Quote of the Day

In recent years, Americans have learned to live with a new reality: Al Qaeda will try to attack us and politically correct Muslim sympathizers in the U.S. will help them. For example, late yesterday news broke that top Iraqi officials have alerted U.S. and European authorities that Al Qaeda plans to carry out suicide attacks during the Christmas season. The information was obtained from a massive security sweep that captured 73 suspected terrorists in the past two weeks.

"Holiday attacks by Al Qaeda are not new. You no doubt recall the "underwear bomber" who tried to blow up an airliner last Christmas. Already this year, the FBI thwarted an attempt to bomb a Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Portland, Oregon. Not long after that, the FBI busted another jihadi wanna-be who tried to bomb a military recruiting station in Maryland.

There is no doubt that evil men, motivated by their radical Islamic ideology, are trying to murder and maim as many Americans as they can. Now some American Muslim advocacy groups are accusing the FBI of entrapment.

Unbelievably, Attorney General Eric Holder recently met with one of these groups to entertain their "grievances." While Holder held his ground this time, the meeting never should have happened. It was an insult to the professionalism of the men and women charged with defending us.

But that the meeting even took place is a testament to the growing rot of political correctness at the highest levels of government. If it is not stopped, the consequences will be deadly."
