ISIS “Beyond Anything We Have Ever Seen”

Standard

ISIS has an “Apocalyptic End-of-Days Strategic Vision”

US Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel issued a stern warning about ISIS in a joint press conference.  Hagel said ISIS were “beyond anything we have ever seen” and saying they represent “an imminent threat to every interest we have, whether it’s in Iraq, or anywhere else.”  Hagel added that they are “just as organized and well-funded as any group we have ever seen.”

Hagel talked about how ISIS can’t be confined to Iraq and defeated there, because the terrorist group has major roots in Syria as well.  Something that wasn’t mentioned in the press conference was the US’s failed attempt to rescue journalist James Foley, who was beheaded in a video posted to social media by ISIS.
