Report rips Obama for adding Muslim refugees while 'downplaying' threat

The Islamic State has recruited thousands of supporters in the United States, far more than previously thought, according to a scathing new report, raising the likelihood that supporters of the terrorist army could be plotting attacks similar to those carried out in Paris.

And the “challenges of screening incoming refugees” from Muslim countries may be adding fuel to the fire, according to the report, authored by national security experts at the Threat Knowledge Group.

The report accuses Obama of “downplaying” the threat of ISIS while adding to the threat by importing Muslim refugees that are difficult to screen.

The U.S. has imported 70,000 refugees per year for many years, more than half of them from Muslim-dominated countries such as Somalia and Iraq with active jihadist movements, and President Obama has pledged to increase that number to 85,000 this year and 100,000 the following year.

The new study is significant because the Obama administration has in the past made statements that “around 200″ Americans had left the country to join ISIS and could come back at any time using their American passports.

The FBI has said it has about 900 active ISIS investigations in all 50 states but never given an estimate of how big the contingent of ISIS sympathizers may be in the U.S.

The Threat Knowledge Group’s chairman is counter-terrorism expert Sebastian Gorka, a Department of Defense adviser. The group, which includes academics and policy advisers, has put together a list of 82 persons in the United States who were affiliated with the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, and apprehended by law enforcement officials, including those who traveled or attempted to travel to Iraq and Syria, launched domestic attacks, or participated in recruiting or fundraising.
