WASHINGTON American intelligence and law enforcement agencies have identified nearly a dozen Americans who have traveled to Syria to fight for the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, the militant group that the Obama administration says poses the greatest threat to the United States since Al Qaeda before the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
As ISIS has seized large expanses of territory in recent months, it has drawn more foreign men to Syria, requiring more American and European law enforcement resources in the attempt to stop the flow of fighters, senior American officials said. And as a result of the increasing numbers of men, ISIS is now recruiting foreign women as jihadi wives.
ISIS has become more attractive to would-be militants because, unlike Al Qaeda, it has seized territory that it rules by strict Islamic law. ISIS is able to hold itself up as the true jihad, said a senior American official. Theyre saying: Look at what we are doing, what were accomplishing. Were the new face. Were not just talking about it. Were doing it.

Will they mail them their medals or wait until they return to the States and have a ceremony?
How long before Bammy & MooseShell are flying over there for the party?
Drop them in a dingy off the coast of Somalia or in the middle of the Bermuda Triangle...
Is one of them dear leader Zer0?
Minnesota Muslims caught fighting for ISIS in Syria yet Eric Holder sues for a another Mosque to be built there?
Yes, Holder is such a piece of sh!t. I am glad there are, so far, 3 dead Minnesota ISIS terrorists. That is 216 less inbred virgins we need to worry about, who are looking for husbands.
I wonder if I can volunteer to couch potato from Ukraine?
wonder which one will be a speaker at the next DNC presidential convention????
Close the made-up anchor baby loophole...
This country is upside down under Obama. Way upside down and where I did not think this country would EVER be.
It is worse than black is white and white is black.
This Muslim in Chief is destroying our country exponentially not in incremental steps. If he announces the amnesty, like being reported, it will be a 10x multiplier.
The question, how can it be stopped? This is what I ask myself and my direct contacts everyday. IMO, Congress is complicit and will do nothing to stop the destruction and a military takeover by patriots is only option left. But, who will the leader be?
Regrettably America's Military has a cic that works with and for our Military's and America's enemies. It is so much less than wonderful Americans pay this person (zer0), his cabinet and all within his administration to be America's enemies best ally.
My apology MtnClimber for 'striking' two of the words stricken. zer0 is neither dear nor a leader to me ... No offense meant to you.
Why try to stop them from going over there? Wouldn't it be better to have those ISIS sympathizers over there where they are more likely to be taken "care" of rather than here plotting mayhem?
If I joined a monetary in Hungary, then would the U.S. government publicly call me out? In this country, I have First Amendment rights to protect my “freedom of association”. The Constitution does not apply outside the United States. If someone joins a group and comes back intended to perform treasonous acts, that is another thing called border security.
Indeed. Viewed from a pesticide perspective, let ISIS be the ‘catch crop’ that draws the pests that would otherwise destroy your main harvest.
I find it amusing ME leaders are alarmed about IS: they have no control over them with which to manipulate world politics and oil prices.
Look at that. They posed for a group photo before they departed for Syria.
