Reuters reported that ISIS has warned the United States it will attack Americans “in any place” if the raids hit its terrorist fighters.
ISIS put out a new video which allegedly has a video of the beheading of American journalist, Steven Sotloff, with a statement in English – “we will drown all of you in blood.” Before he died, Sotloff said he is “paying the price” for U.S. intervention. ISIS has threatened to kill American David Haines next. [Updated at 16:31 EST]
Heartbreakingly, Steven Sotloff’s mother recently begged for his life on TV.
The U.S. has been conducting air strikes targeting ISIS that helped Kurds take back the Mosul dam and several towns that had been lost to ISIS. ISIS wants them to stop or they will make us pay.
That should be our cue to go after them full bore and destroy them before they destroy us but Obama will wait until we are attacked. He leads from behind if you can call that leading.
An ISIS propaganda trading group posted these words on Twitter: “The U.S.-Mexican border is now open, large numbers of people crossing.”
The Texas Department of Public Safety has given this warning:
A review of ISIS social media messaging during the week ending August 26 shows that militants are expressing an increased interest in the notion that they could clandestinely infiltrate the southwest border of US, for terror attack … Social media account holders believed to be ISIS militants and propagandists have called for unspecified border operations, or they have sought to raise awareness that illegal entry through Mexico is a viable option … The identities of persons operating these accounts cannot be independently verified; however the accounts were selected for monitoring based on several indications that they have been used by actual ISIS militants for propaganda purposes and collectively reach tens of thousands of followers… One account was verified as belonging to an individual located in Mosul, Iraq.
Last week, Judicial Watch posted an FBI warning about an imminent terrorist threat on our southern border. The State Department came out quickly to deny it but if you believe a word they say, you are probably too trusting.
Tweets by ISIS have called for “border infiltration.” ISIS knows the border is wide open. The only ones who don’t seem to know the border is open are Barack Obama and the Democrats in Congress and his administration with few exceptions.
One ISIS Twitter account holder, stated that the time was right for such an action because “the US-Mexican border is now open large numbers of people crossing”.
ISIS has drones, a couple billion dollars and they’re not stupid.
Barack Obama had his daily briefing yesterday but he has had them daily and for at least a year, he has been told of the grave seriousness of the ISIS threat daily, and he has done next-to-nothing. While ISIS was out in the open with their stolen arms and trucks, he did nothing. He even told them he has no strategy to deal with them.
He’s in Estonia now to reassure our allies. That reassurance and two and one-quarter dollars will get you on a New York subway.
