I thought we were fighting them there so we don't have to fight them here

Weren't we in Iraq so that terrorists wouldn't follow us home like so many lost puppies? Well, now that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed has confessed to involvement in every major terrorist plot of the last 15 years, the Global War on Terror is over, right? So it's time to ratchet up the Fear Factor right here at home:

The Homeland Security Department said Wednesday it has created a unit to combat the threat posed by "homegrown terrorists" — citizens or legal residents who plot attacks from inside the nation's borders.

"This phenomenon presents a real and serious challenge to our nation," Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff told a Senate panel.

Somehow I have a feeling this new unit is going to be focusing more on peace groups and registered Democrats than on homegrown Islamic terrorists. And I also somehow think that women's health clinic bombers will be exempt from examination entirely.
