    “There have been Twitter, social media exchanges among ISIL adherents across the globe speaking about that as a possibility,” Taylor told Sen. John McCain (R., Ariz.) in response to a question about “recent reports on Twitter and Facebook of messages that would urge infiltration into the U.S. across our southwestern border.”

    BUT we've been assured that the border is protected more than ever and there is absolutely no foreseeable threat from IS here in the homeland.

    That's not correct, you may not have though. And who are you talking about taking at their word?

    Do we really need a Washington bureaucrat to confirm? My first reaction to this DHS statement is: "No **** Sherlock". What's next.... are we going to get an official confirmation that water is wet and deserts are dry?

    I see, because you had never heard of ISIS, they were a non entity. Have you noticed the condition of Libya lately, I understand if you'd prefer not to look at Libya, but the puppet government installed by the West hasn't perfect control. That's another thing that happened in 2011. Again, and again, Hussein, Mubarak, Gaddafi and Assad didn't allow these groups operational room. It's US policy for years that has delivered us the fine mess we have, and you want it to be ONLY Obama's fault.

    Terror attacks have been happening repeatedly in the US with the DC snipers, Fort Hood murders and the Boston Marathon killings getting the most publicity. There have also been several unsuccessful attempts. This is how the jihadists will attack. One person will kill one, three or thirty, it doesn't really matter. We have seen the same thing happening in the UK as well. And each time this happens, if the media reports it, we call them temporarily insane, or workplace violence, etc. But of course there will be more of this and, I believe, it will increase.

    You have to think like a terrorist in order to understand how they can defeat their enemies. They certainly aren't going to try it through traditional means.

    Here's a list of some of the killings in the US since 9/11, though I don't think honor killings should be included. Nonetheless you get the idea. List of Islamic Terror Attacks in America
    Ok, so IS isn't a direct threat to the US mainland and the shootings we've had at schools, church's, malls and theatres are really being carried out by militant Islamic groups. Ok.

    Your statement is amazingly self contradictory, Montecresto. On the one hand you credit US policy support for Hussein, Mubarak, Gaddafi and Assad because these leaders denied these groups "operational room", and then blame this same policy for the "Fine mess we have". Which is it? Seems to me that the support for these dictators, by your argument, was responsible for the lack of Islamic Radical proliferation in those states...

    But then we come to your statement that it isn't all Obama's fault... OK, well, let's look at that. By your argument you can blame Bush for removing Hussein, sure, but then we had it under control there when we had troops in place... who took all the troops out of Iraq? And Mubarack, Gaddafi? Surely you aren't blaming their ouster on anyone but Obama, right? Assad is the next Obama target.. and he is choosing to fight ISIS, a group that was born of the US armed Syrian rebellion, by... arming the Syrian rebellion.
