Skip to comments.Paris Attacks: ISIS Has New External Operations Unit, Officials Say
Posted on 11/15/2015 11:37:47 AM PST by SeekAndFind
ISIS has developed a specific group within its organization dedicated to launching terrorist attacks abroad, like the one the claimed more than 100 lives in Paris, U.S. officials told ABC News.
"There is a specific unit on the organization charts of ISIS for external attacks, for planning and carrying out attacks in western Europe and in the United States," said Richard Clarke, a former White House counter-terrorism advisor and current ABC News consultant.
Just a day before the attacks in Paris, ISIS claimed responsibility for a dual suicide bombing in Beirut, Lebanon that killed 43 people. At the end of October, the group's Egyptian affiliate said it was responsible for bringing down a Russian airliner over Egypt, killing more than 200.
Early Saturday ISIS, which is based in Syria, released a statement online claiming responsibility for the Paris attacks, which left at least 129 dead and more than 350 injured, and saying they were the first in a coming "storm."
Clarke said that ISIS previously relied on so-called âlone wolfâ actors that were simply inspired by ISIS to carry out attacks on their own abroad â including a number of incidents in the U.S. Recently, however, the terror group appears to be embarking on "complicated, commanded and controlled multi-actor" external operations.

Army of Hasan.

Looks like they’ve just been promoted to the Premier League of terrorism.
ISIS is managed and armed and supported by Erdogan as well...and why Erdogan gave him place in the G20 Summit he hosted....

Well, duuuuuuuuuuh. ABC is late to the party.

“US Officials”. Richard Clarke? Pedophile Howard Gutman? This is the best you can do ABC?
Has Hillary contracted with Stanley Inc. to force another
poor schlub on Federal parole to make a Youtube video? Again?
Yep, it stars Obama, Reggie Love, Mohammad, and a goat.
After all, they just want to get well educated in our great schools so they can get a nice job and go shopping in the malls for the
Christmas Holiday Season. They would never think of blowing them up along with people that have welcomed them to our shores, are giving them generous welfare benefits, and letting them vote in our free elections!
