The think tank Threat Knowledge Group just released a very comprehensive threat analysis of ISIS-related arrests within the United States. And that information is sobering and needs to be taken very seriously.
The report lists out “82 individuals in the United States affiliating with ISIS have been interdicted by law enforcement since March 2014 (including 7 unnamed minors and 4 killed in the course of attacks)” and provides their names and ages. I took a look at the ages of the people who were listed. Out of the 82 people, 52 of them are 25 years old or younger. Eighteen of those names listed were age 19 or younger. The youngest person listed was 15 years old. Obviously, the list included people like this young woman, but that doesn’t make them any less of a threat. The fact that so many YOUNG people have been connected, arrested, or convicted of trying to aid ISIS should make us all worry.
