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.”
Christopher Lee Cornell had this to say about his plans before being arrested as a suspected ISIS member.
“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.”
During the interview with the Cincinnati television station, Christopher Cornell identified himself as a Muslim multiple times. When asked why he wanted to conduct ISIS terror attacks in the United States, Cornell added, “Because of “the continued American aggression against our people and the fact that America, specifically President Obama, wants to wage war against Islamic State.” The suspected Ohio ISIS terrorist also said, “I’m with the Islamic State. I’m very dedicated to establish the Sharia in America, to wage war on the kafr [Islamic term for unbeliever] and raise the word of Allah above all. I’m so dedicated that I risked my whole life.”

As previously reported by the Inquistir, Chris Cornell was planning to detonate pipe bombs and then open fire of panicked and fleeing staffers and lawmakers, according to court documents filed in conjunction with the FBI arrest. The alleged ISIS terrorist first caught the attention of the FBI radar late last year after an informant alerted the federal agency to alleged U.S. capitol bomb plot. Cornell had reportedly created Twitter accounts under the alias, Raheel Mahrus Ubaydah. The Cincinnati man had allegedly purchased 600 rounds of ammunition and two M-15 semi-automatic rifles to carry out ISIS attacks.
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.”
If convicted on the charges levied against him, which include the attempted murder of government employees and officials and solicitation to commit a crime of violence, Christopher Cornell faces up to 20 years in prison.
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?
