The White House has invited state and local police chiefs to the White House to discuss homegrown terrorists.
Expressing criticism of the government, and purchasing a firearm, are two warning signs the White House seeks to stress, according to a story by the Associated Press.
Is the White House really trying to combat true terrorism with this high profile conference? Or are some elements pitched at this event being spun in a manner to intimidate the administration's critics, and stifle legitimate political discussion and activism?
By inviting police chiefs to the White House, the administration appears intent on making local police a party to any political games that may be afoot here.
