Lindsey Graham on Paris Attack: ‘There’s a 9/11 Coming’

grahamLindsey Graham warned on CNN this morning that “there’s a 9/11 coming” if the world does not step up more strongly to combat the threat of ISIS.

He told Jake Tapper that the current U.S. strategy is failing, and he warned President Obama and everyone else, “We don’t have until the next election to deal with ISIL. There’s a 9/11 coming, and it’s coming from Syria if we don’t disrupt their operations inside of Syria.”

Graham said that everyone should be listening to him, but added that “I am not trying to have pride of authorship here. I’m trying to protect America from another 9/11.”

“Without American boots on the ground in Syria and Iraq,” he concluded, “we’re gonna get it here at home. And if you don’t understand that, you’re not ready to be Commander-in-Chief, in my view.”
