Kudos Bennie Thompson

I can’t believe I actually said “Kudos” and “Bennie Thompson” in the same sentence. 

But, there it is.

Tuesday, Chairman Thompson (MS-2nd) sent a letter to DHS Secretary Napolitano saying that he was “dumbfounded” that DHS would issue a report identifying veterans as potential terrorist threats.

“This report appears to raise significant issues involving the privacy and civil liberties of many Americans — including war veterans,” said Thompson in the letter sent yesterday.

Thompson’s letter comes as a welcome surprise to many conservatives who saw the report as being aimed not only at veterans, but also at law-abiding people who believe in gun rights, are pro-life, or who are religious.

To see Mr. Thompson make such a strong and principled stand earns him high praise from this corner.

Thank you Bennie Thompson.
