The federal judge who halted President Donald Trump’s travel ban was wrong in stating that no one from the seven countries targeted in Trump’s order has been arrested for extremism in the United States since the 2001 terrorist attacks. In fact, as a new report finds, 72 individuals from the seven ‘mostly Muslim countries’ covered by President Trump’s “extreme vetting” executive order have been convicted of terrorism since 9/11.

Phi Beta Iota: The government attorney was an ill-prepared dolt who should not have been put in that position by the ham-fisted sophmoric manner in which the Trump team rushed an ill-considered ban into being. It must however also be noted that many of the 72 arrests are somewhat suspect in that the FBI is a theatrical agency that specializes in budget-building, not in actually doing counter-intelligence. Readers should consider the possibility that half or more of the 72 arrests were entrapments inspired by the FBI.
