It only points out that it can be linked to some forms of extremism, it points out that extremist groups look at recruiting military members because of they're knowledge of war and military tactics etc, .

    Your assertion that they are being labeled a "primary threat" is unfounded. One memo that mentions it does not back up your crazy claim.
    Really?

    From the first damned page of the report -
    The possible passage of new restrictions on firearms and the return of military veterans facing significant challenges reintegrating into their communities could lead to the potential emergence of terrorist groups or lone wolf extremistscapable of carrying out violent attacks.
    How much more "primary" would you like to see?

    If all this is true that is simply gross and pathetic.

    I have no problem with the TSA but i do have a problem with some of the piss poor agents that work for them and don't know their head for the asshole.

    It's only pointing out that it's a possibility. Are you arguing that it's impossible? No where does it argue they are a primary threat. It only mentions that it's something to look out for, and it gives past examples of it happening.

    This was a report that began under the Bush administration before Janet Napolitano even served as HSS. The best of your knowledge isn't very good apparently. At no point has she ever called them a primary threat. Please source a direct quote if you'd like to continue that argument.

    It's possible for a terrorist attack to come from pretty much anywhere including left wing loons who decide to bomb police stations and the Pentagon....but I notice that such groups are not part of Madame Janet's memo.

    If they have no issue treating an obvious "friendly" this way, imagine what they'd have no issue with when it came to YOU.

    Guess how DHS defines who is a terrorist now
    Two weeks before the U.S. Department of Homeland Security penned its controversial report warning against “right-wing extremists” in the United States, it generated a memo defining dozens of additional groups – animal rights activists, black separatists, tax protesters, even worshippers of the Norse god Odin – as potential “threats.”
    Read more at Guess how DHS defines who is a terrorist now
    They have lots of memo's about the possibility of lots of different threats. Does that mean they consider all of them "primary threats"? You are only focusing in on one memo in order to prove your deluded theory that the government, and more importantly Obama and "madame janet" hate veterans. You're wrong, and laughable so.

    TSA draws attention for amputeesí screening - Abstract

    I can't imagine what the hell these people were thinking, especially not stepping up to help this guy stand and so forth!!
    This is out of control government, many of y'all applauded it. This is the natural consequence when government no longer has to abide by our rights and human dignity. Why is anyone surprised? Also, it ain't gonna stop here. The longer we allow this to continue, the worse it's going to get. And there will be a nonzero number of idiots, cowards, and authoritarians calling for more.

    Living free ain't easy, people seem to forget this.

    Well if they "hated us for our freedom" then they have won. But mostly it's government's win over our rights, liberties, human dignity, and self worth.
