Authorities discovered a compound in New Mexico where a group of adults were teaching kids how to be school shooters. Eleven children were rescued and the remains of another were recovered. Rifles, pistols, and ammunition were also discovered on the property, along with a shooting range and a couple of makeshift living quarters. The kids were dressed in rags and starving to death.

If this does not qualify as jaw-dropping news, I'm not sure what does. You would expect it to be the lead on every news broadcast and the top story on every news website. You would expect it to be the number one trending topic across social media. You would expect it to be driving the national conversation. But it is not attracting that level of interest from practically anyone. If the terrorists were Christian fundamentalists or white supremacists, you can bet the reaction would be quite a bit more explosive. As it happens, however, the primary culprit goes by the name Siraj Ibn Wahhaj. Two of the other adults involved are named Hujrah Wahhaj and Subhannah Wahhaj. They are, as their names seem to indicate, Muslim.

In fact, Wahhaj's father is an infamous Imam in New York, leader of The Muslim Alliance in North America, and allegedly tied to the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. He was never charged with any crime in that case, but he did take the stand in defense of Omar Abdel-Rahman, the mastermind of the attack. He's been on the government's radar for 25 years, yet somehow his son managed to set up a terrorist training camp in an American state.
