“The threat we are facing from homegorwn jihadist terrorists is read, and Congressman Walsh will not bow to political correctness and ignore the issue,” Justin Roth, Walsh spokesman told the Chicago Sun-Times.
Since 9/11 there have been over 40 jihadist terror plots. For that reason Attorney General Eric Holder has said that the growing threat of American being radicalized is what ‘keeps him awake at night.’”
Locally there was the Black Muslim who plotted with a Cooperating Witness to plant a bomb in trash container at Rockford’s Cherry Vale Mall. No mainstream media I saw reported that “homegrown” terrorist.
The article does point out that Walsh is a member of the Homeland Security Committee in the U.S. House.
