Washington Times presents a disturbing picture of terror recruitment in northern Virginia

Rowan Scarborough of the Washington Times reports on Dec. 27, that over 2016 nine people from northern Virginia, near the nation’s Capitol, have been arrested for promoting terrorism or trying to support ISIS, link here.   One of the individuals, the oldest, had graduated from West Potomac High School (where I have worked as a substitute teacher) and worked as a Metro police officer.

The article mentions recruiting through "gratuitous" social media, but doesn't get into the use of the Dark Web and apps like Telegram (WSJ story in October).

The article also discusses arrests in Minnesota among the Somali community.

The comments on the article are disturbing, some of them concerned with America’s supposed Christian identity.
