Joseph Farah rants in his March 24 WorldNetDaily column:
When I first saw this report, I really thought it was an early April Fools’ Day joke.
The director of national intelligence, James Clapper, removed Iran and Hezbollah from the list of world terrorist threats.
The report has been sent to the U.S. Senate, where it should be renounced in the strongest terms possible and publicly rejected.
As we documented when NewsBusters' Tom Blumer, Clapper does not control the official list of what the U.S. considers terrorist threats -- the State Department does, and it still lists Iran and Hezbollah -- and any omissions to that effect in the DNI report means nothing in that regard.
