Elation in Harlem The Next Left

Two sixteen-year-old Muslim girls who were arrested and held for six weeks in a Pennsylvania detention center are being released. And as far as I understand no formal charges have been raised against them.

They were initially called would-be suicide bombers who posed "an imminent threat to the security of the United States." Now, one is returning back to school and the other is returning to Bangladesh with her family. HERE.
