Obama Faces PC Complaints On Terror Plan

WASHINGTON, Aug. 4 (UPI) — The chairman of a U.S. committee on homeland security warned Washington’s new strategy on extremism in the United States might be too politically correct.

U.S. President Barack Obama unveiled a new strategy meant to address violent extremism in the United States.

The plan notes that Washington would be “ill-suited” to meddle in select groups in society were radicalization could take place. “But it can foster partnerships to support communities through its connections to local government, law enforcement,” the plan reads.

U.S. Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, said that while he welcomed the measure, he was worried the president was too delicate in dealing with Muslim-American groups.

“While I certainly support community involvement and initiatives, we must ensure that these do not become politically correct feel-good encounters which ignore the threats posed by dangerous individuals in the community,” he said in a statement.

The new Obama plan is meant to allay concerns that efforts to counter Muslim extremism could provide a recruiting ground for al-Qaida and its affiliates in the United States.
