The Chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security, Mike McCaul (R-TX) talks about the threat of ISIS and the American passport holders who have joined them in their plying their evil trade. He says the information that they have indicates there may be as many as 200 American passport holders presently engaged with the terrorist organization in the Middle East and acknowledges that Â they represent a serious threat to the American homeland when the return.
Rep McCaul cites a recent case where an American returned home and then went back to Syria where he became a suicide bomber. That suicide bombing could have taken place inside America.
Heâ€™s asked if it is time for the United States to follow the lead of Britain and raise their threat level. McCaul says he would encourage Obama to act in a similar manner but that itâ€™s more important to address the threat where it is now, and to deny them the opportunity to bring the terrorism to the United States.
He says with the release of this second video and the upcoming anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, the United States needs to be at a heightened state of alert. He then addresses the homegrown threat.
The Chairman seems a little unwilling to address specific threats, choosing to generalize and is hesitant to point a finger at the Obama regime for delaying when both Foley and Sotloff could have very likely been rescued and allowing ISIS to grow without American intervention. In fact, had Obama had his way, we would have been arming ISIS and very likely were through our facility in Benghazi.
ISIS and domestic terrorism are huge threats. The position of B. Hussein Obama within the White House as a facilitator, as well as his accomplice Jeh Johnson at Homeland Security, only serves to greatly magnify the risk to the American Homeland.
