Michele Bachmann: ‘We have known about this ISIS threat for months’

In January, President Obama referred to al-Qaeda linked groups in Iraq and Syria as “a jayvee team.” Nine months later, ISIS has declared a caliphate, brutally executed religious minorities in Iraq and Syria, and beheaded two American journalists as they continue to make threats.

On radio this morning, Glenn asked Congresswoman Michele Bachmann to use her expertise from the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence to shed some light on the history of the ISIS threat.

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

On June 29, ISIS declared a caliphate and named Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi the caliph. As Bachmann explained, Baghdadi has an important backstory. U.S. forces arrested him in 2005, and he was held in the U.S.-run Camp Bucca in Iraq until 2009. Upon his release, Baghdadi reportedly told guards, “I’ll see you guys in New York.” He then returned home to reorganize his troops on the ground.

“In 2010, he spent the year reconstituting the Islamic State,” Bachmann said. “Last year, there was a wave of car bombs all across Iraq to destabilize the nation.”

Earlier this year, Baghdadi issued a rare recorded threat to the U.S. warning a “direct confrontation” was to come. Bachmann described his comment as “very strategic.”

“Our last message is to the Americans. Soon we will be in direct confrontation, and the sons of Islam have prepared for such a day,” Baghdadi said. “So watch, for we are with you, watching.”

While the bloodthirsty tactics of ISIS have just recently made mainstream media headlines, Bachmann said the government has been studying this threat for months. One particular aspect that she has focused her attention on is the threat of homegrown terrorists from Minnesota. Thus far, we know two Somali Americans have died fighting alongside ISIS in Syria. Both men lived in the Minneapolis area.

“We have known about this ISIS threat for months. This is not a new thing,” Bachmann said. “So I went to the FBI and asked them about Minneapolis. We have been a hotbed for terrorism,” Bachmann said. “Now we know there were thousands of… people holding European passports fighting with ISIS. Well over 100 with U.S. passports fighting.”

Because of ISIS’ intent to defeat the United States, Bachmann has been working on legislation that would prohibit Americans who have gone overseas to wage jihad from returning to the U.S. As of now, Bachmann said individuals with a U.S. passport cannot be prevented from reentering the country.

“How can we not prevent them from coming in, if they joined up with an enemy that has declared war on us? Isn’t that logical we would stop them before they ever get into the United States,” she asked. “So I went back to my office and directed my staff… to draw up legislation to prevent Americans with American passports who have gone to join ISIS… from coming back into the United States. Now, it would have to go through the legislative process, [and] that’s a slow process. We’re running out of time.”

Bachmann urged those listening to contact their local congressman and senator and demand corporation on this issue. While it will not solve the threat of ISIS, it will close a major loophole in our national security system.

“What you could do to help me is: People who are listening… could contact their member of Congress – both their house and senate member,” Bachmann concluded. “But also send a message to the White House that we need full, immediate, fast track cooperation on this legislation.”

    Michele Bachmann has been in Congress the entire time the US has been fueling the fire in the middle east with weapons/destabilization. She has been in Congress while our government provides direct aid and training to muslims who fight against Assad. Did Bachmann speak out against bombing Libya? Did Bachmann speak out against providing arms to our ‘friends’ in the middle east? Did Bachmann call out Obama as warmongering when he tried to bomb Syria the first time?

    Therefore, Michele Bachmann shares responsibility with Obama. Dont be deceived by these tough-talkers. Folks, the fix is in

      Michell Bachmann told us about Obama flying a known terrorist, and inviting him to a national security meeting. Once their this man shouted “free the blind sheik,” he then left on a flight provided by Obama to an undisclosed location. Announcing this to the public didn’t accomplish anything. She may have protested all those other actions as well. Just because you didn’t hear it, doesn’t mean she never said anything. If she didn’t say anything, I can forgive her for being a little jaded, about making public statements.

      From the moment the first bombs began falling on Afghanistan in October 2001 to the present, not a single U.S. military intervention has had anything like its intended effect. Each one has, in time, proven a disaster in its own special way, providing breeding grounds for extremism and producing yet another set of recruitment posters for yet another set of jihadist movements.
      Looked at in a clear-eyed way, this is what any American military intervention seems to offer such extremist outfits — and ISIS knows it.

      • Paul_Xavier

        He’s been replacing Muslim factions in other countries, with Muslim brotherhood factions. He has supported every one of their takeovers. He’s consolidating their power. He gave the Muslim brotherhood 4 billion dollars when they took over in Egypt, and gave them military support everywhere else. That’s not an accident.

          The situation in Iraq is a US-made disaster of historic proportions. Millions dead or wounded, millions more displaced, and all overseen by a kleptocratic government more interested in grinding old enemies into the dust than governing…and of course, yes, a seemingly endless cycle of violence that claims new victims every day.

          In the same fashion that most people think the Iraq war was a disaster, the same majority now see George W. Bush as the worst president in modern American history. But By the metrics of those who delivered him to the Oval Office, however, George W. Bush was the most successful president in the history of the country. Everything he was sent to do by those who paid his freight – gut the Treasury, break the government, establish permanent war, and make his friends rich – he accomplished to perfection.

          So it is with Iraq. You think it’s a disaster, I think it’s a disaster, and by any vaguely human measure, it is a disaster…but for a few people, the ones who pay that political freight and count coins according to how many bombs and bullets get used, the specter of ongoing war and fear and death and weaponized mayhem makes what is happening in Iraq the equivalent of Christmas in August, a smashing success, and a fantastic return on their investment.

          ISIS is hardly an existential threat-just a cog in a geopolitical game -Its just a shame most folks dont know when their being played !

        War should be avoided if possible. If unavoidable, There is only one reason to go to war. Victory. The goal is to destroy your enemy’s ability and desire to wage war against you. That is it! Except in the US; where we do political war while our enemy does military war. We try to do nation building and turn tribes into democracies and village idiots into presidents. (because it worked so well for us) We do not have the backbone to get victory and then get out. We finished off the Japanese, Germans and Italians in 4 years on two fronts. We took the entire country of Iraq in a matter of months. We could have cleaned their clocks. old politicians whose sons are exempt, send our sons to die and then screw up everything. There is a stalemate in Korea and no peace treaty has ever been signed. Officially we are still at war. We were winning Vietnam, until the politicians changed the rules-of-engagement so we would lose — so they could win elections. currently soldiers with only a couple of years before getting retirement are quitting because of the current rules-of-engagement are making them sacrifices on the alter of votes and elections. A huge majority of our casualties have been endured under the present “anti-war” president than the previous one.

      Amen. Why do people play along with his facade? He gives money to the enemy. He defends them diplomatically. He Labels U.S. citizens as terrorists. He refuses to label Middle east people as terrorists? (these are according to FBI directions). He promotes Sharia law. Why are his critics playing along with his act. He’s not poor at his job. The damage he’s causing is intentional. We shouldn’t play along with his ruse.

        PrettyAmazing !
        A blogger added up the deer license sales in just a handful of states and arrived at a striking conclusion:
        There were over 600,000 hunters this season in the state of Wisconsin …
        Allow me to restate that number: 600,000 !
        Over the last several months, Wisconsin ‘s hunters became the eighth
        largest army in the world.
        (That’s more men under arms than in Iran . More than France and Germany
        combined. )
        These men, deployed to the woods of a single American state, Wisconsin , to
        hunt with firearms, and NO ONE WAS KILLED.
        That number pales in comparison to the 750,000 who hunted the woods of
        Pennsylvania and Michigan ‘s 700,000 hunters,
        ALL OF WHOM HAVE RETURNED HOME SAFELY.
        Toss in a quarter million hunters in West Virginia and it literally establishes the fact that the
        hunters of those four states alone would comprise the largest army in thec world.
        And then add in the total number of hunters in the other 46 states. It’s millions more.
        ____The point? _______________________________________
        America will forever be safe from foreign invasion with that kind of home-grown firepower !
        Hunting.it’s not just a way to fill the freezer.
        It’s a matter of national security.
        ***************************************
        That’s why all enemies, foreign and domestic, want to see us disarmed.
        Food for thought, when next we consider gun control.
        Overall it’s true, so if we disregard some assumptions that hunters don’t pocess
        the same skills as soldiers, the question would still cremain…
        What army of 2 million would want to face 30 million, 40 million, or 50 million armed citizens ? ? ?
        For the sake of our freedom, don’t ever allow gun control or confiscation of guns.
        Does this Obama administration really expect our sons, daughters and grandchildren in the military and in the police forces of towns and cities to take up arms and shoot their friends and relatives on an
        order from a Muslim raised arrogant ignorant phony with a fake birth certificate ?
        WHO WOULD PROTECT OUR LAND AND I SURE DON’T WANT THE GOVERNMENT TAKING
        CONTROL OF THE POSSESSION OF FIREARMS) AMERICA

        None of those things were what was protecting us. Virtuous, and vigilant people held up those deals. These people were blessings from God. God himself protected our country.

      New as ISIS may be, a little history is in order, since that group is, at least in part, America’s legacy in the Middle East.All in all, the invasions, the occupations, the drone campaigns in several lands, the deaths that ran into the hundreds of thousands, the uprooting of millions of people sent into external or internal exile, the expending of trillions of dollars added up to a bin Laden dreamscape. They would prove jihadist recruitment tools par excellence.

      When the U.S. was done, when it had set off the process that led to insurgencies, civil wars, the growth of extremist militias, and the collapse of state structures, it had also guaranteed the rise of something new on Planet Earth: ISIS — as well as of other extremist outfits ranging from the Pakistani Taliban, now challenging the state in certain areas of that country, to Ansar al-Sharia in Libya and al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula in Yemen.

      Though the nutters of ISIS would undoubtedly be horrified to think so, they are the spawn of Washington. Thirteen years of regional war, occupation, and intervention played a major role in clearing the ground for them. They may be our worst nightmare (thus far), but they are also our legacy — and not just because so many of their leaders came from the Iraqi army we disbanded, had their beliefs and skills honed in the prisons we set up (Camp Bucca seems to have been the West Point of Iraqi extremism), and gained experience facing U.S. counterterror operations in the “surge” years of the occupation.

      In fact, just about everything done in the war on terror has facilitated their rise. After all, we dismantled the Iraqi army and rebuilt one that would flee at the first signs of ISIS’s fighters, abandoning vast stores of Washington’s weaponry to them. We essentially destroyed the Iraqi state, while fostering a Shia leader who would oppress enough Sunnisin enough ways to create a situation in which ISIS would be welcomed or tolerated throughout significant areas of the country.

  • independ135

    She does realize this group does not want to destroy the United States (at least at this point), right? They intend to topple Saudi Family and become the new Emirs. Not saying this group wouldn’t mind watching America crumble but their main objective at this point is to topple the royal family. This would essentially end whatever reliable foreign relations and allies the U.S. has left in the Middle East. Saudi Arabia, not Isreal, is the key to American foreign relations in the region.d

    I would offer some hope for this potentially explosive development in recent Middle Eastern foreign policy: Although they do horrendous damage while they are viable, movements like ISIS almost always devour themselves in the end.

    Members of fundamentalist or true believer movements, because they are exclusionary philosophies, always condense the pool of true believers into smaller pools of even truER believers using ever more stringent definitions of piety. Those found wanting, unable or unwilling to accept the new criteria, no matter their previous true believer status, now meet the sword or, as in the case of France’s 18th century Reign of Terror, the guillotine. In France, even Robespierre, the architect of The Terror, was ultimately deemed not “pure” enough.

    I’d say it’s too early to call for land invasions of Iraq and the surrounding area. An act of terrorism on domestic soil would obviously require such a response.

    If such an attack does not materialize, though, at what point is a land invasion necessary? Where does the line exist to justify the expenditure of resources and lives?

    I’ve been grossly unimpressed with the President’s foreign policy throughout his terms but I would like to point out that he has very few options on the table and both have pretty terrible results. Going back into Iraq would be extremely unpopular and there is no guarantee a ground movement would ensure total destruction of ISIS.

    Rove and Cheney put the chips in the middle of the table to eliminate Al-Qaeda by moving into Iraq. The Bush Administration committed the pot on the premise that they would be able to eliminate Al-Qaeda and construct a viable government, a tremendous mistake that America is still paying for.

    However, if the U.S. would cease all bombing and allow ISIS to stage a takeover in Saudi Arabia, they’d lose their only dependable ally in the region as well as run the risk of acts of terrorism on domestic soil. No means of effective alternative solutions exist. The previous administration went all in on the development of the region and the current administration folded their cards with the pot already committed. A decade’s worth of poor foreign policy decisions have left the United States with no viable alternative options than those listed here.

For their repugnant, dysfunctional ways, for their STUPIDITY. Even Al-Qaeda has a level of horror they do not want to achieve. So, ONLY OBAMA has known about ISIS. As ISIS has grown from the revolution in Syria. Not before. Obama has furnished the weapons to the people of ISIS to try help depose Assad. OBAMA IS RESPONSIBLE for ISIS: HOW???? obama is a muslim, obama wants the destruction of the US, and obama is doing all he can to finish the job before his term. obama is a repugnant liar, a worthless human being, a traitor to the Spirit that created the US, a traitor to the Spirit of Enterprise and Capitalism that forged the US to be what it used to be twenty five years ago. obama is the traitor all Americans and Immigrants who have made the American Dream the reality it was before obama’s ascension to the highest post in the US government. obama is the traitor to be thrown in jail, or an insane asylum for destroying the Constitution of the United States, the Constitution which has been the original that has been copied by all countries in the world.

      O is merely a puppet figurehead of The Global Elites that want an NWO. They are using Islam / caliphates as a tool to further their cause. But, do you believe The Rothchilds, Rockefellers, etc. want to be ruled by Moslems?

    Terrorists cannot operate, not for long, without the cover and the practical, emotional and moral support of the community of which they are a part. When that community perceives itself to be the victim of a massive injustice, and if that injustice is not addressed by political means, the community will cover, condone and even applaud the activities of those of its own who resort to terror as the only means of drawing attention to the injustice, to cause it to be addressed.

    It follows that the way to defeat terrorism – the only successful and actually proven way – is by addressing the genuine and legitimate grievances of the host community. The community will then withdraw its cover and support for its terrorists; and, if they continue to try to operate, the community will then oppose them by exposing them – reporting them to the authorities if reasoning fails.

    i.e Northern Ireland to give some substance to my general point. The British army did not defeat Provisional IRA terrorism. The terrorists called off their campaign and went for negotiations only when they had no choice – because the Catholic host community would not cover and support them any longer. And that happened only because the British government summoned up the will, about half a century later than it should have done, to risk the wrath of Northern Ireland’s Protestant majority by insisting that the legitimate grievances of the Catholic minority be addressed.

    Northern Ireland is not Iraq or Syria or any of the other territories where violent Islamic fundamentalism in one form or another is rearing its ugly head, but the principle outlined above still holds good. Addressing the grievances of the host communities is essential if Jihadism is to be isolated, contained and eventually defeated.

    The American public would be well-served to remind itself that ISIS is the new Al Qaeda—in other words, the new pretext that will in all likelihood be used to take police state measures at home and military aggression abroad to new, perhaps unprecedented, levels.

    With the above in mind, it is telling that one of the US government’s greatest fears isn’t ISIS at all. “The FBI’s most recent threat assessment for domestic terrorism makes no reference to Islamist terror threats,” the Washington Free Beacon reports, “despite last year’s Boston Marathon bombing and the 2009 Fort Hood shooting—both carried out by radical Muslim Americans.”

    Instead, the nation’s foremost law enforcement agency is preoccupied with what it deems “domestic extremism” exhibited by its own subjects. A primary manifestation of such “extremism” is possessing the curiosity to discern and seek out truths and information amidst the barrage of manipulated symbols the government and corporate-controlled media use to undermine a potentially informed public.

    The border gate in el paso is wide open and just days ago the gov says there is an imminent threat on the same border. Im usually pretty good at figuring things out and finding a logical conclusion to most situations, except this. I remember when the planes hit on 9/11, i was in school standing in the hallway and several professors were watching with me. I made the comment that we were doomed the government, our government, was going to use those planes as an excuse to take the liberty of American Citizens, not those that did it. What are they going to do this time? How much more can they take from us? Illegals are flying all over the country with no ID while 80 yr old grandmothers and women carrying breast milk for their newborns are groped and labelled if they dont cooperate. What is next? Im deadly serious, what is next when the next attack comes?

    Western intervention in Syria produced what is known as “blowback”-

    The Syrian jihadists supported by the western powers and, for some baffling reason, Turkey, ran amok. A previously unknown group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant were trained and armed in Jordan by CIA, then turned lose on Syria.

    ISIL became ISIS, then the by now notorious Islamic State(IS) which has been rampaging across northern and central Iraq. What makes IS so effective is that the major portion of its leaders and soldiers are veterans of Saddam Hussein’s army, notably the Republican Guard. With IS is the last surviving Saddam insider, Izzat Ibrahim al-Douri.

    When the US first invaded Iraq, Saddam predicted it would face the “Mother of all battles.” Westerners laughed. Eleven years later, Iraq continues to fight on and it is no longer safe for foreign oil companies. Saddam’s revenge.

    In this case this is the Mother of all blowback.

    They made the Frankenstein monster. The monster has escaped and is running rampant. They have to destroy their creation.

    Arguably, the decision to invade Iraq is the worst decision in US history.

    • DJohnson

      Wrong. The decision to not bring the enemy in Iraq to it’s knees has been the worst decision in US history. We have had two opportunities, and both times we were stopped short of chopping their evil into pieces. And now, we are paying the price for that idiocy.
