Well, Mr. McCaul, a Congressman and a former lawyer, was on CNN this morning with the same message – the radicalization of 250 young men who are leaving the USA to fight with ISIS. So under a common sense approach, using the Constitution and the fact they commit treason when they commit this act (which is fighting against the USA), the next step would be to revoke their passport and what does that do – they could not re-enter the country. If Mr. McCaul knows we have 250 men then he knows who they are. The other common sense bit of information is you have to have a passport to leave or enter the country – so why is McCaul making this so difficult. Just revoke their damn passports and they can’t go anywhere.

Michael McCaul, Chairman of the House Committee of Homeland Security, appeared on TV today talking about the number of young men leaving and returning (and why do you let them return) from fighting ISIS and specified there wasn’t a plan on how to handle these young people. This is not the first time he has appeared on TV.
I am thoroughly disgusted with McCaul, he has had enough time to come up with a plan for this situation. He has appeared a number of times citing these same words of warning.
Congressman McCaul, if these people leave the USA to fight with ISIS , they are traitors and their passports should be stripped and they should not be allowed to return. What is wrong with you people? Have you no shame on how you don’t follow the Constitution and protect the people in this country? My suggestion is you use the tools you have and if you can’t or don’t know how then you need to resign and let someone else take over your job. Again, I am thoroughly disgusted with your remarks. This only tells me you are not doing your job!
Homeland Warns of ISIS Retaliation in US by Sympathizers
Federal authorities today urged law enforcement across the country to be alert for possible attacks inside the United States in retaliation for U.S. airstrikes against the Islamic group ISIS, the brutal terrorist group that beheaded American journalist James Foley and has seized vast swaths of territory in Iraq and Syria.
In a joint bulletin issued to local, state and federal law enforcement, the Department of Homeland Security and FBI said that while they are “unaware of any specific, credible threats against the Homeland” and find most threats to the U.S. homeland by supporters of ISIS “not credible,” they cannot rule out attacks in the United States from sympathizers radicalized by the group’s online propaganda.
“Because of the individualized nature of the radicalization process – it is difficult to predict triggers that will contribute to [homegrown violent extremists] attempting acts of violence,” the bulletin states. Moreover, such lone offenders “present law enforcement with limited opportunities to detect and disrupt plots, which frequently involve simple plotting against targets of opportunity,” according to the bulletin.
The group is known by the acronyms ISIS and ISIL and recently changed its name to the Islamic State, claiming it has formed an Islamic caliphate in the areas of Syria and Iraq that it controls.
You have a plan – just follow the Constitution.
