ISIS, also known as the Islamic State, has taken somewhat of a pounding in Iraq recently at the hands of the laser guided missile strikes on their positions in the region, ordered by Barack Obama.
However, according to intelligence reports on Saturday, ISIS is not just going to let the U.S. strikes against them go unnoticed or unpunished. Five intelligence officials told Bloomberg News some worrying things about ISIS and its strategy.
They alleged that the fanatical Islamist terrorist group is planning to carry out major terror attacks against targets in the United States, and possibly in Europe.
According to the intelligence officials, ISIS has sleeper cells around the world, including in Europe and America, whose goal is to gain a greater foothold in the Islamic world, politically and militarily.
U.S. Army Colonel Derek Harvey said that due to Obama’s failed policy in leaving Iraq, the country is now gripped in a “competition for jihadi leadership” between ISIS and Al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri, following the falling out between the two groups last year.
The Colonel also claimed that President Obama has seriously underestimated ISIS’ hold in Syria in Iraq, as well as what they are capable of in terms of 9/11 type atrocity on mainland America.
