FBI director’s statement about Americans fighting with ISIS stuns [video]


FBI Director James Comey sparked some facepalms in an interview with “60 Minutes” that aired yesterday when he said that Americans fighting with ISIS overseas are “entitled” to return to the United States:

This HAS to change RT @foxnation: #FBI Director: Americans Fighting for Islamic State 'Entitled to Come Back' http://t.co/ziZ9QPtqcV #ISIS

Comey #FBI chief sz 12 Americans fighting for ISIS and we know who they are. But there may be some we don't know.

"60 Minutes" preview: FBI director on Americans fighting in ISIS army can come back home #ScottPelley Major Idiot! http://t.co/hQwY2MY4AY

That statement wasn’t very comforting for many:

@Cameron_Gray @foxnation He is an idiot & should step down. If #JamesComey thinks militants in US are ok, he didn't read his job description

@Cameron_Gray @foxnation Insanity. We have idiots running our government. Crazed inmates are running the asylum.

b/c we're not legally at "war," silly. MT @DanProft If we know the Americans fighting with ISIS, why wouldn't we revoke their passports?

FBI says Americans fighting with ISIS are "entitled" to come back — but don't worry, the government will track them! http://t.co/VPoUnZNi9Q

— Ken Gardner (@kesgardner) October 6, 2014

Will the government carefully track those who might be allowed to return to the United States?

FBI says they are tracking those coming back to the U.S. from fighting with ISIS. Like they kept track of the Boston Bombers? l

Did Marie Harf just say that even ISIS underestimated the spread of ISIS?

Obama: ‘Absolutely true’ that the US underestimated the rise of ISIS
