Not only the Islamic extremists to worry about it seems, some home grown-nuts too.
So far, post Oklahoma plots have been foiled, but you know how these people can be, they won't like all the attention being focused (obviously post Sept 11th) on Mid East/Islamic extremism.

As every country does, the U.S. has it share of nuts cases. Look at the ELF and ALF. They're a prime example of domestic terrorists.

Yeah, I posted about this incident three weeks ago. Nice to see that's it's finally being picked up by some of the major news outlets. (It was in the LA Times recently, too.)

The point is, L-188, that while these people were caught it's time the US stopped looking at every foreigner, particularly those from Middle Eastern origin as potential threats to the US, when there is clearly a problem here in the US as well. To some, even John Ashcroft and Donald Rumsfeld are too "left" for certain tastes and are crazy enough to try and show that through violence.

Well yes, those three got caught, but if you read the article it states

The conspirators - rightwing extremists who were caught with forged identity passes to the United Nations and the Pentagon, and a variety of racist and anti-government pamphlets - have refused to cooperate with investigators, who believe others involved in the plot may still be at large.

And also:

A series of anthrax letter attacks which took place in the weeks after September 11 2001 are also thought by FBI investigators to have been the work of an American fanatic. The case has not yet been solved and has similarly been largely forgotten.

So yeah-- those three got caught. How many other domestic terrorists are out there and are we spending as much time looking for them as we are for the international terrorists? I think we need to have an equal focus on BOTH international and domestic terrorists. I think that is the point some of us are trying to make.

And btw,it may be that law enforcement officials ARE equally focusing on both international and domestic terrorists, but the media certainly isn't.
