Training Neo-Nazis

Citing dozens of personal profiles of U.S. military on a neo-Nazi website, the Southern Poverty Law Center today urged Congress to investigate
extremist infiltration into armed forces that may be inadvertently training domestic terrorists. Having raised the issue for years in vain, the SPLC added one zinger in their letter to Congress – the discharge of over 12,500 military personnel for their sexual preference.

"It seems quite anomalous that the Pentagon would consider homosexuals
more of a threat to the good order of the military than neo-Nazis and
other white supremacists who reject our Constitution's most cherished
principles," said Mark Potok, director of the SPLC's Intelligence
Project.
