Last weekend, the FBI raised the terror alert level at MacDill Air Force Base, and all military bases across the nation, in response to threats from ISIS. It was the highest level of security since the tenth anniversary of September 11.
The alert came after an FBI warning that there are hundreds of known, active ISIS supporters in the United States, however no specific threat has been announced.
“The so-called ‘lone wolf’ could strike at any moment,” said Jeh Johnson, Secretary of Homeland Security.
That statement alone would have been suffice and accepted but it seems Washington officials have reviewed what happened in Texas during the “Draw Muhammad” cartoon event and they want to caution soldiers to not taunt ISIS here in the United States.
“The 440,000 veterans that live in the area have heard through one way or another from the commanders at MacDill to pay attention, keep a low profile, don’t be so pompous about being in the military, because those guy are looking for possible targets,” said Col. EJ Otero, a former officer in the U.S. Air Force.
Watch this expert suggest to our military to temper their speech about ISIS:
So wait, am I mistaken or is this “expert” telling us to be afraid to use our freedom of speech and speak out on the atrocities of ISIS and what they stand for.
No American should ever feel their voice is drowned out by fear of others.
The media has rocked the foundation of free speech lately, ripping into Pamela Geller with the idea you can say anything you want, just don’t provoke the other side. Now so-called experts want to impose the same limitations on our soldiers. We have to stop the “dumbing down of America” so its citizens will know what they will face and meet it head on. We must destroy the enemy, not lay down for it.
