ISIS In Ohio: Christopher Cornell Claims ISIS In Almost All States [Jailhouse Interview]

Tara Dodrill

ISIS is in Ohio and nearly all the other 49 states in America, according to accused terrorist Christopher Lee Cornell. The Cincinnati area man is accused of planning terrorist attacks in the United States. During a recent interview with an Ohio television station, Christopher Cornell also said that if he had not bee arrested, he would have shot President Barack Obama in the head.

Christopher Cornell was being held in a Kentucky jail when he called WXIX-TV Fox 19 in Cincinnati and confessed to being a member of ISIS and uttered his plans to attack America from within and to assassinate U.S. officials. Fox 19 aired part of the Christopher Lee Cornell interview on Friday evening, just several hours after the alleged ISIS terrorist's lawyer attempted to persuade the court that doing so would violate Cornell's "right to a fair trial."

"I would have put it to Obama's head, I would have pulled the trigger, then I would unleash more bullets on the Senate and House of Representative members, and I would have attacked the Israeli embassy and various other buildings. They might say I'm a terrorist, but you know we see American troops as terrorists as well, coming to our land, stealing our resources and killing our people, raping our women. We're more organized than you think."

The Ohio ISIS suspected terrorist also had this to say during the Fox 19 News interview.

"Talking about how we should raise Jihad in America. We should form groups and alliances with the Islamic State. When I say groups, I mean what you would call sleeper cells. What do I think is coming? Many things. There will be many, many attacks. Like I said, we are ready for the battle over the Capitol. We are pretty strong. Yes, yes. In every state like I said. We're in Texas. We're in Ohio. We're in New York City. We're in Washington, DC. We're in every single state you can name, just about."

Do you think ISIS sleeper cells are present in nearly all 50 states and pose an immediate and credible threat to life as we know it in America?
