More writing on the wall - Homegrown Terrorists

The media has been buzzing recently about a group of 7 men arrested in Miami for plotting to destroy the Sears tower. For some reason, many of the articles seem to focus on the men being American with some sort of shock and awe.

"How ever could an American not do anything but love their country?" they seem to profess.

Is our collective memory so short that we can't remember back to 1995 when another "homegrown" terrorist bombed the Alfred P. Murrah Building in Oklahoma City?

Do we blithely forget that our good and loving "Pro-Life" activists have blown up abortion clinics?

America may not be the fertile soil for terroists that the mideast is, but to be so ignorant of the fact that our nation has and will produce malcontent extremists is to invite disaster.
