On the heels of the devastating Muslim terrorist attacks in Brussels, Belgium comes the even more disturbing news that the attacks appear to have been planned to target Americans. Further, the latest reports show that more than 400 ISIS terrorists are currently roaming free about Europe, preparing for their chance to carry out their own attacks.
My goal is not to fear monger but simply to inform of the very real facts and dangers currently facing Western Civilization.
Isis has trained at least 400 fighters to target Europe in deadly waves of attacks, deploying interlocking terror cells like the ones that struck Brussels and Paris with orders to choose the time, place and method for maximum carnage, The Associated Press has learned…
Estimates range from 400 to 600 Isis fighters trained specifically for external attacks… Some 5,000 Europeans have gone to Syria.
The head of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Devin Nunes , (R-CA) told reporters on Wednesday that there was some reason to believe that Tuesday’s attack in Brussels had targeted Americans.
“From my vantage point, it does look like an attack on Americans. It looks like it was targeted towards Americans to some degree.”
Nunes said he drew that conclusion based on location of the twin bombing sites: next to stands for U.S. airliners United, American and Delta at Brussels’s Zaventem airport, and at a downtown metro station less than a mile from the U.S. Embassy.
“With all that said, if you’re going to pick some locations where you might hit Americans, those would be the locations. We may never know, but from my vantage point, this looks like those locations, to me, look like places where you would hit Americans. It looks suspicious.”
While Nunes also cautioned that this was just his opinion and not the final estimation of the intelligence community, his words ring true, particularly in the attack at the airport.
The combination of the two stories, hundreds of ISIS fighters in Europe and the possibility that they are targeting Americans, weaves a particularly harrowing narrative to Americans living in or traveling to Europe.
All of this comes together just as news leaked from the Defense Department that the release of some Gitmo detainees has led to the deaths of Americans!
“What I can tell you is unfortunately, there have been Americans that have died because of Gitmo detainees,” Paul Lewis, the Pentagon’s special envoy for Guantanamo closure, told the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
US @SenatorTimScott says confirmation that released Gitmo detainees have led to American deaths means Pres Obama must rescind closure plans

All of the evidence is pointing in the same direction. We cannot trust President Obama or his Democrat cronies to assist us in defending ourselves from the threat of radical Islam. At every turn the Obama administration has proven to be either incompetent or directly (and purposefully) destructive of our efforts at self-defense. As the 2016 national elections approach we must remember this upon entering the voting booth. The Democrat Party in general, and Hillary Clinton in particular, cannot be trusted with the task of fighting radical Islamic terrorism. Every day they lead the world becomes an ever more dangerous place.
