Left using Tiller murder to resurrect discredited DHS report

AmSpec's Matthew Vadum notes that the Left blogosphere is abuzz with one particular talking point: The murder of abortionist George Tillman proves that the Department of Homeland Security should not have withdrawn a report suggesting that everyone to the right of Obama was a potential terrorist.

Vadum cites some examples:
Zachary Roth of TPM Muckraker writes:
But in the wake of the murder of Dr. George Tiller by an anti-abortion extremist -- who had also been said by the FBI during the 1990s to have been a member of the radical Freemen group -- the report is looking a little more reasonable.
Predictably, Roth concludes, "[p]erhaps that report is due for a reassessment."
Hiding behind a pen name, "Kyle" of People for the American Way's Right Wing Watch, writes "it seems as if the report - far from being an offensive attack on Christians and anti-choice activists - was remarkably timely and accurate."
Given that this event (which I still contend was an atrocity) is turning out to be tailor-made to advance the Obama administration's agenda, perhaps we can suggest our own conspiracy theory by taking a cue from "Kyle" of People for the American Way: The timing of this murder was convenient. Too convenient.

Just kidding. I think.
