DALLAS – September 11th. That’s a date most of us will never forget. And with the 13th anniversary one day away, a lot of the country is bit on edge – and it’s for a good reason.
One word: ISIS – or ISIL – or whatever they call themselves these days.
This killing machine has made no secret they hate America, blaming us for just about everything and using terrorist threats and ultimatums.
And it turns out, they don’t bluff. We found that out when ISIS beheaded two American journalists; the videos were posted on the Internet for the world to see.
Eight out of ten Americans now say they think ISIS is a threat -- thinking that maybe they’re planning an attack to coincide with 9/11.
So it might not come as a surprise that the Commander in Chief is taking a prime time opportunity to address the country Wednesday night to tell us his plan on how to defeat this terrorist group.
Hmmm. The President? Speaking out on terrorism? On the ever of 9-11? Pretty timely.
He’s already talked about how the U.S. is going to try to take these guys out with air strikes. However, Obama says this won’t be an Iraq War déjà vu. In fact, Secretary of State John Kerry landed in Baghdad this morning to ask the Iraq government to join forces with us against the ISIS Crisis.
For now, all we can do is hold our breath, hope for the best, and honor the 2,996 people who died in the 9/11 attacks.
