    ISIS PRESENT IN ALL 50 STATES, FBI DIRECTOR SAYS
    ABC7 I-Team Investigation

    CHICAGO (WLS) -- The ABC7 I-Team looked into ISIS terrorists in the United States- not just a smattering of potentially violent radicals, but terrorists present in Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Michigan and all 50 states.

    In less than two years, ISIS has gone from a terror start-up overseas to what FBI Director James Comey calls a "chaotic spider web" in the US, with young Muslim men being radicalized in Illinois and the 49 other states. Comey suggests ISIS uses social media like a job fair. That's how he says terrorists snagged three New York men facing ISIS charges.

    "Those people exist in every state. I have homegrown violent extremist investigations in every single state. Until a few weeks ago there was 49 states. Alaska had none which I couldn't quite figure out. But Alaska has now joined the group so we have investigations of people in various stages of radicalizing in all 50 states," Comey said.

    In Chicago, there are several current federal cases of teenagers being recruited online by ISIS, buying plane tickets to travel overseas; plans interrupted by U.S. counter-terrorism agents, in some instances at O'Hare Airport.

    In New York City Wednesday, the latest plot - to blow up Coney Island - is a scheme authorities say by three Brooklyn men now in federal custody....

    So was he asleep at the wheel, or are they fiendishly clever foes who will kill you all in your beds if the FBI doesn't get more funding?

    It appears he was on the J.O.B......how you looking now?



    Three men were charged on Wednesday with conspiring to support Islamic State, U.S. authorities announced. The two men also had expressed a willingness to carry out attacks on U.S. soil on behalf of Islamic State, according to the criminal complaint.

    All three men live in Brooklyn. Defense lawyers for the three men could not immediately be identified.....snip~

    Maybe Obama will confront ISIS, or mention radical Islam, when it spreads to all 57 states.

    Who handed the GOP its butt in 2008 and 2012? Any ideas on that?

    Lots of losers in the GOP don't like Obama, But none of them could beat him.




    It's easy to be a Monday morning quarterback. (Anyone can do that.) But getting out there on the field and playing the game is another story.

    If Obama's so bad, why couldn't the GOP beat him? Fill us in.

    We may have to raise the threat level from fuchsia to chartreuse.

    Wouldn't that be a kick in the butt.

    Voters get the government and the politicians they deserve. Blame or credit for Obama goes to the ignorance of the voters in both parties - nothing more or less.

    We're counting people who have looked at the ISIS twitter feed?
    Surely that's a stage, yes?
    I may be wrong.
