They are/were young ignorant fools, mostly because we allow parents in the country to keep their children ignorant and foolish. As women, they were victims of the ISIS "state" more than anything else. I think it's ironic that the party in charge , the GOP, pretends to be the "Christian" party, but the last thing they actually expouse are Christian ideals, like forgiveness. I think they should be allowed back in, perhaps under a kind of house arrest, under the condition that they travel the country to speak in front of Muslim audiences and share their story of how horrible their experiences were, and be a warning and learning experience to others.

These woman are only sorry because ISIS has been defeated and things didn't turn out how they hoped. What did they think was going to happen? ISIS would take over the middle east and this wonderful Caliphate would thrive forever? Idiots. You don't get to come back with your tail between your legs saying sorry. They can stay there.

I'm sorry but I dont believe they should be allowed to come home, they should be in prison, their kids should be safe but if we are giving decade long sentences for a little bit of weed we should be incarcerating terrorists.

Cassie yes but they need to be back in the country in order to be tried and incarcerated.
