Public Enemy Number One has a new name:
The Islamic State terror group’s effort to inspire troubled Americans to extremism is a greater threat to the U.S. than an external attack from Al Qaeda, the FBI director said Wednesday.
FBI Director James Comey told an audience at the Aspen Security Forum that the group, commonly known as ISIS, has influenced a significant number of Americans through a year-long campaign on social media urging Muslims who can’t travel to the Middle East to “kill where you are.”
Twitter handles affiliated with the group have more than 21,000 English-language followers worldwide, Comey said, adding that thousands of those could be U.S. residents.
Remember: Our Commander-in-Chief derided these guys as “jayvee” while letting the group fester and grow for a year before finally launching a halfhearted airstrike campaign.
Whatever you might think about the Iraq War, it did result in the removal of Saddam Hussein, the establishment (for a while) of a relatively peaceful and democratic government, and Muammar Gaddafi surrendering his surprisingly advanced nuclear program.
Obama’s pullout from Iraq and his destruction of the Gaddafi regime has allowed ISIS to spread and morph into a threat greater than al Qaeda.
Is it still racist to question his judgement?
