The FBI is going into the counseling business.
The Obama administration has launched a new approach to deal with potential ISIS supporters in the United States and it will require the FBI to offer therapy for the would-be jihadists.
And an even more disturbing aspect of the plan is that there are “thousands of Americans” who fall into this category.
The Wall Street Journal reports:
Faced with a wave of potential homegrown Islamic State supporters, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is embarking on a new approach with some suspects: putting them in counseling rather than handcuffs…
Proponents of the intervention model say it provides a possible “off ramp” from radicalization and addresses a hard truth: The FBI cannot effectively investigate all of the thousands of Americans who are believed to be interested in Islamic State, also known as ISIS.
“Fox & Friends Weekend” reported that officials said up to 10 percent of potential terror suspects will be recommended for counseling instead of arrest, with teenage suspects being a prime targets.
That’s right, instead of arresting the budding terrorists, the U.S. government will provide a comfortable couch instead — but don’t worry, those attending counseling will continue to fall under the watchful eye of the FBI.
