It's not difficult to read between the lines of this story and draw that inevitable conclusion. The only eye-opener is that the numbers have so far been so paltry:
The government has largely failed to stop more than 250 Americans who have traveled overseas since 2011 to join or try to join terrorist groups, including the Islamic State group, a new congressional study concluded on Tuesday. It did not provide details on the several dozen who have sneaked back into the United States without being arrested or monitored.
Because nobody has those details.
"The findings are concerning; we are losing in this struggle to keep Americans from the battlefield," House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul said Tuesday after his committee released the 65-page report.
Because "we" are not even trying to do so.
The report said the Obama administration lacked a strategy to prevent such travel abroad, identify all who try to return to commit terror attacks, or cope with new recruitment practices and technology that allow [Muslim]s to communicate securely.
One does not tend to have strategies for goals one has no desire or intention of attaining.
In short, if The One wanted to "prevent such travel abroad, identify all who try to return to commit terror attacks, or cope with new recruitment practices and technology that allow Muslims to communicate securely," they would not only have a strategy but would be carrying it out.
"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 said. "Several dozen have also managed to make it back into America." It noted that several people were identified and arrested this year trying to return to the United States.
Part of this is Regime encouragement; part of it is the ongoing, accelerating de-Christianization of America under O's rule. As Jesus Christ is more and more driven "underground," and materialism and sexual debauchery don't prove to be the utopian boon in practice that so many Americans have been emptily promised, that leaves a cultural vacuum that an ideology like Islam is primed and poised to fill.
Which, logically, is one of the goals of Barack Hussein Obama.
I'd expect that recruitment to take a huge upward spike going forward. O does have his "legacy" to build, after all.
