Minnesota delegation to Obama: We want clarity on how to handle ISIL

Climbing off planes Monday after five weeks of recess, Minnesota members of Congress say they are pressing the Obama administration for more information about plans to battle ISIL, a growing Islamist terrorist army in the Middle East actively recruiting soldiers from Minnesota. Both Democratic Sens. Al Franken and Amy Klobuchar have called on the Justice Department to fortify resources in Minnesota as details emerge that between 20 and 30 Minnesotans have been actively recruited by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, a group intent on restoring Islamic rule to a region that stretches from southern Turkey through Syria and includes Egypt, Lebanon, Israel, Jordan and the Palestinian territories.

How Hillary Clinton's 2016 Timeline Will Affect Republicans

Hillary Clinton's signal that she'll finally settle on whether to run for president again in January - a mere four months from now - likely will force the rest of the prospective field to reassess their own timelines for entry. Assuming Clinton allows her intentions to be known during the first month of the year and assuming she decides to run, the 2016 White House campaign could commence before people have packed away their holiday decorations.

Should We Strip A Traitor's Right Of Return?

Following the two most recent and well-publicised beheadings of American journalists, not to mention the looming threat made against a British national by an ISIS representative, there has been an increased public discussion whether or not citizens, determined to have supported or participated in terrorist activities, can or should have their citizenship and passport cancelled; effectively denying them the opportunity to return to their home countries. George Carey, the former archbishop of Canterbury, said Jihadists fighting overseas should lose their British passports and be barred from returning to the UK.
