According to Obama the biggest terrorist threat the US faces is not from Islamists

Another must read from Israel's great author and professor Barry Rubin. Flash: President Obama Hints that the biggest domestic terrorist threat is not Islamism but right wing Americans
When I heard what Obama had said to Wolf Blitzer of CNN,  I had the exact same thoughts.

I remember president George W Bush saying the first thing he got every morning was his daily national security briefing because his number one job was to keep America safe.

Well it looks like Obama thinks to himself  "I got Bin Laden, so the Islamic terrorist threat is now over."  While the first thing president Bush thought about every morning was how to keep America safe, Obama says [without sincerity] the first thing he thinks about every morning is jobs. 
Wait, I'm wrong. He is sincere.  Yes, I am sure the first thing he thinks about every morning is jobs.... his job.

Professor Rubin's article begins:
"This is huge. President Barack Obama informs us, as the tenth anniversary of the September 11 attacks approaches, that his biggest fear is not radical Islamist terrorism but right-wing, Islamophobic terrorism. On Wolf Blitzer’s CNN show, the president explains:
“The biggest concern we have right now is not the launching of a major terrorist operation, although that risk is always there. The risk that we’re especially concerned over right now is the lone wolf terrorist, somebody with a single weapon being able to carry out wide- scale massacres of the sort that we saw in Norway recently.”
In other words, the main threat to America isn’t al-Qaida–which he says the United States has largely defeated–or various other groups that have tried and failed on a number of occasions recently (“underpants” bomber; “Times Square” bomber) but some right-wing anti-administration nut."
