100? Is that all? I have a tiny feeling it’s probably a bit more. Mark Levin brought up an excellent point today pointing to the FBI investigating this debacle while GOP leadership attacks Michelle Bachmann and other House Republicans for daring to ask questions about Muslim Brotherhood influence at the US State Department via Hillary’s ‘Body Woman’ Huma Abedin. Pandering hypocrites, every single one of them.
The FBI and military officials are conducting investigations into possible insider terror threats from Islamic extremists within the U.S. military. NPR has learned that about a dozen serious investigations are underway. The real challenge may be finding ways to prevent radicalization within the military in the first place.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation has investigated over 100 cases of suspected Islamic extremists either in the U.S. military or closely associated with it.
About a dozen of the cases are considered “serious,” according to a report from National Public Radio — based on a closed House-Senate committee hearing in December. There is no indication as to whether the number has increased in the ensuing six months. This is the first time the number of cases has been publicly reported.
“Serious” cases include suspects who are planning attacks or are in touch with “dangerous individuals.”
