Feds: Watch Out for Radicalized Individuals!

The Department of Homeland Security has warned landlords in the DC area “to be looking out for the radicalized individual,” according to Peggy Jeffers, of the Apartment and Office Building Association of Metropolitan Washington Inc. DHS sent out the warning to apartment and building managers on Sunday evening, the same time that Obama announced Osama’s demise.

What is DHS’s definition of “radicalized”?

Would that include anyone who thinks that the government is lying about the death of Osama?

The feds have apparently already admitted that the statements about Osama being armed may have been false, as was the claim about him using his wife as a human shield. Glenn Greenwald has a good summary of the initial claims that have been admitted to be false thus far.

The White House admitted this afternoon that its first story needed work. The New York Times slug on this story is priceless: “White House Corrects Bin Laden Narrative.”

Does a person need to keep up with all the government “corrections” in order to be labeled “radicalized”? Or can continuing to belief the initial assertions even after the government admits they were false – would that be radical?

    The neocons are having a grand time, using this event to “prove” that all of the worst acts of the “War On Terror” are hereby justified. Secret prisons, torture, the invasion of Iraq, they all worked!

    Heh. I’m sure we’ll hear soon about the part that the glorious “patriot” act had to play. I wonder if they’ll get in a plug for the TSA too?

    The only certainty is that the BS will get deeper.

    Some fun comments on Facebook on this thread –

    Bob Williams Wag the dog, Obomb’em, wag the dog – he was killed ten years ago!

    D Frank Robinson Actually, I think ‘wag the corpse’ would be more accurate.

    Rogan McIntyre Yes. And if you don’t believe in the outrageous claims that have now been proven to be junk science – global warming, that you should be taxed or put in prison. That’s Cass Sunstein for you.

    Brian Bowman I hear the body they buried at sea tested positive for freezer burn.

    Jim Bovard Brian, that’s a hoot!

    Powell Gammill I already reported you to Big Sis. By the way you are 3 days behind in your rent. Hurry up with the check before they seize your accounts.

    Jim Bovard Ya, but the govt. is very slow in foreclosing, so I’m not worried.

    Give em a break. Remember when ya’ll went obsessed over the Beatles ? Heavy breathing ?

    A big giant victory over an insignificant small old man (unarmed too). A platoon of terrified sailors armed with M4’s (with night vision scopes) shoots Bin Laden. He was always seen with his AK-47. It must have been terrifying to meet up with him in his bedroom.

    They took his hard drive. I wonder what his username is ?
