Thread Name: BS: Should 'Jihadi bride' come back to UK?
Subject: RE: BS: Should 'Jihadi bride' come back to UK?
My unofficial conversation with a couple of fellow Alaskans resulted in me being the most sympathetic to the American Jihadi bride. They felt she had no right of return nor citizenship.

She was interviewed and a brief bit shown on last night's (02/22/19) NBC news. She was asked about some of her rather vicious tweets for people to rent vehicles and run down other people, etc. and she answered: "My lawyer told me not to talk about this". So she seemed to be up on her desire to have everything her way and have somebody else foot the bill, which seems to me quite an American attitude.

One other concern that I haven't seen in this thread is that for either UK or US Jihadi bride, how does a decision on these ones impact the many others waiting in the wings? And can we distinguish between Jihadi brides and Jihadi brideGROOMS?
