Arlington Road, deja vu all over again...

[From an Aug. 8, 2012 posting] "Two national security experts said in a Wednesday analysis on the CNN website that information collected since Sept. 11, 2011, suggests that home-grown U.S. militants pose a greater threat to acquire and use WMD materials than foreign terrorists (see GSN, June 22).
"After 9/11, there was great concern that al-Qaida or an allied group would launch a terrorist attack involving chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear (CBRN) weapons. But in the past decade, there is no evidence that jihadist extremists in the United States have acquired or attempted to acquire material to construct CBRN weapons," according to Peter Bergen and Jennifer Rowland, both of the Washington-based New America Foundation.
"By contrast, 11 right-wing and left-wing extremists have managed to acquire CBRN material that they planned to use against the public, government employees or both," they added in the piece that cited figures from database established by their organization." [emphasis added]

Great.  And I thought the neighbors were such nice people...

The rest is here.
