US Official Warns ISIS is 'Worse Than al Qaeda,' Now a 'Full Blown Army'

Wednesday at a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on the invasion of Iraq by the militant group ISIS, Brett McGurk, deputy assistant secretary of state, said The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) “is al Qaeda… it may have changed its name, but it is al Qaeda. In fact, it is worse than al Qaeda.” 

The U.S. official warned that with its successful surge capturing both financial and military assets in Iraq, ISIS is “no longer a terrorist organization. It is a full-blown army.”
