ibid) that Timothy McVeigh was inspired by Rush Limbaugh? Or are they required to make their terror warning general in order to abide by Obama's command that executive branch employees not implicate Islamic extremism?

All this vague threat crap is dhimmitude.

Anyone who feels intimidated by these verbal restrictions should resign.
