Homeland security: Ignoring real threats and heeding false warnings

A federal intelligence note is warning police that an anti-government group's call to remove dozens of sitting governors may encourage others to act out violently.

A group that calls itself the Guardians of the free Republics has a plan to "restore America" by peacefully dismantling parts of the government, according to its website.

. . . Investigators do not see threats of violence in the group's message, but fear the broad call for removing top state officials could inspire others to act out violently.

Foreign nationals from terror supporting nations that have in the past attacked America and Americans will not be "profiled".

But, Americans peacefully advocating government reform and change (sort of like the winning candidate in 2008) "could inspire others to act out violently", and must be watched by federal, state and local law enforcement.

It seems that they're more concerned with political threats than terrorist threats.

P.S. - Where's the ACLU on this one?
