Megyn Kelly chose to focus on the strange happenings going on in Minneapolis and St. Paul, MN that are producing and recruiting Islamic State terrorists into the Middle East to fight alongside ISIS.
She spoke with former Deputy Assistant Attorney General Tom Dupree about how Attorney General Eric Holder had assigned 40 FBI agents to cover the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, Mo., and wondered out loud how many are being assigned to these recruitments out of Minnesota.
“I think ISIS poses a greater threat to the United States’ national security than the Ferguson police department does,” Dupree said. “I trust the Justice Department will recognize that and I trust they will deploy sufficient resources to find out why Minneapolis and St. Paul have become a hotbed for ISIS and a fertile recruiting ground for jihadists.”
“There’s something about Minneapolis and its community that is leading to this sort of radicalization,” Megyn Kelly responded. “What have we heard, if anything, from DOJ on this?”
“We haven’t heard much, Megyn,” Dupree said. “… But I think what’s going on here is that these guys aren’t doing this themselves, they are being radicalized. Whether it’s by seeing the materials on the Internet that’s firing them up, or whether there are actually people in Minneapolis and St. Paul working these communities – giving these people the means, the money, the plane tickets, the instruction – telling them what they need to do to go abroad and engage in this jihad.”
“So I think what the FBI needs to focus on is, are there people on the ground in Minneapolis and St. Paul who are fomenting this sort of thing. This is not just a foreign policy issue, this is a domestic security issue and the FBI and DOJ need to recognize that.”
