Next Big Terror Threat - Right Wing Militia's in USA

During 9/11 and for a couple years after, I was a TV Terrorism expert for a Houston TV station. Some of those videos are on YouTube, dating back to my first appearance as a Middle East expert during the first Gulf War in 1991.

Today, it appears that our biggest terror threat is not from Al Qaida - but more likely from an extremist right wing militia right here in the USA as discussed in this article.

Why do I think so? Because since the election of a black President these groups have mushroomed - to the point of being very much like the situation when President Clinton was in office.  Al Qaida members can't get here without a visa. Despite there being millions of Muslims in the U.S. we have not had any significant terror attacks.

However, right wing groups have both the extremism and access to weapons and bomb making material to launch an attack, possibly against a government entity.

Add to that volatile mix a recession and he gun control issues that have emerged from the Sandy Hook shooting.

Stay tuned. As Pogo once said: "We have met the enemy and he is us."

Or more accurately: "we have met the enemy and he is our neighbor with a gun and a grudge." With Fox News inventing outlandish stories and the Internet feeding even more hysteria, sooner or later some American nut who wants to "take back America" will act out.  They want to take us back to the dark ages, of racism and violence.

 It's a matter of time...and if it does Fox News will have blood on its hands for feeding the flames.
