Thread Name: BS: Should 'Jihadi bride' come back to UK?
Subject: RE: BS: Should 'Jihadi bride' come back to UK?
To get this interesting thread vaguely back on course it is necessary to point out that "deradicalisation" programs are not 100% successful.

The Parsons Green bomber told Home Office officials when he arrived in Britain that he had been trained as an Isis child soldier, a court has heard.Iraqi teenager Ahmed Hassan was taken into foster care and interviewed by authorities in 2016 and claimed he had not been sent by the terrorist group to launch an attack. The home made bomb was faulty and did not fully detonate.
Even so 50 people had burn injuries of varying severity. Had the bomb detonated the included shrapnel would undoubtedly have caused many fatalities and horrendous injuries.
The perpetrator was a child of "18"

" According to the latest estimate by the Office of the Directorate of National Intelligence (ODNI), the rate of confirmed or suspected recidivism among former Guantanamo detainees is about 27 percent or 161 individuals out of the 600 released (HASC, 2012). The estimated recidivism rate, however, has been rising up from seven percent in July 2008 to 14 percent in April 2009, and 25 percent in October 2010 (HASC, 2012"
It would seem reasonable to suppose of the 800 returning jihadis 200 pose a severe risk and will attempt to maim and kill indiscriminately".

And for a stunning effort Bliar Blair not only pushed for a terrorist to be released from Guatanomo Bay but also paid him 1million pounds compensation. He then promptly went back to Iraq and got exterminated while on a terrorist mission. I hope the government reclaimed his proceeds of crime!

All returning jihadis have to be considered a very real risk. Some of those returning will undoubtedly try to kill again. We have no idea who they will be!
