17. I doubt that the degree of racist infiltration is not known. I'd start by counting the tattoos.

“No one truly knows,” Audrey Kurth Cronin, the director of American University’s Center for Security, Innovation and New Technology, told a House panel this week. “No serious plan can be built without defining the scope of the problem.”


He makes it sound like there's no one with an impression at all of the infiltration. He may have a statistical point but the remark is entirely misleading. Racism isn't new in American military life. We've had a number of periods when we've been told the Armed Forces were looking into responding to and working to eliminate it. The idea that White Supremacists would try to infiltrate the command structure is neither new nor surprising. A number of organizations who monitor racist groups have been warning for some time that this was not only a goal but had already occurred.
