Once upon a time, long long ago CNN actually reported real news. News that had a major effect on the day to day lives of everyday Americans.
That of course has since changed since the announcement that Donald Trump would be seeking the 2016 Republican nomination and subsequently become the 45th president of the United States.
News that has merit is now replaced with news / narratives designed to shift public opinion in favor of a political party.
Here’s a report from 2015 acknowledging the growing problem of terrorist recruitment in the state of Minnesota.
One can only imagine the problems the state faces now, some 3 years later.
The video opens with Andrew Luger, the U.S. attorney for Minnesota, comments on the arrests of six individuals on terror charges.
Here is a partial transcript:
“To be clear, we have terror recruiting problem in Minnesota and this case demonstrates how difficult it is to put an end to recruiting here. Parents and loved ones should know that there is not one master recruiter organizing in the Somali community locally. what this case shows is that the person radicalizing your son your brother our friend may not be a stranger it may be their best friend right here in town.”
