Former DHS analyst decries agency inattention to right-wing terrorism

Rania Khalek reports on an extensive Southern Povery Law Center interview with former DHS right-wing terror analyst Darryl Johnson, in which he decries the agency's shirking from its investigations against extreme right-wing fundamentalists. Not surprisingly, DHS' terrorism resources are overwhelmingly directed towards fighting Muslim extremism.

But as Anders Brevik demonstrates, horrific attacks are committed regularly by right-wing and other domestic terrorists, quite apart from those perpetrated by Muslims, which only made up six percent of attacks in the US between 1980 and 2005.
