Former Democratic presidential candidate Wesley Clark told MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts that one way to fight lone-wolf style terror attacks inside the U.S. is to take “disloyal” or “radicalized” Americans like accused Chattanooga killer Mohammad Abdulazeez and put them in “camps” for “the duration of the conflict.” Transcript via The Intercept:
“if someone supported Nazi Germany at the expense of the United States, we didn’t say that was freedom of speech, we put him in a camp, they were prisoners of war.”
“If these people are radicalized and they don’t support the United States and they are disloyal to the United States as a matter of principle, fine. It’s their right and it’s our right and obligation to segregate them from the normal community for the duration of the conflict.”
