Around 400 ISIS-trained fighters are believed to have returned from war zones in Syria and Iraq.Meanwhile, Chris Matthews apparently doesn't know real news when he sees it:
Despite being on red alert for more attacks on home soil like today's carnage in Westminster, new statistics show the number of arrests, stop and searches, and examinations of suspected terrorists at ports and airports dropped in 2016 on the levels seen in 2015.
This comes at the same time that the number of people arrested on suspicion of plotting terror strikes on British soil has grown by eight per cent.
As Matthews speaks, a video plays in the background from the arena, and loud screams are heard as people on the scene navigate the aftermath of the attack. Matthews nevertheless quickly moved on to a more pressing matter.Finally, there's the usual false outrage:
“We’ll get the latest on that in a minute,” he said. “We begin however, with the shocking news in Washington tonight.”
That news, Trump asking the intelligence officials to dismiss media reports of alleged Russian collusion, actually took place months ago. Still, Matthews deemed it more important than a developing terrorist attack.

Some verified users are angry at the “racism and xenophobia” they’re seeing in response to the attack, which reports say was carried out by a suicide bomber.
