    The group (The Islamic State) originated as Jama'at al-Tawhid wal-Jihad in 1999, which pledged allegiance to al-Qaeda in 2004. The group participated in the Iraqi insurgency, which had followed the March 2003 invasion of Iraq by Western forces. In January 2006, it joined other Sunni insurgent groups to form the Mujahideen Shura Council, which proclaimed the formation of the Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) in October 2006.

    Let's be very clear here about the timing and origin of the group now terrorizing the region. Obama's policies have certainly been beneficial to the group, but it was a Bush era development.

    All of it amid heightened fears of homegrown terrorism, inspired by the relentless calls for attacks from ISIS social media, focusing on the 4th of July holiday period and the Muslim holy days of Ramadan, which this year coincide.

    In Washington, security will be more visible than usual. Bulletins warn police around the country that ISIS has called for attacks on government employees, law enforcement, sporting events, and other big gatherings. And the FBI is stepping up arrests of people who’ve been under surveillance for months, suspected of plotting attacks here: ten arrests in the past two weeks.....snip~

    Some anxiety in high places, huh?
    Yeah I told my sister who's flying today to Dallas to leave extra time. The main airport hubs will probably take longer to get through and have higher security than normal.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    They are doing the same here Ockham. Increased visible security. Dogs on display too.

    That Hotel attack in Tunisia and the Uptick on the chatter to hit all infidels during Ramadan....has our people a bit worried. They have increased attacks since Ramadan began.

    Still this was the first mention of Ramadan and the 4th coinciding this year. Yet no specific attack called out. Some might want to wake up to the fact that AQ or Daesh. Might have learned a lesson and will wait to take credit for anything that happens. Rather than tip their hand.

    This is the most specific info I have seen on what the threat is-cops, military, public officials all of whom are likely to be in public for the 4th of july weekend. All from the group that Obama said wasn't a threat.

    Doing what we can to stop what we can, when we can? Egads, that is painting with a vague and very broad brush.

    Maybe an example is stopping Al Quaeda? Stop what we can even though our boys created what we are now trying to stop?

    Pound sand? Golly, what about believing every single thing one is told by mendacious folk, without asking a question, ever? Same thing?

    Happy Fourth.

    Anxiety in high places, already thwarted attacks, and there are posters in this thread who claim its a conspiracy, or that we shouldn't know about it.

    Well at least the Feds admitted the calls for attacks by Daesh and its social media, which were focusing on the 4th of July and its coinciding with Ramadan. They didn't mention that at first.
