Plans To Fight Terrorism At Home

In the U.S., and many other countries, it depends how 'terrorist' are defined!! Think little to nothing done as to certain corporate funded and media hyped groups like say the teabaggers {like flying personal planes into an IRS building}, then think what is done, and has been for decades, as to those doing civil disobedience {civil means just that 'civil'} like war policies protesters, now ows, civil rights, labor groups, the list is so long, and not only as to actions against but the verbal from all sectors of this society and country!

Officials Detail Plans To Fight Terrorism At Home
December 8, 2011 - The White House will unveil a broad, new strategy Thursday aimed at battling homegrown terrorism in the U.S. The program aims to empower communities by teaching local officials to recognize violent extremism and see the threat as a public safety issue, like the battle against gangs and drugs.

The plan comes as the terrorism threat against the U.S. continues to evolve. All eyes used to be trained on al-Qaida in Pakistan. But more recently the attacks have come from violent extremists here in the U.S. who picked up radical ideas from the Internet. Those plots, though less spectacular, are the ones the Obama administration is trying to fend off.

"What we have to do is be prepared for these different types of approaches that al-Qaida is pursuing," John Brennan, Obama's chief counterterrorism adviser, told NPR in an interview about the plan. "The large attacks, the small attacks, the groups that are operating together and the individuals who may be vulnerable to these types of entreaties."
