MORE LIES=> ’60 Minutes’ Claims 74% of “Extremist” Killing in US in Last 10 Years were “Right-Wing” — Complete Garbage!
On Sunday night CBS reporter Scott Pelley told the far left “60 Minutes” audience that 74% of extremist related killings in the US in the last 10 years were committed by “right-wing” extremists.
Of course, this is complete garbage.
The would-be Bangladesh bomber in New York City last week was the latest Islamist attack in America.
A US Senate report released in 2016 by Senators Ted Cruz and Jeff Sessions found that 380 out of the 580 terror related cases in the United States since 9-11 involved foreign born Islamists.
The report did not include the San Bernardino attacks that resulted in 16 deaths by Islamists Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik.
The report also did not include the terror attacks in Minnesota and Ohio in 2016.
The Federalist reported:
If one were truly interested in whether there is a terror threat from individuals born abroad, one would examine the totality of activity, not a narrowly constructed definition aimed to minimize it. That’s what senators Ted Cruz and Jeff Sessions did last June when they examined 580 individuals successfully prosecuted on terrorism offenses from September 2001 until 2014. According to the senators, 380 were foreign-born and at least 40 were refugees. While not all of those cases involved successful or attempted terror attacks, all involved cases that were terrorism-related.
