180 Americans Joined ISIS in Syria. Guess Why 40 Have Returned Home8 March 2023
VOI's Jeremy Gimpel rants about the revelation that US intelligence services estimate that more than 20,000 foreigners from 90 countries have joined Islamic militants in Syria and Iraq. He points to the story of an Ohio man closely connected to Islamic State militants who was caught planning an attack against Americans. In a TV interview, the man said that he would have shot President Barack Obama in the head. "My brothers over there, in Syria and Iraq, gave me specific orders to carry out jihad in the West, so I did so," he said.
