Should Congress Probe Muslim Radicalization?

Over on the Fox News web site there is a story about NY Rep. Peter King and the hearing that his Congressional committee is conducting on the radicalization of Muslims in America. There is also an unscientific poll being taken on how the public feels about this and the results, so far, are astounding. As of 1:20 PM today 95.65% of 68,290 votes were in favor of this investigation.

Should Congress Probe Muslim Radicalization?

House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) is holding a controversial hearing Thursday examining the threat posed by radicalized American Muslims. (For more on the King hearings, click here.) Should Congress be investigating Muslim radicalization?

Thank you for voting!

Glad to see a large majority of Americans agree with this. Since the first bombing of the World Trade Center back in 1993, virtually all of the acts of terrorism committed or attempted in America have been perpetrated by Muslims. The asinine attitude of Political Correctness has stood in the way of our government and news media from labeling these acts for what they are. It is time that our government looked into what is causing it.
The Fox News story contains this piece of advanced testimony from Martin Bledsoe, the father of one of those radicalized Muslims.
Melvin Bledsoe, whose son allegedly attacked an Army recruiting center in Arkansas, said in written testimony -- which Fox News has seen -- that Americans are ignoring the issue. 
"There is a big elephant in the room, but our society continues not to see it. This wrong is caused by political correctness. You can even call it political fear," he said. 
Bledsoe plans to describe how his son, Carlos, was radicalized when he went off to college in Nashville, Tenn. In his testimony, he explained how his son's personality changed and how, when he returned home for the holidays in 2005, he told his family he converted to Islam. From that point, he changed his name and eventually traveled to Yemen
"Some Muslim leaders had taken advantage of my son. But he's not the only one being taken advantage of. This is going on in Nashville and in many other cities in America," Bledsoe plans to say. "In Nashville, Carlos was captured by people best described as hunters. He was manipulated and lied to. That's how he made his way to Yemen."
