Can we please get back to English instead of weird shit like "virtue signaling" where it's unclear whether its mention means an insult, irony or a quest for a "look at me" award?
people who like to hang out with ISIS
ISIL/Daash may want it pretend they do but ISIL is not actually running a country. They are one of the smaller rebel groups in Syria and Iraq. Being in the same area as a thinly spread bunch of criminals does not also make you are criminal, especially if you are one of the people actively fighting these criminals, such as the Kurdish groups that we provide military aid to. Those are the sort of people who will be visiting the USA and they are the sort of people who have already had a lot of problems with travel bans. Did you miss the disputes where the Pentagon had to get involved over the first travel ban? It was over people who were working for them from the same areas covered by this new bit of security theatre.
but it would at least flag some of them.
I doubt it. This is just another example of "something must be done" - spinning wheels to show that there is action but not actually going anywhere.
It's just going to piss off a lot of people and make Bin Laden's ghost laugh at how even the people who like the USA enough to actually want to visit are being encouraged to hate it by little Hitlers on border duty.
Load them up with tantalizing information that wastes a ton of investigation time
Your time gets wasted a lot as well answering questions.
As an (old) example Steve Jackson Games employees had a lot of trouble over the "GURPS Cyberpunk" game rules after a Secret Service raid despite it being extremely obvious fantasy/SF (1990, so the computer you are using today would have been wild SF let alone cyberpunk stuff).
Your obvious fabrication, selectively quoted, could end up resulting in serious prison time for you if it looks like somebody can get a promotion for catching conspiritators.
Thinking about it as if you are going to be dealing with an ideal justice system is probably a very bad idea. I'd say expect less comic book more Kafka (or similar eastern european writer describing a corrupt justice system).
This would not be like the Italian mob where their presence was known and their ability to avoid prosecution was a thorn in the side of law enforcement
That was due to a single problem that was skirted around by such complicated things as odd new laws. Hoover.
The dirty little secret about why the IRS took down Capone is because they were the agency he did not bribe.
You're welcome to cite some of those sources that said the same thing before Sep 2015
1/ A large number of very vocal Bernie supporters.
2/ A very large number of Trump supporters.
3/ Any media outlet that reported what those supporters said, among reporting other things. Strafor would have clipped those articles.
4/ Fox news and the Murdoch press in general who were pushing for Trump early on.
Even the London (UK) Times and "The Australian" were reporting on Trump and Sanders in mid 2015.
driving a car across either of those cities
Especially because cars still have problems to cross at least 20 miles of sea, and a bridge does not exist.
Twenty miles of sea inside Paris? That's in-Seine.
neither of them are serious text editors for power users.
No but it's a good example of drastic changes to a functioning piece of software that leave some users unimpressed.
Being able to see the future that others can't
Others saw the future and they relayed the message. Your local newspaper would have more employees than the 100 that Stratfor reported as their peak staffing level.
You mean you didn't *know* she was off making lots of little phone companies?
