Ret Gen: ISIS Has 'the Ability to Attack Anywhere'

Ret. U.S. Army Gen. Paul Vallely predicted that the United States will be hit with a terrorist attack worse than Sept. 11, 2001 “within the next six months” on Monday’s “Sean Hannity Show.” 

Vallely said the prediction was based on his vetting of the group, along with others such as the Muslim Brotherhood and al Qaeda, his travels to the Middle East, and interviews with Egyptian leaders and intelligence officials. Vallely added that he believed based on “good intelligence” that ISIS has “linked up now with the drug cartels.”  And that “they have the ability to attack anywhere that they so desire.”

Fox News Middle East and terrorism analyst Dr. Walid Phares reported that based on his monitoring of chat room traffic that ISIS is already in the United States, and targeting media personalities and public figures who speak out against the group.
