I agree immigration policies need to be toughened up for those coming from hostile nations. However I don't consider the attacks in Europe or the Orlando attack home grown. These are foreign people living in the west who are being inspired and directed from the sandy wastes of the Syrian desert. The fact that these jihadies have moved here to carry out these attacks does not make the terrorism "home grown". Home grown terrorists are people like Tim McVeigh or some KKK violence, black panthers etc. Those are home grown terrorists. When some guy kills a bunch of people for ISIS then he is a foreign terrorist, and we need to go after the head of the snake, not keep trying to chop off its tail.

Really? I suggest you go back to Obama.com and check your facts, maybe even read his book?

It was a public school in a Muslim country. The public school system taught a bit of religion here and there, much like schools here used to teach religion prior to our country turning overly PC. It wasn't a "Muslim school."

I don't think you understand what's being explained. These people are BORN in the U.S, or France, or Belgium. That makes them home-grown, just like McVeigh. It's not rocket science. Don't overanalyze.

Default ISIS Mastermind Behind Istanbul Terrorist Attack Was A "Refugee" Protected By Europe

As Russia's Kommersant and Turkish media report, a Chechen national suspected of being the mastermind behind the deadly Istanbul airport terrorist attack, had previously received refugee status in Austria, which helped him to repeatedly avoid extradition to Russia on terror charges.

What I really want to know is how all of this world travel by presumably penniless people was funded, and what documents they used for travel. This is why I started the thread, Re: Current Terror, Maybe Internment Should be Option. Something is very fishy about this world gallivanting by people who are supposed to be helpless people fleeing well-founded fears of persecution.
