Or, maybe it really is homegrown. If everyone everywhere is an American, then the proposition of America must extend to the four corners. Hmm. Regardless, we’re getting more activity:
Jihadist threats from homegrown terrorists in America continue to increase each month, with at least nine foreign born individuals living in the United States arrested or convicted in June of attempting to launch attacks on behalf of ISIS and other global terrorist organizations, according to newly released information by Congress.
“Cases of homegrown Islamist extremism in the U.S. continue to be an issue of concern,” according to the House Homeland Security Committee’s monthly report of terrorism in America, which has been tracking an increase in homegrown jihadists for some time. “Since 2013, there have been 154 homegrown jihadist cases in the United States” from at least 30 different states.
The information highlights the ongoing threat posed by rogue jihadists influenced by international terror groups, but not necessarily directly tied to them, which makes these would-be attackers more difficult to track for federal authorities.
Homegrown foreign-born individuals. See the confusion?
Not to worry; we’re assured all of this is offset by a solid boost to the GDP.
Sadly, there will be no TPC article this week. This may have to stand in.
