Report: Islamic State Already in America

The Islamic State has already arrived in America, according to a former CIA operative and other U.S. intelligence sources.

On the same day a second American journalist was beheaded by the Islamic State terror organization, a former CIA operative says sleeper cells from the group already exist in the USA.

Steve Sotloff, an American journalist with Israeli citizenship who hid both his Judaism and his second passport from the Islamic State terrorists who kidnapped him, nevertheless was beheaded on Tuesday as a “second message to America” to stop air strikes in Iraq.

Many Americans — and perhaps some American leaders as well — may believe the terrorists are contained in the Middle East. But CNN national security analyst Bob Baer, a former CIA operative, said “The Lead” Tuesday that nothing could be further from the truth.

The “people who collect tactical intelligence on the ground, day-to-day – and this isn’t Washington – but people collecting this stuff say they’re here, ISIS is here, they’re capable of striking,” Baer warned.

Intelligence agents are monitoring the activities of suspected Islamic State terrorists who cross into the U.S. through the southern border from Mexico.

But others, he warned, are American citizens who flew to Syria to fight with “the resistance,” and have already returned.

“They can’t prove it. They’re waiting to get enough intelligence to actually run them in. And then there’s the unknown, of how many people have come back they’re not even aware of,” Baer told CNN. “The people who do this for a living are very alarmed,” he said.

U.S. intelligence officials warned last month the Islamic State organization has been pushing to establish cells outside its strongholds in Iraq and Syria.

Among its targets have been cities in Europe, as well as countries in the Middle East.

“We have seen an expansion of its external terrorism ambitions,” a senior U.S. intelligence official told reporters at a Washington, DC briefing on August 14. It was estimated there are now more than 10,000 fighters in the ranks of the Islamic State.

In addition, since the group seized Iraq’s second largest city, Mosul in June, it has significantly swelled its coffers with cash due to also having conquered the nearby oil field and the electricity-generating Mosul Dam. The terror group currently holds five oil fields under its control which provide funding for its operations.

The Islamic State has proved extremely attractive to foreign fighters of every stripe, and thousands are streaming to Syria and Iraq to fight alongside its forces. Among them are many who hold Western passports – including those from the United States and Europe.

After rigorous training, some then return, with orders to start their own terrorist cells at home.

  2. And this will have a devastating result on Muslims here whether they support terrorism or not. Many Americans would as soon shoot a Muslim as not.

  6. Cynthia Lang says:

    that’s so true, people are not taking the effort to differentiate between the extremist terrorist groups and the regular, day-to-day Muslims who just want the same stuff out of life as the rest of us

  7. John Campbell says:

    We should throw all islam out of the Western countrys send em back to were ever they came from u cant trust any of them

  8. Yes, I was thinking the same thing..in fact I am sure the UK is in the same boat..

  9. Ed Kaplan says:

    Never met at Muslim who would say he- she was ok with Jews.

  10. Everyone of us needs to rise up, sounding the alarm, warning the nations to awake out of their sleep and slumber, against a people so brutal, so bloodthirsty, wanting to rule the world with their sharia law. Brutally murdering any who doesn’t submit to their law. Do you think this is a game? Do you think these people aren’t serious? Do you think it won’t happen to you and your country? Wake up and rise up and stop these people. Reject their way of life, for only you can. Shalom everyone.

    R we really suprised?

  13. Susn Cohen says:

    what i don't understand is WHY we are allowing this to happen. WE, the people, can stop it by publicly showing the naysayers proof of the existence os terrorists in our country.
    Someone NEEDS to POST on SOCIAL MEDIA, a few of the stories that are public knowledge. MAybe some os these very young, very naive liberal do-gooders, will have an aha moment.
    They seem to believe what they are told. We must stop apologizing for morality and good and start acknowledging the consequences of their disappearance. It isn't just radical islam,but radical behaviors disguised as the norm. Drugs and sex are the seducers of American youth—-what prophylactics do they have to fend off the disease of society. What values can they turn to when leadership recognizes that public humiliation of 'the other' is a means to boost the ego. WE NEED TO STAND UP FOR THE GOOD in this battle of good and evil. It is not a game—it is real life and the good guys are getting killed!!!! WE NEED TO STOP THE MADNESS.

  14. And I bet that Obama has been a ‘sleeper’ for all these years until he was told to run for office. Run by ISIS.

  15. I’m sure they do and are supported by Obama

  16. They are 36 groups of these people from North to South , from East to West in America .

  17. People coexist and ignore, at least temporarily, that’s had Muslims and Christians murdering Jews. Some try to claim Jews have murdered them, but obviously not enough.

  18. Chaiya Eitan says:

    The current open border in the south of the United States is a 'welcome mat' for terrorists to enter!

  19. Thebi Li says:

    Well maybe they could ask the preident..maybe, just maybe hhappier than ever..

  20. Pas David says:

    Decisive and Firm action against anyone with a Jihadi Ideology is the only thing that will save the US and Europe. Stop immigration from Islamic countries. Do not let any citizen who has fought as a Jihadi to return. Firm and unapologetic action action citizens who support these Jihadis.

  21. Aldo Rocco says:

    TOO MUCH !!!! TO BELIEVE IT IS HAPPENING !!! STUPID GOVERNMENT !!

  22. James Mcgee says:

    we all need to wake up and if we don't there will be one of the worse devastation I our history

  23. Julie Dove says:

    Muslims should not be allowed in this country……Period!!!
