CNN has a detailed report on the travels of four ISIS operatives who made their way from Raqqa, Syria to Austria posing as refugees last year.

Escaping a hellhole and making it all the way to Paris and then blowing oneself up.
The muzzie mind is incomprehensible.
I disagree! It's in our compass.
Probably should execute guys like these when they catch them.
