FBI Arrests Six in Minnesota, California ISIS Recruitment Network

"Six Minnesota men have been charged with terrorism in a criminal complaint unsealed Monday, the latest Westerners accused of traveling or attempting to travel to Syria to join the Islamic State group.

They are the latest people from Minnesota to be charged in an investigation stretching back months into the recruitment of Westerners by IS. Authorities said earlier that a handful of Minnesota residents have traveled to Syria to fight with militants in the past year, and at least one has died."  [WND]

Be Sure To Read This SPECIAL REPORT:

It pains me to read this report describing the locus of jihadists in the U.S. as the Cedar-Riverside area of Minneapolis.  This area, adjacent to the University of Minnesota's Main Campus is in the heart of where both my maternal and paternal ancestors lived in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, as well as where both my wife and I received our university education in the late 1950's.   [clipper]
