You are right, of course. However, "As if" sounds like Valley Speak, from the Valley of Whatev-ah. It needs to be decontaminated - at least in my mind.

Hugh Fitzgerald, one would think is stating the obvious that this recent uncovering of the Muslim radical’s plot to bomb Fort Dix and kill as many Americans as possible should make all Americans so outraged that they would move the government, if the government was not moved itself to take very drastic and draconian actions to protect Americans from the mortal danger from radical Muslims hiding in America.
As obvious as Fitzgerald’s assumption is, that assumption is obviously wrong for not nearly enough Americans and American government officials are filled with nearly enough outrage to make even a pot boil. Towering infernos of American rage should have been the case in 1979 with the Iranian American Hostage event, with the 1983 murderous attack on the Lebanese barracks killing 271 Americans, the attack on the Cole, and most recently 9/11 which one would have thought would have created a rage within America that still burned out of control and fueled America’s need for vengeance and the utter destruction of all Muslim radicals of all kinds, be they in America or the Muslim Middle East. That includes of course Saudi Arabia, the birthplace for Islamic extremism and a nation that supports the export of that extremism right into the heart of America.
Obvious yes, but obviously that is not the reaction of most Americans.
The reaction in Canada to the arrest of 17 young Muslims, some juveniles in Ontario in June 2006 was probably even more complacent then perhaps the cool controlled anger of only some in America with this recent Fort Dix incident.
Last June, 2006 the 17 who were arrested for conspiring to commit terrorist bombings against public buildings in Canada were Canadians and not recent immigrants or radical Muslims who managed to enter Canada on visitor Visas.
It was reported that these Canadian Muslims became radical Islamists, filled with rage against the West and their own country Canada from digesting the political debates and opinions they were exposed to in their Mosques, organizations, associations and peer groupson as well as what they took in through the Internet. These 17 radicalized Canadian Muslims allegedly managed to hide their true radical Islamic Jihadist beliefs from their friends and family, if one is to believe the word of their friends and family.
Even with the arrest of those l7 Muslim Canadians, the police were at pains to avoid identifying them as Muslims. On that fact coming out, the police then made a point of speaking about having good relations with leaders of the Muslim community. There was a statement however put out by one of those Muslim leaders expressing criticism of the Ontario police for not having warned them that they were about to arrest 17 Muslims on charges of conspiracy to commit terror.
Just what led some Muslim leaders to think that the police had to consult with or warn the Muslim community that it was about to arrest 17 of their members? That question was never raised or dealt with as it should have been.
The obvious question therefore is that since Hugh Fitgerald’s assumed response of unbridled American fury at the revelations of the Fort Dix conspiracy and a dramatic and sudden clamp down on all Muslim immigration and civil rights within America to find these hidden radical Muslims and their terrorist cells is obvious, why are Americans not en masse reacting in the obvious way Fitzgerald assumes they should be reacting?
The other obvious question of course is what would it take to get Americans to react as Fitzgerald believes they should?

The media has focused on the quick wittedness of he Circuit City clerk and not on the failures of our 'refugee resettlement' programs to screen out the Islamist barbarians
Apparently workers doing 'refugee resettlement' programs are not mind readers as you obviously are.
Besides 3 Albanians were illegals, who and how you propose will do their mind reading?
It also appears that those 3 illegal Albanians were smuggled in at ages 1, 3, and 5. Do you think that if you, a mind reader, would have interviewed 1 year old, would have discovered his Jihadi thinking?
