These guys were not a credible threat imo...YES, they probably do side with ISIS and other extremist groups and YES, they probably would join a terrorist group given the chance....but how realistic is that? Seriously, they 'saved $2000' and were talking about traveling around the world causing destruction?!! They better save a whole bunch more money!


These kinds of cases are nothing but guys with dreams of grandeur!! They talk about all the destruction they intend to cause, and wanting to join a terrorist group...but cannot afford to even get to the middle east!!



They deserved to be arrested and probably need to be deported, but in all honesty, they were never a credible threat to anyone (they didnt have the means or capacity).

They get picked up for reentry after deportation and thrown out again.

$2K is more than enough to get one of them to ISIS country. after that, they planned to seek gainful employment chopping off infidel heads.

They were picked up trying to leave the country, not enter it.

We could have listened to the non-Somali African immigrants who told us to NOT bring in Somalis.

I doubt ISIS or any other terrorist group would have anything to do with them...since they came by plane from the US, they would probably be suspected of being undercovers, trying to imbed themselves into a group.


They probably would been killed had they made it to where they wanted to go, these were YOUNG guys, not smart enough to realize you cannot just jump on a plane and join up with a terrorist group!

These two whack jobs were headed to Cairo with an undefined intent to commit acts of terrorism.

They definitely would. Omar's district in Minnesota is the top terror recruitment area in the United States. She even wrote a letter to the judge in a case where 9 Somalis in her district tried to get into Mexico to get to Syria to join isis. She asked the judge to have "compassion" for the failed terrorists.

If a repub called for such violence and some nut job tried to carry it out, the media and dems would be apoplectic. Bet no one else brings up the call by Madonna to consider blowing up the WH.
LOL. You beat me to it.
