On Thursday’s “CBS This Morning,” former CIA Deputy Director Mike Morell made a claim about the Islamic State terror group ravaging Iraq that had anchor Norah O’Donnell calling it “really scary to hear.”

After explaining what he thought needed to be done to defeat the terrorists (more targeted strikes and better intelligence), he said that “if an ISIS member showed up in a mall in the United States tomorrow with an AK-47 and killed a number of Americans I would not be surprised.”

“Over the long-term, I worry that this group could present a 9/11-style threat,” he added, noting the group presents both a short-term and long-term threat.

  1. With the southern border wide open. I would not be surprised either. Might as well send them an engraved invatation.

  2. If it happens, then the people opening that Southern Border to immigration with no controls are going to be held responsible.
    With everything going on in the world today, in hindsight, the Congress and the President will be held responsible for allowing our security to go to hell. We have been real good at protecting the country through the front door, only to allow it to go to pieces over the Mexican border.
    The only chance that both Congress and the President have is to close that border as soon as possible and hope these Terrorists have not taken advantage of the lax security.

  3. what if 100 showed up at christmas shopping time?
    They have the $$ what if they showed up with a few nukes and shot them up to create EMP,s
    What if they poison major city water supplies
    Hell with Obozo and open borders anything is possible
    ISIS ius not your local terrorist – They are committed killers
    WHEN it happens those effected families need to take personal retribution on those that ALLOWED it to happen

  4. Yes bash the Russian made gun and Russians in the same story as ISIS, I would be willing to bet that if an ISIS guy showed up and moved people down he would be using the US made mass shooting weapon of choice, the AR-15
