The rambling interview of an American member of ISIS who was arrested on charges of supporting the group last year seems to be more and more true the more we learn about the terror group’s operations in the United States.
We have already seen attacks associated with ISIS in the United States, most notable the attacks in San Bernardino, CA and the attack on a Draw Muhammed event in Texas.
On top of that, according to reports, there are over 900 active inquiries and investigations tied to ISIS activity in the US right now.
According to Controversial Times:
In the interview, Cornell issued some chilling warnings:
“I got orders from the brothers overseas because I’m with the Islamic State. My brothers over there, in Syria and Iraq, gave me specific orders to carry out jihad in the west, so I did so.”
“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.”
What was dismissed at the time as the ramblings of a disturbed man seems to be a chilling warning for the future.
