Hmm, why haven’t we been told this before today?
Some of an estimated 100 Americans who have traveled to the Middle East and joined terrorist organizations like the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) have returned to the United States, a senior administration official said Monday.
At a Monday briefing previewing an administration push for a United Nations resolution to prevent the flow of foreign citizens into conflict zones to join terrorist groups, a senior administration official said that an estimated 15,000 individuals had entered Iraq and Syria to join groups like ISIS and the al Nusra Front. The official said that 2,000 of those foreign fighters were European, and that 100 were Americans.
That number includes Americans “who may have tried to travel or those who have come back,” a second senior administration official said.
Well, if they know there’s about 100 of them, wouldn’t they know their identity?
“It includes those who have gone, those who have tried to go, those who have come back and are under active — the FBI is looking at them,” the official said.
And they’re still roaming free why, exactly? Meanwhile, the buffoonish John Kerry actually said so-called climate change is just as grave a threat as ISIS, not to mention ebola.
Secretary of State John Kerry said the threats posed by climate change should be addressed with as much “immediacy” as confronting the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), and the Ebola outbreak.
During a meeting with foreign ministers on Sunday, Kerry said global warming is creating “climate refugees.”
We are so doomed.
