The Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, is in the United Arab Emirates. She reacts to the massacre at Fort Hood, in the process shedding light on what the Obama administration means by “homeland security”:
ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates — The U.S. Homeland Security secretary says she is working to prevent a possible wave of anti-Muslim sentiment after the shootings at Fort Hood in Texas.
Janet Napolitano says her agency is working with groups across the United States to try to deflect any backlash against American Muslims following Thursday’s rampage by Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, a Muslim who reportedly expressed growing dismay over the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The Arabs must think we are stark, raving mad–a proposition that, as to the administration, is hard to argue with.
