U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) said this week that the Islamic State terror group is quickly developing a way to blow up a major U.S. city.
The Senator, who serves as the ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said in an interview Wednesday with KOKH-TV that the threat is real.
“They’re crazy out there and they’re rapidly developing a method of blowing up a major U.S. city,” he said. “People just can’t believe that’s happening.”
“They’re crazy out there and they’re rapidly developing a method of blowing up a major U.S. city.”
Inhofe described the group as “really bad terrorists,” saying they are “so bad even Al-Qaeda is afraid of them.’
Earlier this week, the terror group released graphic footage showing one of their militants beheading an American journalist. Obama condemned it as an “act of violence that shocks the conscience of the entire world.”
