While Europe is kicking in doors and conducting raids on a daily basis in locations where suspected ISIS operatives are housed, the only sound that can be heard from the Obama administration is the sound of crickets.
There is no “specific and credible threat” in the United States at this time from ISIS, House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul said Monday, three days after a coordinated set of attacks stunned Paris on Friday night, but still there are active investigations ongoing in all 50 states.
“We’ve arrested over 70 ISIS followers in the United States over the last year,” the Texas Republican told Fox News’ “Fox and Friends” program. “We have active investigations in all 50 states and over 900 active cases against potential ISIS followers.”
And while there is not a specific threat, said McCaul, he takes all leads seriously, saying there has been some Iraqi intelligence in which threats against the U.S. and Europe were discussed. .
“We want to stop that storm from hitting the United States and the homeland,” said McCaul.
