ISIS In West Virginia: America’s Fusion Centers Report ISIS Investigation Ongoing In All 50 States
ISIS terrorists may be in West Virginia. Investigators at the Fusion Intelligence Center in Charleston are reportedly researching classified information related to the whereabouts of Islamic State militants on a daily basis.
During an interview with Mountain State news outlet WCHSTV, the intelligence center staffers refused to get into specifics regarding how many ISIS militants could be in West Virginia, or the exact locations where the terrorists may have been spotted.

Fusion Intelligence Center staffers did reveal that ISIS is recruiting and training people “close enough to be concerned.” The center has also reportedly been “monitoring” individuals with Islamic State ties that have passed through West Virginia.

Fusion centers were created under the arm of the Department of Justice’s Global Justice Information Sharing Initiative and the Criminal Intelligence Coordinating Council. The centers are supposed to be an “effective and efficient mechanism to exchange information and intelligence” for fighting crime and terrorism. Staff at the centers merge information from multiple sources as a part of the National Criminal Intelligence Sharing Plan.

“Our role is receiving information,” Fusion Intelligence Center Director Thomas Kirk said.
“You’re looking for things to authenticate what is the key difference between this one and the last one. The texture of the sand, the type of rocks, the way the wind blows, the garb that’s being worn,” the director added in response to work investigators are conducting in relation to comparing ISIS beheading videos.

Kirk also said that if citizens think that journalist Steven Sotloff will be the last American to die at the hands of the Islamic State, we should “brace” ourselves.
“There are areas in the United States that are not too far from here, that have very large populations that are being recruited for ISIS right now. There are people associated with Al Qaeda, there are people on the Terrorist Watch List who travel through West Virginia, whether it’s through the airports or through the roads,” the Fusion Intelligence Center director added.
ISIS militants may be using the Texas Border to gain entry to the United States. As previously reported by The Inquistir, Infowars journalist Joe Biggs recently dressed as an Islamic State terrorist and walked across the Texas Border from Mexico after simulating a beheading. Although Biggs carried a faux severed head and stood in full ISIS attire in America, he was not spotted or stopped.
President Obama stated during his ISIS speech last week that he wanted the Ebola outbreak to be deemed a matter of national security so more could be done to stop the illness from reaching pandemic status and killing millions of Americans. Those who think President Obama is not doing enough to combat ISIS have said that border security should also be considered a national security measure in order to protect United States citizens right now.
What do you think about the possibility of ISIS in America and the Texas Border issue?
