Former CIA deputy director: ‘I would not be surprised’ if ISIS member showed up in a mall with AK47

Former CIA deputy director Mike Morell says that he worries that ISIS could be training Americans and other westerners on how to carry out small scale attacks in America.

Specifically, Morell says it wouldn’t surprise him if an ISIS member showed up in one of our malls with an AK-47 to kill a handful of Americans. He also worries about more long-term 9/11 style threats from ISIS as well.

Morell also commented on the information released by the Obama administration yesterday about the failed rescue mission to rescue James Foley.

Morell says that when Americans showed up at the oil refinery to rescue the hostages, they weren’t there. But ISIS didn’t know why we showed up at the oil refinery. But now, because of this information release by the Obama administration, they do know and will better protect their hostages in the future.
