ISIS has been sowing fear worldwide for far too long. Here is what Trump needs to do to put an end to it.
“How much of a real threat does ISIS represent to the U.S.?” asked Lee H. Hamilton, Director of Center on Congress at Indiana University and former U.S. Representative from Indiana’s 9th Congressional District. “We’ve only been able to guess how much of a threat ISIS represents to U.S. interests,” noting that the Department of Homeland Security and FBI says they have “no credible information to indicate an attack on the U.S. homeland.”
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin Dempsey, the highest U.S. military office, told Fox news that “there is no sign that Islamic State militants are engaged in ‘active’ plotting against the homeland.” Dempsey noted concerns that “non-Middle Easterners who joined ISIS but have passports and access might return to Western countries.” Mixed messages coming from the Administration are promoting fear, confusion and concern about the President’s ability to address ISIS, which can thwart his efforts.
