US lawmaker: Europe security gaps fuel 'jihadi superhighway'

House Homeland Security Committee chairman Michael McCaul duinrg a hearing on September 17, 2014 in Washington, DCEuropean security shortcomings have created a “jihadi superhighway” allowing countless battle-hardened Islamic extremists to return from Syria, a top US lawmaker warned Wednesday. “Security gaps in Europe -— and Turkey in particular -— make it easier for them to return to the West undetected,” House Homeland Security Committee chairman Michael McCaul said in an op-ed for Time Magazine. He pointed to reports that 1,000 fighters monthly, including many westerners, were pouring into the conflict zone to join the Islamic State extremist group. “Extremists have already managed to exploit Europe’s security gaps and transform it into a jihadi superhighway,” he added.
