When London Mayor Sadiq Khan appeared on “Good Morning Britain” Tuesday morning and admitted that “just over half” of the 400 British residents who went abroad to train with Middle Eastern terror groups are now back in London, he probably wished Piers Morgan had taken a day off.
Because in the wake of yet another terrorist attack, neither Morgan nor his co-host, Susanna Reid, were about to let Khan, London’s first Muslim mayor, off the hook.

Reid asked Khan why the U.K. was letting people who “potentially fought against our troops” back in the country.
“How are we letting people back into the UK – who haven’t just been trained, they’ve actually fought, potentially fought against our troops,” Reid asked. “…out of all the thousands of people that we’re concerned about, surely those who have actually gone to fight are the biggest risk.”
“Where are they?” demanded Morgan. “You’re the mayor!”
Khan’s only response was to insist that it “doesn’t make sense for the government to be cutting resources.”
And when Morgan asked why Khan can’t at least have the police track the people “who [have] come back from a war zone, who [are] in London – I want them followed,” Khan again responded with the resources excuse.
“What could be a bigger priority than people coming back from a Syrian battlefield with intent to harm British citizens?” Morgan asked. “Why is it not the number one priority. Why are these people just allowed to come back in in the first place and then the London mayor doesn’t appear to know where any of them are? I mean, no disrespect to you, but where are they?”
Khan then switched gears to make perhaps his most stunning claim yet:
“The three men responsible for the attack on Saturday night hadn’t come from overseas. They were, for all intents and purposes, integrated into our way of life.”
If that’s “integration,” I’d hate to see what non-integration looks like!
You can’t make it up!!! He never answered the question as to why they’re being let back in. Resign immediately

To this very moment, the only person @SadiqKhan has tried to ban from London is the President of the United States. Jihadis welcome.
