No s**t, Sherlock

This shouldn't be news, except for the fact that it's news.

Islamic State terrorists 'hiding in plain sight among migrants'

The head of the Armed Forces warns the UK faces "combat-experienced terrorists" from IS who are "moving in migrant flows".

Thursday 15 December 2016

Islamic State terrorists are "moving in migrant flows, hiding in plain sight", the head of the Armed Forces has warned.

In comments that could reignite the debate around ID cards, Sir Stuart Peach said Britain should think about how it "manages identity" due to the global reach of IS militants who deliberately destroy their identity documents to travel illegally into other countries.

Sir Stuart warned that IS, also known as Daesh, represents the closest danger.

Speaking at the Royal United Services Institute, he said: "I worry about the global reach of Daesh as an idea - copycat, using the internet - more than the internet - using social media, popping up all over the world.

"The Chinese state has accepted they have a problem. This is not now a localised phenomenon, it is now a wider phenomenon.

"And of course we face…a potential network of combat-experienced terrorists".

He added: "They are moving in migrant flows, hiding in plain sight.

"One of the obvious deductions…is how we manage identity in a world where people are deliberately trying to destroy their identity documents and/or they move in migrant flows."

Sir Stuart's comments come as British military personnel arrive in the Middle East to train "moderate" Syrian opposition forces, who are attempting to open up a second front around IS stronghold Raqqa.

Defence Secretary Sir Michael Fallon said the Syrian forces were being trained in infantry, medical and explosive hazard awareness skills.

Speaking ahead of a summit of defence ministers in London, Sir Michael added that Britain is taking a leading role in the fight against IS "through our airstrikes, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, and our training".

At the meeting, the Defence Minister will reveal that he has agreed to "surge" the number of data recovery experts to exploit material obtained as IS forces are defeated or flee from Mosul in Iraq.

But, maybe this is more "fake news"! What makes us believe that ISIS would dare to sneak people on the evac buses. These aren't the Russians or Trump we're talking about! ISIS isn't sneaky for chis' sake. Obviously more "fake news" from Fakebook.

Another diarrhea of the brain moment. It comes with age I guess. Shocks the crap out of me.

POTUS needs to get one of those TacLight flashlights that can squirt a strobe light at America's enemies. That'll fix 'em! Who needs a gun when you have a flashlight!

Geez, Louise!
