Terrorist Training Camps in America?

The American public was never supposed to know. The 2006 Justice Department document that exposes 35 terrorist training compounds in the U.S. was marked “Dissemination Restricted to Law Enforcement.” All the copies of Sheik Muburak Gilani’s terrorist training video, “Soldiers of Allah,” had been confiscated and sealed—all of them, that is, except one—that Christian Action Network now reveals in the documentary Homegrown Jihad: The Terrorist Camps Around the U.S.

It seems unfathomable—nearly three dozen terrorist training compounds in the U.S. and the FBI, Homeland Security, and State Department are no help at all? But the evidence is irrefutable: as Jamaat ul-Fuqra (known in the U.S. as Muslims of America) leader Sheik Muburak Gilani professes on the Soldiers of Allah video, “We are fighting to destroy the enemy. We are dealing with evil at its roots and its roots are America.
The Soldiers of Allah training video teaches American students how to operate AK-47 rifles, rocket launchers, and machine guns; how to kidnap Americans and then kill them; how to conduct sabotage and subversive operations; and how to use mortars and explosives.

With almost 50 terrorist attacks on American soil linked to Jamaat ul-Fuqra—ranging from bombings to murder to plots to blowing up American landmarks—what will it take for the government to protect its citizens from self-professed enemies of Americans? They hide across 35 American cities as innocuous-sounding as Hancock, NY; Red House, VA; and Seattle, WA.”

This article (and many others on this topic) goes on to explain how our government knows about these camps, but fails to do anything about them because they are “protected by the Constitution” and were “included in several recent annual terrorism reports under ‘other terrorist groups,’ i.e., groups that had carried out acts of terrorism but that were not formally designated by the Secretary of State.”
Initially, a friend introduced me to this video, to which I reacted with skepticism…so I did my own research and found many articles on the topic, but not many sources aside from Christian Action Network itself. To me, that leaves the question: hoax, misinformation, or truth?

What do you think?
If this is real, should the government shut them down, or are they in fact protected by the Constitutional freedom of religion (I’d like to hear some liberal responses to that one)?
Would you change your mind if there were one in your back yard?
That’s right, fellow Nashvillians…there’s supposedly even one less than 90 miles from us near Dover, Tennessee.

Scary?
