Not monitoring ideology?

Janet Napolitano, head of Homeland Security:
"We are on the lookout for criminal and terrorist activity but we do not -- nor will we ever -- monitor ideology or political beliefs," Napolitano said in a statement amid charges that the department had done just that.
Right.  That's why you release a report on "rightwing extremists" that claims anyone who believes in gun rights or small government is a terrorist threat.  There was almost nothing in that report other than ideology.  Granted, we have some national history with violent racism, but you don't get to lump political ideology in with the racists.
