They may have the ‘American’ moniker, but they’re not American in any sense of the word. Most if not all of them, are foreign born and became naturalized citizens. A few, like Douglas McCain, converted and followed the standard acquired Islamic skill of becoming a terrorist. There’s a definite pattern there.
From the Free Beacon.
Rep. Tim Bishop (D., N.Y.) warned during a recent speech that up to 40 radicalized U.S. citizens who have fought alongside the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL or ISIS) have already returned to the United States, where they could pose a terrorist threat.
Bishop claims that of the 100 or so Americans who have traveled to the Middle East to join ISIL’s ranks, some 40 have returned and are currently being surveilled by the FBI, according to his remarks, which were filmed and uploaded to YouTube last week.
“One of the concerns is the number of U.S. citizens who have left our country to go join up with ISIS,” Bishop said during the speech. “It is believed there have been some number up to 100 that have done that.”
“It is also believed that some 40 of those who left this country to join up with ISIS have now returned to our country,” Bishop said, eliciting shocked responses from some in the crowd.
These 40 individuals, Bishop said, “are under FBI attention and surveillance. So they are known and being tracked by the FBI.”
Lawmakers have warned that radicalized ISIL fighters could clandestinely enter the United States through the porous southern border.
……DHS has said that while there is no evidence of a direct threat by ISIL to the United States, it is aware that the group’s affiliates have been discussing the possibility of crossing the southern border.
……Other U.S. officials also have discussed the possibility of an ISIL adherent carrying out an attack on the United States.
“We remain mindful of the possibility that an ISIL-sympathizer—perhaps motivated by online propaganda—could conduct a limited, self-directed attack here at home with no warning,” Matthew Olsen, director of the U.S. National Counterterrorism Center, said in a speech earlier this month.
Instead of being under ‘surveillance’, they need to be rounded up and put in front of a military tribunal. They’re enemy combatants and they should be treated as such. There’s so many of them in this country who are being harbored in radical muzzie enclaves, and the feds aren’t doing what it takes to get rid of them.
It will take another attack that makes 9/11 look like a fucking picnic before the DHS and the public at large wakes up from their coma.
Of course, the DemProg contingent sees no connection between Obama’s dicked-up foreign policy and the rise of groups like ISIS.
