Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel Just Laid Bare Something Terrifying That Will Make Obama Cringe

Chuck Hagel

Despite repeated assurances from key members of Team Obama that the world is a safer, more “tranquil” place on the president’s watch, along comes Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel with a dire warning about an extraordinary threat: The Islamic State.

Hagel didn’t mince words or try to sugarcoat the situation when he spoke at a gathering of defense officials. From Reuters:

The sophistication, wealth and military might of Islamic State militants represent a major threat to the United States that may surpass that once posed by al Qaeda, U.S. military leaders said on Thursday.

“They are an imminent threat to every interest we have, whether it’s in Iraq or anywhere else,” Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel told reporters at the Pentagon.

Hagel’s assessment of Islamic State, which gained strength during Syria’s civil war and swept into northern Iraq earlier this summer, sounded a note of alarm several days after the group posted a video on social media showing one of its fighters beheading an American hostage kidnapped in Syria.

Asked if the hardline Sunni Muslim organization posed a threat to the United States comparable to that of the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, Hagel said it was “as sophisticated and well-funded as any group we have seen.”

“They are beyond just a terrorist group. They marry ideology, a sophistication of … military prowess. They are tremendously well-funded. This is beyond anything we’ve seen.”

  1. OK Chuck so what are we waiting for another 9/11? Then what Otrauma gives us another crisis!!

  2. What we have ladies and gentlemen, is unmitigated and bloody war, whether we in the West as well as around the world, want to recognize it. Whether we do or don't recognize it, makes no difference to Islam (take note; I did not put a qualifier in front of the word Islam, for in truth, Islam is not a religion, it is a idol worshiping death cult, which aims to either in slave or slaughter all of the Kaifer, all of us, The non-practitioners, the infidel, the gay, the straight, the Jew, the Christian, the Hindu, the Buddhist or in other words, name your group, for they are all subject to Convert or die. They mean business and death in service to Allah, is a sacrament. This danger, requires all good men and women, true citizens to go to the polls in November and vote for those politicians, who if elected, utterly hold sacred the obligation to impeach Barack Hussein Obama on charges too numerous to count, so as to a weak, vice president Biden, who because of electoral spine demonstrated by the voters, will since his political survival depends on defending the United States of America and the rest of the world from this despicable of appalling evil. Barack Hussein Obama has demonstrated clearly his traitorous alignment with the enemy and therefore in of itself is a dangerous threat to the well-being of all American citizens I say vote this Muslim tyrant out of office by filling the Congress with men and women of principle, who will defend this great nation and seek to their duty to rid the nation of treachery to the acquiescence of the enemy! May God bless America, whose people will by conscience and duty be restored to their diligence and faith in Him as well as his bequeathment of liberty and freedom guaranteed by the rule of law, to this great land of dutiful Faith and reliance On His ever strong-arm, which is held out still. I say this in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.
