Republicans are sounding the warning that the next 9/11-like terror plot could emerge from the regions of Iraq and Syria that are currently dominated by an extremist group bearing down on Baghdad.
As the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) - which has already captured the cities of Tikrit and Mosul and is threatening to take the capital city as well - grows in strength and numbers, will it pose an immediate threat to the United States homeland as well?
Experts say the group's increasing power and reach is concerning, though it's not entirely clear when they might be able to threaten the U.S.
"You've got motivation mixed with opportunity, ideology and foreign fighters and all of that looks like a very extreme version of Afghanistan in the '90s, plus what was happening in Iraq after the Iraq war," said CBS News National Security Analyst Juan Zarate. "This is a cauldron of future terrorist threats to the west."
The bigger danger, Zarate said, is that the U.S. does not yet know exactly what the group will look like once it evolves. While ISIS might not launch an attack on U.S. soil tomorrow, he said, "I think the grave threat here is that you have the seeds of a new terrorist movement emerging very aggressively."

“See you in New York!”
Half a billion to spend. Endless supply of young men willing to die for their 72 virgins. Open U.S. borders...
What could go wrong?
Obama is arming them in Syria. He’s probably arming them here. I will be surprised if he doesn’t go all out before 2016.
Stay out of Iraq and lock down the borders here and enforce the immigration laws to the last detail and get rid of all the illegal immigrants.
I’ll make a deal with our “lawmakers” if they can prove they’re concerned by locking down our border and stop importing muslims legally, I’ll believe their concerns.
Wait. What?! Isn't Traitorobama already the 9/11-style islamoterrorist plot against the U.S., enabled by DemonicRats and the fifth-column MSM.
Not soon enough for your (EXEMPT) Congress and King."
When have Islamic extremists not wanted to do another 9/11 attack against the U.S.?
Well, according to the “latest polls”, 40% of “americans” would “approve” if they did.
Does the media call them ISIS now so they can pretend al qaeda was defeated by hussein?
Nope not New York but Jerusalem.
In this extemely graphic hour long video it is clear that the intentions of ISIS is to destroy Al Aqsa or as Jewish and Christians call it the Temple mount.
They speak of meetin in Al Quds....or Jerusalem.
I mentioned it last week that the underlying drive of ISIS is their belief in end time prophecy. This cannot be ignored.
Of course they will. The blood will be on Obama’s hands.
In short? NO. That second 9/11/2001 attack came on January 20, 2009.
Ha! Good one. That’s funny.
Since not a single one of those things will happen, buy guns and ammo. It’s the perfect time, gun prices are way down.
It’s definitely a joke with Obama ...
WILL they plan such an attack?
I think those plans are already growing old & have been planned for some time.
Perhaps now people will realize that giving arms to the “Islamic rebels” in Syria was sheer lunacy.
Nah. They’re peaceful and moderate, just like Obama said
They certainly won’t happen with Obama in the President’s Office ...
