Harvard study says poor Muslims less attracted to terror, but who needs facts when you have Obama?

So much for the State Department’s belief that all ISIS needs are some good jobs to keep them from beheading people.

“A 2004 study by a Harvard economist seems to contradict that claim finding that the terror risk is not significantly hire for poorer countries,” Carlson said. “And then a 2012 study in Pakistan reached a similar conclusion saying ‘Pakistan’s urban poor are more exposed to the negative externalities of militant violence and may in fact be less supportive of the groups.’”
