Homeland Security's Double-deal duplicity

Center of Excellence??
Just love those government reports on terrorism!  What I love about them is seeing the new and inventive ways they have of turning their eyes away from reality.  Remember the report on the Fort Hood Massacres?  The one, which IIRC, was about 98 pages long and managed not to mention the word "Islam" even once, even though Nidal had been screaming "Allahu Akhbar" over and over, as he mowed down his fellow soldiers, and after having handed out copies of the Koran.
Now we have a two-fer, a double-deal, if you will, in the latest report from DOHS: Hot Spots of Terrorism and Other Crimes in the United States, 1970 to 2008.
Simply put, there's a double duplicity:
First, the duplicity of lumping "Other crimes" with "Terrorism".  Rather like lumping spiders and monkeys together and saying that you're analysing primate behaviour.
Second: the "fallacy of range". Going back to the 70s for terror, of course you're bringing in the leftist terror of the 70s and 80s.  What we want to know is about the terror of today.  I wrote about this "fallacy of range" in more detail at Terrorists are not Muslims... except for the 94% that are!
Shame on the DOHS, and its alleged "Center of Excellence".  What PC crock!
