Islamic State Recruits In The US


It is hard to fathom the allure that terrorist groups can have on people. The recruitment efforts of ISIS in the U.S. has been described as unprecedented and last year, a record number of Americans were arrested for ISIS-related activities, including a 19-year-old from Morganton.
