Joe Gandelman points to this NYTimes story today on what police departments are doing–or rather, not doing–to prevent suicide bombings on American soil.

Many of the police departments mentioned in the story continue to maintain reckless sanctuary policies; other moonbat cities, like Portland, Oregon, refuse to cooperate with federal counterterrorism efforts.

The Times, of course, neglects to point any of this out–instead highlighting the fact that Seattle’s police chief refuses to engage in any kind of national security profiling.

There’s also this unintentionally comical paragraph in the story, which is headlined, “Suicide Bombings Bring Urgency to Police in U.S.:”

Barnett Jones, chief of the Sterling, Mich., Police Department, with 259 employees, was one of more than a dozen officials who went to Israel for training in April. “One would say it is the front line,” Chief Barnett said of Israel. “We’re in a global war.”

Asked whether he had specific concerns because of the large Arab and Muslim population in the Detroit area, he responded delicately, saying: “The reality is we have a large population in our community that immediately become suspect, whether that is right or wrong, because of the global war. For me to sit here and say, ‘I’m not concerned’ would be wrong, but for me to sit here and say, ‘Yes I’m concerned’ would also be wrong.”

Feel safer?
