Who Funds Terrorism?

You do.

Your tax dollars at work, ladies and gentlemen.  From the Boston Herald.com:

The Tsarnaev family, including the suspected terrorists and their parents, benefited from more than $100,000 in taxpayer-funded assistance -- a bonanza ranging from cash and food stamps to Section 8 housing from 2002 to 2012, the Herald has learned.

"The breadth of the benefits the family was receiving was stunning," said a person with knowledge of documents handed over to a legislative committee today.

I argued in my last post that prosecutors should not rush into a behind-closed-doors deal with Tsarnaev to drop the death penalty in exchange for his information (if any). I now feel more confident than before in my advice, since it would seem that such relevant information as there may be can be easily obtained at the nearby welfare office.

Hopefully, the decision to grant asylum to this "family" will be the catalyst to long-needed reform. It is ill-conceived, rife with fraud, and endangers the security of our country.
