ALARMING REPORT: Americans being radicalized by ISIS at unprecedented rate

The United States has “largely failed” in its effort to keep Americans from joining the Islamic State extremist group in Iraq and Syria, and the government lacks a national strategy for combating the trend, a bipartisan congressional report stated.


RT Report Continues:

Released on Monday, the report found that the federal government has generally failed to keep more than 250 Americans from leaving the country to join Islamic State (IS, also known as ISIS/ISIL) since 2011. Overall, nearly 30,000 people from around the world have traveled to the region in the same time frame.

“Despite concerted efforts to stem the flow, we have largely failed to stop Americans from traveling overseas to join jihadists,”the House of Representatives’ Homeland Security Committee concluded. “Of the hundreds of Americans who have sought to travel to the conflict zone in Syria and Iraq, authorities have only interdicted a fraction of them.”

The report stated that “several dozen” Americans have also been able to reenter the US after traveling to the conflict zones. It cautioned that Americans are being radicalized at an “unprecedented speed,” and that they hold armed combat experience as well as extremist connections. Even if they don’t come back to US shores, they seek to continue radicalizing others by way of the internet.

“Our nation faces a grave and growing threat from foreign fighters,” said committee Chairman Michael McCaul (R-Texas).“Sadly, global efforts have failed to stop the flow of these aspiring jihadists into Syria, and we have already seen ‘returnees’ from the conflict zone come home to America and Europe and plot acts of terror.”

Additionally, the report stated that the US lacks a national strategy for ….

    Americans being radicalized by ISIS. That’s what Obama has had in mind since he campaigned to be a Senator and then a President. Obama is full of treason and deceit and every Democrat that genuflects before him as their Muslim god should be voted out of office. This may be our last chance to begin restoring this once great Country.

    Well, what do these idiots expect? They’ve been letting them in to the USA for years, and now they’re going for some training!
    But they’ll be back with the 185,000 refugee/terrorists that the usurper is bringing over………………….just watch!

    Knowing how many are being radicalized, means they have some way of knowing who they are. With open borders they can return to USA and join up with any one of 23 fighting camps obama has allowed to set up; obama lets it happen without further action because he is supporting islamic terrorism by not doing any thing.

    If these so called Americans leave to join ISIS or be trained by them, they should lose their citizenship and be stopped from reentering the country. Have their passport revoked, have their citizenship revoked, and send them back to ISIS to live in their preferred state.

    This ‘administration’ has NO policy for anything other than pushing his personal agenda and ‘legacy’. If America has to burn for that, then so be it. This muzlim BS could be stopped if there was a will to do it in the government. The internet could be controlled and for damn sure monitored (as it all already is, in the government’s Utah facility, which has just looked at every keystroke I typed) IF they wanted to protect us from izlamic terrorists. But then, you’ll have to have somebody in charge who’s not been indoctrinated into the ‘faith’ of izlam as a youth, or at least an apparent lover of such, in the white house. The congregation of these types like in Dearborn, MI will prove seriously dangerous in the future, count on it.

    I don’t see why our government is having such a problem. The answer is REALLY SIMPLE; let them leave, and NEVER let them back in. Revoke their citizenship. It’s really not that hard!
