ISIS just made a claim that we were all fearing.Â The Islamic State published an article in this monthâ€™s Dabiq magazine purportedly written by kidnapped British photojournalist John Cantlie. Â In it, ISIS claims that they could easily smuggle a nuclear bomb into the United States through our very porous borders.
Cantlieâ€™s piece is titled, “the perfect storm”, he explains just how dangerous the situation really is.
From the Desert Herald:
ISIS, the jihadist group in Syria, Iraq and Libya, has claimed it could purchase a nuclear device and transport same to the United States, through a network of countries including Nigeria, up to Mexico. In its latest propaganda magazine, Dabiq, published two weeks ago, the group said the plan is workable the same way banned drugs are transported through West Africa to Western countries, saying it could even be easier with the presence of Boko Haram, the Nigeria-based group that recently pledged allegiance to ISIS.
ISIS also described the Nigerian Army as â€œan exhausted and smashed national army that is now in a virtual state of collapseâ€.
Currently, it said Boko Haram insurgents have taken control of much of Nigeria and their attacks are intensifying and pushing back the military.
That claim contradicts recent successes recorded by the Nigerian military which has recovered several towns seized by the militant group in the last.
In an op-ed piece titled, â€œThe Perfect Storm,â€ attributed to a kidnapped British photojournalist, John Cantlie, it said the terrorist organisation which started as a movement in Iraq has suddenly turned into a global phenomenon that the West and the democratic world as a whole is ill-equipped to deal with. Mr. Cantlie has appeared in many propaganda videos released by ISIS after he was kidnapped by the extremist group.
â€œNothing on this scale has happened this big or this quick before. Huge swathes of Pakistan, Nigeria, Libya, Yemen, and the Sinai Peninsula are all now united under the black flag of tawhÄ«d, gelled together as one by the Islamic State,â€ the piece said.
â€œPerhaps such a scenario is far-fetched but itâ€™s the sum of all fears for Western intelligence agencies and itâ€™s infinitely more possible today than it was just one year ago,â€ he writes.
â€œAnd if not a nuke, what about a few thousand tons of ammonium nitrate explosive? Thatâ€™s easy enough to make.â€
He says it is no secret that Isil are planning to attack America on a large scale.
â€œTheyâ€™re not going to mince about with two mujahideen taking down a dozen casualties,â€ he says. â€œTheyâ€™ll be looking to do something big, something that would make any past operation look like a squirrel shoot.â€
If Obama doesn’t secure our border after this threat has been made, he should be charged with treason. We know what the enemy plans on doing. Obama took an oath to defend the United States against all threats foreign and domestic. Well, we need protected now more than ever. What’s it gonna be Obama?
