A video at the link says the Obama admin is “wrestling” with whether to charge the Muslim girls caught trying to join Muslim terrorists as terrorists. via Three American Girls En Route to Syria Planned to Join Militant Groups, Official Says – ABC News.
The FBI has tracked down three American teenage girls in Germany while they were en route to Syria to join militant groups, a law enforcement official told ABC News today.
The girls have not been identified, but law enforcement officials said two are sisters — 15 and 17 years old — and one is 16 years old. The two sisters are from Somalia and the 16-year-old is from Sudan, according to a federal law enforcement source briefed on the case.
This is part of a worrisome trend of “disaffected youth” who are being radicalized, the official said, pointing to the wider phenomenon of foreign fighters converging on the conflict in the region.
There have been other cases of high school age kids trying to get to Syria that haven’t been made public, the official said.
The girls were persuaded to travel overseas and were in contact with someone in Germany, the official said, noting that someone close to them notified authorities.
They were turned around and sent back to the United States, the official said, noting that because they are minors it remains unclear whether they will be charged with anything or be “arrested.”
The Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Department in Colorado responded to a call on Oct. 17 of three missing teens, a department spokesman said, noting that deputies responded to two homes with Denver mailing addresses that are technically in unincorporated Arapahoe County. Family and friends reported the girls missing, but nobody mentioned or knew that the girls had gone overseas, according to the sheriff’s department. The case was closed when a family member called Monday to tell the sheriff’s department that the girls were back safe in Colorado, a spokesman said.
“FBI Denver Division is aware of the situation and assisted with bringing the individuals back to Denver. The juveniles are safe and reunited with their families,” FBI Denver spokeswoman Sue Payne said.
How about immigration charges too? Is it not a crime to lie about intended destinations and purpose? Who bought the tickets? Who paid for them? Will the FBI dare investigate the mosques the girls attended?
