In recent days, the Department of Homeland Security might revive a never-used terrorism warning system, leaving some skeptics wondering just who the Obama administration is really targeting.

As reported by Defense One, DHS chief Jeh Johnson ordered a top-down review of the nation’s terrorist alert system not because of overseas threats but because of what he said were rising concerns over the threat of attacks that originate from within the U.S. following a recent terrorist incident in Tennessee.

Defense One further noted:

The U.S. has never used the National Terrorism Alert System, a two-level system that replaced the oft-derided color-coded terrorism alerts installed after 9/11 to spread the word about potential attacks from abroad. But after a “homegrown violent extremist” killed five service members in Chattanooga, Tenn. — and amid the expectation of more terrorist-inspired attacks — the Department of Homeland Security wants to revise and jumpstart the system.

The administration has been judicious, to say the least, with its use of the term “terrorism,” even going so far as to classify the Fort Hood shooting in 2009, in which a known jihadi sympathizer who also happened to be a U.S. Army officer, as “workplace violence.” Hence, the classification of “homegrown violent extremist” for the Tennessee shooting, which can give the impression the White House is attempting to politicize this decision and the resultant revival of the unused terrorist classification. More on that in a moment.

“I’ve asked our folks to consider whether we should revise that system to accommodate how the terrorism threat has evolved,” Johnson said recently during the annual meeting of the Association of the U.S. Army in Washington, D.C. “That review is underway now.”
