Terror Breeding Ground?

Fox News

A new report has furthered the warning that prisons in the U.S. are becoming breeding grounds for Islamic terrorists. The study by George Washington University and the University of Virginia says there are not enough adequately trained Muslim counselors available to inmates who want to learn — so extremists move in and teach a radical theology.

The report says state and local authorities are too cash-strapped to prevent this, or even keep track of it. The study cited several high-profile terrorists who became radicalized while behind bars, including British shoe bomber Richard Reid.
