Graham, McCain Warn Iraqi Militants Could Attack U.S.

You’re never gonna believe it: Senators John McCain (R-AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) believe ISIS could attack the U.S. homeland. It’s good to see they’re agreeing again.

On separate shows at almost literally the same time, the two senators warned that the band of Islamic militants currently cutting a streak across Iraq needed to be stopped before they threatened the United States:

Graham: “They’re coming here. This is not just about Baghdad, not just about Syria. It’s about our homeland. If we get attacked because [Obama] has no strategy to protect us, then he will have committed a blunder for the ages.”

McCain: “Well, these people that are coming to fight on the side of ISIS are returning to their countries in Europe and there’s 100 of them that we are tracking in the United States. As I mentioned to you already, one was in Syria, came back to the United States, and then went back to Syria and blew himself up. Mr. Baghdadi, the leader of ISIS, when he left our Camp Bucca, the camp in Iraq, he said “see you in New York.”…They’re goal, as they have stated openly time after time, is the destruction of the United States.”

Yes, these two have been ringing this bell for some time.
