Napolitano: Troops not terrorists; they’re idiots who need our protection.

I was reading this at Gateway Pundit’s and it clicked:
But Secretary Janet Napolitano added that “a number of groups far too numerous to mention” want to commit domestic terrorism attacks and are looking for new recruits.
She told a cable news network the warning report that went out to American law enforcement agencies was consistent with reports that were issued before.
“Here is the important point. The report is not saying that veterans are extremists. Far from it. What it is saying is returning veterans are targets of right-wing extremist groups that are trying to recruit those to commit violent acts within the country. We want to do all we can to prevent that,” she said.
So it’s a variation on the standard leftist theme that anyone stupid enough to sign up for the military is stupid enough to do anything. As we all know, soldiers are poor and only joined for the money, they are babies, and certainly not possessed of as good judgment as that of teenage girls seeking abortion. So with these facts in mind, instead of focusing on the right-wing extremist groups which are doing the recruiting, DHS wants “to do all they can to prevent” those helpless soldiers from being recruited again. I mean, if they fell for it once… those suckers!
