Listening to Security of State John Kerry’s bazaar statement, that we are “in a period of less daily threat to America and to the people of the world”, one can’t help but wonder what type of medication the good Security is on. To say there’s a “disconnect” between what is actually taking place around the world and Kerry’s rose colored vision, is quite frankly a disturbing understatement.

And nothing can be more apparent of that fact, then what FBI Director James Comey outlined in a recent speech to law enforcement officers in Mississippi, about the unfolding threat of ISIS on the homeland, and the potential of homegrown terrorists within our mist. The Director went on to outline that the FBI has opened up “cases of suspects who may be tied to ISIS in 49 states of the United States”, he later amended that number to also include Alaska, as the 50th state.

Director Comey continued; “We are focused keenly on who would be looking to travel to join this band of murderers who will have come back from Iraq and Syria and to the United States,”

Those comments by the FBI Director drew an immediate response by Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee. Who once again called on the administration to get serious and increase the air campaign against ISIS positions in Iraq and Syria.

“If he does not go on the offensive against ISIS, ISIL, whatever you want to call these guys, they are coming here,” Graham said. “This is not just about Baghdad. That is not just about Syria. It is about our homeland.”

U.S. officials have estimated that there are approximately 100 American citizens that have either gone or are going in and out of Syria to fight for ISIS, and not all of them can be identified or known to law enforcement authorities, which of course pose additional problems in identifying those that may be coming back to the homeland.

However with all of these dire warnings coming out of the FBI, and by members of the Armed Services Committee, one thing is clear that politics is once again rearing its ugly head, and both President Obama and Security of State Kerry are once again putting American lives in danger, by attempting to downplay and ignore the recent beheadings of American citizens, the mass executions in Paris and the burning alive of innocent Christians and Muslims.
