Peter Bergen, CNN's national security analyst, and David Sterman, a research assistant at the New America Foundation, published an opinion piece on CNN Monday with the title: "U.S. right wing extremists more deadly than jihadists."

It asserts: "Since 9/11 extremists affiliated with a variety of far-right wing ideologies, including white supremacists, anti-abortion extremists and anti-government militants, have killed more people in the United States than have extremists motivated by al Qaeda's ideology. According to a count by the New America Foundation, right wing extremists have killed 34 people in the United States for political reasons since 9/11. (The total includes the latest shootings in Kansas, which are being classified as a hate crime)."
