    CNN: some of the Kenya mall attackers are from the US

    At least three of the attackers responsible for a reign of terror on an upscale Kenyan mall, killing at least 68, are from the United States, CNN reports.

    CNN’s Sara Pratley, senior director of coverage at the news network, broke the news on Twitter Sunday afternoon. CNN also reported the news on television.

    If this proves to be so, this could be a major problem.

    I don't see why this would make it any more of a problem than it already is.

    "From" as in born here, or "from" as in "have US citizenship". If the latter, not as big a deal as the former, quite.

    Can't wait for the United States to take justice into their own hands somehow. Nothing like the big O acting as the judge and executioner whenever he feels like it.

    I don't see why that distinction would matter either.

    Having native-born Americans committing terrorist acts on foreign soil could prove somewhat problematic for the State Department.

    For whom? Idiots who try to attribute responsibility for individuals' actions to an entire nation?

    Born here means they are actual Americans, who grew up in our culture and society and under our laws, who nonetheless decided to go to Africa, take up an extremist cause, and commit mass murder of innocent citizens of another country. That's bad.


    "Possess US citizenship" may mean they grew up in a different culture or nation and that their ties to the USA are more tenuous than native-born-and-raised.

    I suppose one could argue the difference is subtle, but I think it is significant.

    CNN has gotten so much wrong so many times they have lost all creditability so it is best to wait for some news organization with a little more creditably than them like the National Enquirer
