The possibility of the ISIS terrorist group attacking America has Senator Jim Inhofe claiming that ISIS’ WMD capabilities may include developing a bomb big enough to destroy a U.S. city.
In a related report by The Inquisitr, even Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda apparently think ISIS is too wicked and before the infamous al Qaeda leader was killed he was discussing disavowing any ties with the ISIS terrorist group. The Islamic terrorist group is now the richest in the world and apparently the best organized since it’s believed that ISIS sleeper cells are allegedly planning a large scale terror attack within the United States.
The full extent of ISIS’ WMD capabilities have been debated by the experts ever since it was revealed that the ISIS in Iraq had uncovered Saddam Hussein’s WMD stockpiles. The ISIS terrorist group even managed to recover nuclear materials in addition to chemical weapons secreted in different locations throughout Iraq. But many experts concluded that ISIS should not have the expertise necessary to create even a dirty bomb, never mind a full functioning WMD like a nuclear weapon. It was even believed that finding Iraq’s WMD stockpiles may actually pose more of a danger to the Islamic fighters themselves since it was assumed they could hurt themselves in the process of attempting to make a functioning WMD.
Regardless, the ISIS terrorist group has begun making threats targeted at America, even going so far as to claim they’ll plant their black flag on the White House and issuing bomb threats against President Obama. Oklahoma Republican Sen. Jim Inhofe is warning that the ISIS terrorist group may be attempting to develop a weapon capable of blowing up a major city in the United States:
“We’re in the most dangerous position we’ve ever been in as a nation. They’re crazy out there, and they’re rapidly developing a method of blowing up a major U.S. city, and people just can’t believe that’s happening. [President Obama is] going to have to come up with something that we’re going to do because they’re holding another hostage in place and the problem is, the president says all these things and he never does them.”
The Department of Homeland Security also recently issued a statement discussing the possibility of an ISIS terrorist attack in America:
“ISIL members and supporters will almost certainly continue to use social media platforms to disseminate their English-language violent extremist messages. Although we remind first responders that content not explicitly calling for violence may be constitutionally protected, we encourage awareness of media advocating violent extremist acts in particular locations or naming particular targets, to increase our ability to identify and disrupt potential Homeland threats. We urge state and local authorities to promptly report suspicious activities related to homeland plotting and individuals interested in traveling to overseas conflict zones, such as Syria or Iraq, to fight with foreign terrorist organizations.”
Texas Governor Rick Perry has also been warning the nation that members of the ISIS terrorist group could sneak across the Mexican border because the illegal immigrant crisis has kept so many border patrol agents busy. An Osama bin Laden impersonator recently made that point by making a video showing himself sneaking across the U.S. border undetected while dressed as a terrorist. Both the Pentagon and Mexican authorities dismissed the possibility that ISIS agents are operating inside of Mexico.
