I didn't see any evidence of it in my time in the service. Yes, we had some people who clearly were prejudiced against others and most were dealt with promptly...

Self-reporting based on "dozens" of interviews... Later says "more than 30"... so roughly 31-38 people interviewed from a military of ~ 2.1 Million. But hey, if they are telling you what you want to hear, why question it, right? The report did say that in 2021 they found "less than 100 instances", so lets say 90... Three times as many as were interviewed for this piece.

So perhaps it is like what was quoted in this article - "They always say the numbers are small, and because of that, it is not a priority," Carter Smith, a 30-year Army criminal investigator, told The New York Times in 2019. "So every year they get a report based on what they were never looking for."

Overall this report is just an example of how Fox keeps its sheep in line.

How many Timothy McVeigh's constitute a problem? 100? 50?
I think finding one before some disaster happens warrants keeping a sharp eye out.

LTC David Brown - If I recall the history, McVeigh was known as an extremist while in service.

I do not want to see investigations into extremism disrupted the mission, but I do think it is necessary.

Does the same apply to guys with the same ideologies as Nidal Hassan? Are we going to root out Muslim extremism in the US military too? Just curious.

MSG Stan Hutchison - we have geniuses like the Unibomber, Ted Kaczynski, Or Theodore Bundy, etc who are evil geniuses, elite schools looking mental misfits? We had gang signs all over Iraq and Afghanistan, are they looking for gang members?
