Only 3 days after the terrorist attack at Fort Hood, Janet Napolitano was already gearing up the Homeland Security Department to prevent further attacks - on Muslims.
Homeland chief warns against anti-Muslim backlash
ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates — The U.S. Homeland Security secretary says she is working to prevent a possible wave of anti-Muslim sentiment after the shootings at Fort Hood in Texas.
Janet Napolitano says her agency is working with groups across the United States to try to deflect any backlash against American Muslims following Thursday's rampage by Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, a Muslim who reportedly expressed growing dismay over the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The shootings left 13 people dead and 29 wounded.
Napolitano was in the United Arab Emirates on Sunday for talks with security officials and a meeting with women university students in Abu Dhabi.
Ignoring the fact that we just had an attack by a Muslim against American interests in the US which looks a lot like terrorism, where is the evidence that we have a significant problem with anti-Muslim attacks in the US?
Another good question to ask is why is she in the United Arab Emirates when we just had a terrorist attack here in the United States last Thursday? Meeting with UAE security officials. Shouldn't she be here doing her job? Meeting with US security officials?
In my mind, her going to a foreign country, a Muslim country at that, after a terrorist attack at a US military base by what appears to be a Muslim extremist and promising to defend Muslims borders on sedition.
Of course, I'm just a paranoid, far-right, ultra-conservative just out to get Obama. There's nothing to worry about here in the United States. The government is working to protect us. Were safe.

Despite ban, Holder to speak to CAIR-linked group
Attorney General Eric Holder has agreed to give a keynote speech next week to a Michigan group which includes the local branch of the Council on American-Islamic Relations even though the FBI has formally severed contacts with the controversial Muslim civil rights organization
An FBI spokeswoman confirmed that the FBI’s Special Agent-in-Charge in Detroit, Andy Arena, will serve as co-chair for the Nov. 19 dinner.
I don't get it. I almost have to believe our government has made a conscious decision to side with the terrorists over the United States.
