Counterterror Chief: “Confrontational” children might be terrorists

In a speech at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, White House counterterrorism and Homeland Security adviser Lisa Monaco said that parents need to be on the lookout for warning signs that their children might be a possible terrorist.

According to CBS, Monaco said the following:

“What kinds of behaviors are we talking about?” she asked. “For the most part, they’re not related directly to plotting attacks. They’re more subtle. For instance, parents might see sudden personality changes in their children at home—becoming confrontational.”


Below is a video of her going into further detail about her thoughts on terrorism. Go to 4:45 to hear her elaborate about how parents can pick up warning signs in their kids, such as becoming more “confrontational.”

Beware, citizen. If your seventeen-year-old boy suddenly says he wants to stay up later then ten o’ clock because he can, or stay out late to ostensibly hang out with a cute girl instead of doing mindless homework assignments, it means he’s really building bombs out of pressure cookers in the basement of some terrorist cell.

And libertarians are the ones who get accused of being paranoid conspiracy theorists?

I’m sorry. Has this woman ever been around a ten-year-old boy? Does she have any children? Can she recall a minute of her childhood? If becoming confrontational makes a kid a suspected terrorist, all boys between the ages of 12-18 are official terrorists.

  1. why the hosts of these TV shows don’t just bust up laughing over idiocy like this is beyond me. I guess that part of the job description is to not laugh in the face of your guest if he or she is a member of our elite class.
