To think that our brave men and women sign up to defend their country from the enemy, and the enemy may be right beside him.

FBI INVESTIGATING OVER 100 JIHADISTS IN MILITARY
Infiltration. One can only imagine how really bad it is, if this is what the dhimmified FBI is owning up to. Sen. Joseph Lieberman, who co-chaired aon internal threats to the military, said, "I was surprised and struck , they were larger than I expected." Actually, I suspect they are much higher. They are only looking at the hot threats, soon to be operational.
I suppose we can expect a lawsuit from Hamas-CAIR to stop these "islamophobic" investigations. The NYPD counter terror measures are under Islamic supremacist attack, so why not this?
Someone better warn Obama that there's a whole helluva lot of "workplace violence."
As Robert Spencer points out:

It would be better for hundreds or thousands die in a jihad attack by one of these Muslims in the military than for military officials to commit an act of "Islamophobia." Death (other peoples') before political incorrectness! "FBI Tracking 100 Suspected Extremists In Military," by Dina Temple-Raston for NPR, June 25 (thanks to Holly):The FBI has conducted more than 100 investigations into suspected Islamic extremists within the military, NPR has learned. About a dozen of those cases are considered serious.That probably means that the other 88 and more include Muslims in the military who said or wrote something pro-jihad or anti-American, but who don't seem to bean attack or communicating with "dangerous individuals" right now. What they might do tomorrow is anybody's guess.About A Dozen Cases Face Full Investigation NPR (hat tip Armaros)The FBI has conducted more than 100 investigations into suspected Islamic extremists within the military, NPR has learned. About a dozen of those cases are considered serious.Officials define that as a case requiring a formal investigation to gather information against suspects who appear to have demonstrated a strong intent to attack military targets. This is the first time the figures have been publicly disclosed.The FBI and Department of Defense call these cases "insider threats." They include not just active and reserve military personnel but also individuals who have access to military facilities such as and close family members with dependent ID cards.Officials would not provide details about the cases and the FBI would not confirm the numbers, but they did say that cases seen as serious could include, among others things, suspects who seem to be planning an attack or were in touch with "dangerous individuals" who were goading them to attack.Details Revealed At Closed Congressional HearingThe FBI and the Department of Defense declined to discuss the figures on the record, but three sources with direct knowledge confirmed that the numbers were revealed in a closed session of a House-Senate committee hearing in December. The FBI also declined to say whether it has compiled more up-to-date figures since that time."I was surprised and struck by the numbers; they were larger than I expected," Sen. Joseph Lieberman, an independent from Connecticut and chairman of the Senate Committee on, told NPR. He stopped short of confirming the numbers."I know one can say that as a percentage of the millions of people in active military service or working with contractors, the numbers you talk about are a small percentage of the total, but the reality is it only took one man, Nidal Hasan, to kill 13 people at Fort Hood and injure a lot more," Lieberman said.Hasan was an Army major at Fort Hood in Texas who is charged with opening fire onin the base's processing center in November 2009. The rampage is considered the most serious terrorist attack on U.S. soil since the Sept. 11 attacks.Prosecutors say Hasan had been in touch with an American-born radical imam, Anwar al-Awlaki, to ask for spiritual guidance ahead of the shooting; and Awlaki is said to have blessed it. Awlaki was killed in a drone attack in Yemen last year.Investigators also say Hasan had been displaying signs of increasing radicalization before the shooting took place, but the behavior had not been properly reported. Hasan's court-martial is set to begin on Aug. 20, and he faces the death penalty.The FBI compiled its tally of Islamic extremist cases in the military late last year for a joint hearing that Lieberman co-chaired. The hearing was looking at possible threats to military communities inside the United States, and the number of cases was revealed at that time.About A Dozen Cases Face Full InvestigationThe FBI typically divides investigations into three categories: assessment, preliminary investigations, and then full investigations in which agents have enough evidence to justify using all the investigative tools at their disposal. As of last December, there were a dozen cases in that last category."This number speaks not only to the reality that there is a problem of violent Islamic extremists in the military, but also that the Department of Defense and the FBI since the Nidal Hassan case are working much more closely together," said Lieberman.
