COVID-19 Response

Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.

Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.

If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.

@24AheadDotCom_ Tamerlan was 14 or 15 when he was admitted, he became radicalized in the US along a similar path as other Americans-online

.@AnneSpeckhard: Tsarnaevs have interesting links but that's besides the point. In general, % of Mexicans in USA DWARFS % of Chechens.

.@AnneSpeckhard: you think there's a reason why we've admitted so few Chechens? Shouldn't possible radicalization have been monitored?

.@AnneSpeckhard: in any case, why wouldn't ISIS use undercover moles? They seem smart enough.

.@annespeckhard: haven't there been cases of deep cover moles? What makes you think ISIS wouldn't use a Syrian refugee in the same role?

.@annespeckhard: Politifact quotes you as saying why send an ISIS extremist from EU rather than wait years from Syria.
