The threat of ISIS in America is being reported more as news reports show what the terrorist organization is planning to do to the American people. However, as the threats increase on social media, the Homeland Security continue to deny any real threat to the nation.
According to an article by Fox News, a law enforcement bulletin warned that Islamic State fighters have increased calls for “lone wolves” to attack U.S. soldiers in recent months. This includes the subject of this article which was given out through a tweet. The call to slaughter military personnel will be continued until future orders state otherwise.
Fox News takes question to this claim with the following statement from Peter Boogaard, a spokesman for the Department of Homeland Security, telling FoxNews.com that
“there is no credible intelligence at this time to suggest that there is an active plot by (ISIS) to carry out an attack in the United States.”
On another occasion the Department of Homeland Security made a statement that such “lone wolf” killings might increase if the U.S. strikes in the Middle East.
“These threats will most likely increase should the U.S. or its allies attack the Islamic State of Iraq and Sham (ISIS) in Syria or Iraq.”
It has also been reported that it isn’t hard to find someone’s address or personal information as explained in a tweet by a British jihadist encouraging radicals still living in the West.
“You could literally search for soldiers, find their town, photos of them, look for address in Yellowbook or something. Then show up and slaughter them.”
Breitbart also reported on this in which they utilized the recent news of a Rochester, New York man accused of recruiting people to join ISIS, which was reported by The Inquisitr earlier this week. They also reported that the Obama Administration continues to claim the Islamic State poses no threat to the homeland, but the threats against our soldiers on our soil, not just serving abroad, may appear immediate.
As HuffPost reports, Americans are panicking whilst the experts are disagreeing.
What do you think about this threat to U.S. military personnel on the homeland, in the cross hairs of ISIS?
