Homeland Insecurity: The FBI's arrest of a group of New Jersey and New York Muslims trying to organize a "small army" for the Islamic State leaves little doubt we are facing a full-blown Islamic insurgency inside our borders.
According to a just-released federal criminal complaint, five young Muslim men tied to IS were busted conspiring to recruit a small army for the terror group in New Jersey and New York.
The busts bring to 70 the number of IS-inspired terrorists arrested in this country in homeland plots.
Meantime, the FBI reports that all 56 of its field offices have active investigations against other IS suspects.
It's now clear we're besieged by a Fifth Column. Yet the White House fatuously insists these are unrelated, unconnected, isolated, one-off "lone wolf" incidents.
Federal agents don't see it that way. They see all these "lone wolves" running in the same religious pack.
On Monday, agents charged Nader Saadeh, a 20-year-old Jordanian immigrant from Rutherford, N.J., with providing material support to IS. Saadeh's 23-year-old brother, Alaa, along with at least three other Muslims were also arrested in connection with the IS cell.
The complaint says the devout Muslims "discussed building a small army" to attack non-Muslims. In a recorded conversation, one suspect fretted about NSA surveillance and suggested they leave America, to which another suspect stated: "Why? We already infiltrated."
