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:

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

seriously folks americans who have joined ISIS have committed treason. HOW fucking dumb is the fbi director saying they should be allowed in

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

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
