Ex-FBI Director James Comey: ISIS recruiting in 50 U.S. states

WND-20-YearsOct. 15, 2015: The terror group ISIS is on a mass recruiting campaign through all 50 states, and is actively seeking new members “24 hours a day” across America, said the former director of the FBI, James Comey, in 2015.

And the campaign is resonating, he added.

Hundreds are “consuming” the ISIS social media message of joining ranks overseas or, “if you can’t come, kill where you are,” Comey said. “And that is a two-pronged siren song that goes out through social media.”

The FBI and other law enforcement and intelligence agencies banded to investigate the ISIS recruitment effort across America.

“We have investigations in all 50 states to try to identify, among hundreds of people who are consuming this poison, where are they on the stages from consuming to acting, and how do we stop them from acting,” Comey said at the time.

He made the remarks during a press event at the FBI field office near Cincinnati, Ohio.

“This is not a game,” he said. “If we catch you doing this, you’re going to get a very long stretch in jail.”
