Funny how the first real reported dirty bomb threat came from a white non-Muslim U.S. citizen

That sound you hear is that of wingnuts' brains misfiring due to an excess of cognitive dissonance:
Trust fund millionaire James G. Cummings, an American Nazi sympathizer from Maine who was slain by his wife Amber in December, allegedly had the radioactive components necessary to construct a "dirty bomb," a newly released threat analysis report states.

The man, allegedly furious over the election of President Obama, purchased depleted uranium over the Internet from an American company.

"According to an FBI field intelligence report from the Washington Regional Threat and Analysis Center posted online by WikiLeaks, an organization that posts leaked documents, an investigation into the case revealed that radioactive materials were removed from Cummings’ home after his shooting death on Dec. 9," reported the Bangor Daily News.

"Amber (Cummings) indicated James was very upset with Barack Obama being elected President," reported the Washington Regional Threat and Analysis Center (PDF link). "She indicated James had been in contact with 'white supremacist group(s).' Amber also indicated James mixed chemicals in the kitchen sink at their residence and had mentioned 'dirty bombs.'"

"Also found was literature on how to build 'dirty bombs' and information about cesium-137, strontium-90 and cobalt-60, radioactive materials," said the Bangor Daily. "The FBI report also stated there was evidence linking James Cummings to white supremacist groups. This would seem to confirm observations by local tradesmen who worked at the Cummings home that he was an ardent admirer of Adolf Hitler and had a collection of Nazi memorabilia around the house, including a prominently displayed flag with swastika. Cummings claimed to have pieces of Hitler’s personal silverware and place settings, painter Mike Robbins said a few days after the shooting."

For eight years we heard nonstop about "the terrorist threat" while Eric Rudolph ran free from one Southern safe house to another. Right-wing American terrorists have been allowed to run rampant through this country while any woman in a headscarf and any man with a name that "sounds middle-eastern" is subject to search and questioning. This is a white multimillionaire working on a dirty bomb -- and no one in George W. Bush's crackerjack homeland security apparatus even saw him on the radar.

And then you have so-called Liberals like Bill Maher who say racial profiling is necessary and that if we don't do it we're just blindly politically correct.

There's a right-wing nut out there, just waiting for a catalyst. And with the bad economy, he's getting what he wanted.

You don't even have to have a headscarf. I've got a WASPy last name -- and the same first name as a million Muslimas -- and I'm blue-eyed and nothing approaching brown, and every time I travel to the US, they always haul me out of line for extra security scrutiny.

My actual first name is one that's common among all the Abrahamic religions, but the spelling I use is most common among Muslimas. I'm not Muslim, and I was born to nominally Christian parents who chose a more uncommon spelling of a common name...

Heh, heh, heh. We pay the idiots at Homeland Non-Security. High paying welfare jobs for the competence challenged. Heh, heh, heh.

Cannot track shipments of fissionable materials bought over the Internet.

Note: No one knew anything until his wife killed him. No one.

Give that woman a free pardon, a huge annual pension and the highest American medal for doing something spectacular for her fellow citizens. I do not care why she killed him.
