I’ve talked about how ISIS is targeting Americans through Twitter, but even more terrifying is what ISIS can do to reach America beyond cyberspace. ISIS has only gotten stronger and more powerful – now al-Qaeda has announced its support after previously disavowing them – and their capabilities grow by the day.
We are living with the devastating consequences of reelecting a weak president who recklessly and prematurely pulled out of Iraq, turned a blind eye to the Middle East, and dismissed ISIS as the “jayvee team.”
Well, Mr. President, while you were out vowing to “maintain vigilance” against ISIS out on the golf course you may have missed the news from your Defense Department that the jayvee team has metastasized into the terrorist Dream Team:
The sophistication, wealth and military might of Islamic State militants represent a major threat to the United States that may surpass that once posed by al-Qaeda, U.S. military leaders said on Thursday.
“They are an imminent threat to every interest we have, whether it’s in Iraq or anywhere else,” Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel told reporters at the Pentagon. …
Asked if the hardline Sunni Muslim organization posed a threat to the United States comparable to that of the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, Hagel said it was “as sophisticated and well-funded as any group we have seen.”
“They are beyond just a terrorist group. They marry ideology, a sophistication of … military prowess. They are tremendously well-funded. This is beyond anything we’ve seen.”
Meanwhile, as the President finalizes his plans to give amnesty to millions more illegals, Jihadists are in a prime position to take advantage of the Obama-made border crisis. Breitbart TV reports that Rep. Ted Poe (R-TX), who sits on the House Judiciary Committee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security, has said that ISIS and Mexican drug cartels are “talking to each other.” Gov. Rick Perry echoed that concern during a speech at the Heritage Foundation on Thursday, saying terrorists could be crossing the border.
ISIS teaming up with al-Qaeda and the drug cartels? That’s a recipe for a horrific terrorist attack! The question is, at this point does Obama have the ability – or will – to do anything to stop what he’s started?
