Most U.S. Domestic Terror Attacks Committed By...

Arabic is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world and English doesn’t surpass it by much.

Most acts of terrorism in the United States have historically been committed by English-speaking white men. 
The KKK and other white supremacist/far-right groups have committed multiple 9/11s alone, especially over the last century, but we usually aren’t overly suspicious of English-speaking white men without any known ties to the aforementioned groups. 
In fact, since the early 90s, most terrorist attacks in the United States came from mostly white, right-wing groups and they’ve been steadily increasing, especially around 2006. 

Individuals of a Middle Eastern heritage and/or Muslims haven’t even come close. 

And yet, agencies like Homeland Security and the FBI have disassembled task forces and departments that focused on those groups, even refusing to track and analyze the terrorist attacks committed. Why could that be?
