Saturday on Fox News Channel's "America's News HQ," network military analyst Ret. Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney told host Uma Pemmaraju that in oder to address the current threat ISIS posses, the Untied States should "go to DEFCON 1, our highest state of readiness and be prepared as we lead up to 9/11," because he warned "we may even see a 9/11/14."

I saw it live -- note this is a Ret. Lt General - and he was very serious, didn't seem like "fear mongering"-- it sounded like there is some serious basis to his "concerns": "ISIS is an existential threat to the US -- NOW"

I think ISIL is busy consolidating in the Mideast right now. I think we are safe for another year.

If all those SWAT teams want to do something useful,have them raid every Mosque in America.They will need trucks to haul away the confiscated weapons.

This is at least the second major controversial statement
McInerney has recently made. I’m not saying he’s incorrect, but he’s out on a limb again.

The General did say we should go to DEFCON 1 NOW.

Recommend watching the video — not very long, but it is very powerful.

As I said, he would not have said what he did, unless there really is “clear and present danger”.

I don’t think ISIS is going to go into heavy planning on how and where to attack. I think it’s going to be random attacks all over the damn place....outside of the norm.

Well, uh; McInerney is the guy who stated on Fox that his inside sources at Boeing had told him the missing Malaysian 730 had landed in Pakistan - maybe it did and maybe it didn’t, but I’m beginning to suspect that his inside tips should be taken with the same seriousness as Dick Morris’s secret inside polliong in the 2012 election - just sayin’.....

Thanks for posting the links to the FReeper posts — FReepers beat the MSM again.

Breitbart picked it up from FoxNews, that’s what I posted — but the other news media have nothing on this.

This time, this year, the EXEMPT US Government has
made certain the borders are open for Mexican and Islamic
slavers, for narco- and Islamic terrorists,
and for their infected minor sex slaves and mules.

Heck, the US Government has offered them
money, immunity, air tickets to all 57 states,
and healthcare, and some it has even weaponized
like Fast&Furious.

” McInerney is the guy who stated on Fox that his inside sources at Boeing had told him the missing Malaysian 730 had landed in Pakistan - maybe it did and maybe it didn’t”

He made a reference to it today too —

“The fact is we may even see a 9/11/14 MH-370 surface again. “

They don’t have to launch an amphibious landing on our coasts. Imagine if they just sent 100 men into the US through our open southern border with assault rifles and bomb vests. Then, if those 100 men attacked 25 places where people congregate...

..football games where they check your bags at the gate, but let you get on a packed park and ride shuttle with a backpack.

...churches.

...schools.

They might not bring down a major building, but they sure could make people fear going out, and our own government would make our lives pure hell after such an attack. Remember that the muzzies only have to do something, and Obama and his pet media will do the real terrorizing.

A hit on the US a BIG hit would go far in consolidating ISIL and would be a boon for recruitment and put such fear in the Middle East that most would run and very few if any would stand.

I see this as merely a caution to become hyper-alert.

I don’t see it as him being out on a limb.

It is known the terrorist groups like to attack on noteworthy dates. This is sound reasoning IMO.

(A) I believe that the General is probably being truthful.

(B) At a time of dismal poll numbers, the Obama Administration and it’s loyal media have suddenly really ratcheted up the IS fear-mongering and are now talking about re-invading Iraq... because the first 2 times just weren’t good enough. (?)

I am divided on what is “actually” going on.

Seems like 2003 all over again. Do you trust the Obama administration to start a war as much as you did Bush (which worked out so well)?

Substitute “Saddam” and “WMD” in all these statements coming out, then prepare to lose another 3000 of our best sons and spend another couple trillion$ of our grandchildren’s money.

Meanwhile hundreds of thousands pour over the border, the dollar becomes worthless, the executive branch increases it’s tyranny, and we can’t manufacture anything. We lose focus.

Pray this coming war is surgical and quick and devastating to ISIL. No nation building. No Coalition body bags.

I concur. And after they complete the consolidation, they will find themselves isolated from the moderate Sunni Arabs that will then take control as they did in Egypt. These moderates live in the new territory and elsewhere in the region.

Bottom line....... money not religion will prevail

This general has a very good reputation. He was one of the officers run out under Clinton for being too much of a straight shooter. I believe absolutely that plane could be in Pakistan, and I would trust this guy as much, if not more than, most others.

One thing is pretty certain about that plane.......if it did crash in the ocean, PARTS and PIECES from it would have washed up on shores, and nothing has been reported. It either LANDED or crashed onto an island or forest or mountain.

Of course there will be more attacks. It only took two attempts to take down the WTC. And the second attack along with our over reaction has brought us the kind of government that our Founders tried so hard to avoid.

Please note that Gen McInerney said a BOOK is going to be published on September 7th. NOT some sort of event is going to happen.

McInerney referenced the missing Malaysia Airlines jet MH370 from earlier this year and said, “On the seventh of September, a major news network and publishing network are going to put out a book. It is going to be earth shattering of what’s happening and what happened. The fact is we may even see a 9/11/14 MH-370 surface again. We should go to DEFCON 1, our highest state of readiness and be prepared as we lead up to 9/11.”

McInerney lost any credibility in my eyes when he started blabbing about his ironclad evidence that MH370 was in Pakistan. Nowadays, he’s got those crazy eyes.

“We are less safe today than we were six years ago.”

When the Obama said America could absorb another 911 type
event, that was a warning not an opinion. Why not? He’s
doing the same thing the Toon did when he was in office.
Telling our military to stand down, intentionally leaving
our borders wide open and encouraging our enemies by
letting them know he wouldn’t do anything about it
if they did.

So if a 911 event happened tomorrow and it was proven
that the terrorist came in with those refugee children
from south of the border, do you think the establishment
republicans would try to do anything to hold the Obama
accountable? Personally I doubt it, in fact I bet they
would sit there and let him lay all the blame on Bush
and the TEA party and then agree with him.

Sounds, well, not so crazy when you think about it.
Most likely your right. But then to save face he will
have his media blame it on the TEA party. Why not?
That’s the first thing the media is going to do anyway.
They always do.

McInerney is one of the good guys. A warrior, not a perfumed prince. He had many combat tours in Vietnam and has a Bronze Star with a “V” for valor. He was a forward air controller part of the time. If he is worried, I am too. As for MH370, the whole thing is strange and he probably is closer to right than most. I mean, where is the darn thing ?
