Who exactly does former Judge Jeanine Pirro, a host on Fox News Channel, think is the biggest threat to the United States during the entire history of the Republic?
If you said Nazi Germany, Imperial Japan, China, Iran, or any host of other threats, you would be wrong.
During a segment on her show Justice with Judge Jeanine Pirro this weekend, the outspoken Judge Jeanine Pirro said ISIS — also known as the Islamic State — was the United States’ “single biggest threat in her 200-year history.”
According to a Mediaite report, Jeanine Pirro’s ISIS comment was clarified to say that she thought the terrorist group was a bigger threat to America than World War I, World War II, and the attacks of September 11, 2001.
In discussing the vulnerabilities of the United States and attacking the plan presented to the nation by President Barack Obama on how to challenge ISIS, Jeanine Pirro brought up a recent incident where a fence jumper was able to not only scale the White House fence, but also made it into the presidential mansion. President Obama and his daughters had just left minutes earlier on Marine One for a trip to Camp David, Maryland, for the weekend. Had he just been a few minutes earlier, there could have been an even more serious security incident or a different story to write today.
But Jeanine Pirro’s ISIS discussion went there, and this is what she had to say, per Mediaite.
“Everything I’ve been telling you for a month is accurate. You need to think September 11th, 2001. You need to remember what it felt like then. Don’t sit there and think that government has you covered. Hell, the White House itself and its perimeter were penetrated twice in the last 24 hours.”
Because of the lax security, Jeanine Pirro said ISIS could not be stopped by the United States government.
“If our government were listening, our borders would be closed. If our government were listening, we’d be bombing ISIS nonstop. And if they were listening, our president would be following the advice of the military experts united on the issue of boots on the ground. But instead, our president thinks he knows more than the military experts, a disagreement highlighted this week and virtually unseen in American history. And if our government were listening, we would never have gotten out of Iraq the way we did.”
