BILOXI, MS (WLOX) –
Congressman Steven Palazzo, a member of the House Armed Services Committee, says the radical Islamist group ISIS is a clear and present danger and they need to be crushed. He said that during an interview with WLOX News on Friday.
“It’s extremely dangerous. They’re well trained. They are well organized. They are well funded. They are self financing,” said Palazzo. “This isn’t money coming from outside this Islamic, the Muslim world. They have control over money that they’ve taken from banks. They have control over oil fields where they are smuggling oil. They are bringing in hundreds of millions of dollars a month.”
After a week-long trip to the Middle East to meet with allied leaders, Palazzo says they believe America took too long to recognize ISIS isn’t only a danger to Middle Eastern countries, but they could extend worldwide.
