    The FBI did not alert numerous Americans that they were placed on secret Islamic State kill lists or notify their local police about the potential dangers, a lapse in the government’s efforts to combat the terrorist group’s evolving strategy to target everyday citizens.

    To date, the terror group that goes by the acronym ISIS has published on encrypted web sites several hit lists naming more than 15,000 people it would like to see killed by sleeper cells or lone wolves in New York, Texas, Florida and California.

    The lists aren’t public but Circa News obtained copies of some and made sample calls to the everyday Americans who appeared on them, from college professors and military personnel to art collectors and homemakers.

    In Texas alone, Circa identified 22 people in a sampling of 24 names who did not receive any notification that they were in ISIS’s crosshairs. It also identified two local police departments whose citizens were on the list that also got no alert from the FBI.

    “I was terrified. We live in a different world and the Jewish community is a number one target of these radicals,” said a woman in Austin who found out from Circa that she and several of her friends in the Jewish community were on a list. The woman agreed to be interviewed only on condition of anonymity, fearing using her name would only increase her risk.

    “I’m very upset that I was not notified by the FBI or local law enforcement,” she said.

    Since the hit lists began emerging more frequently earlier this year, FBI officials have said they intended to notify all Americans threatened by ISIS and to work with their local police departments.

    I'm probably on all kinds of lists. Sadly, I am never on the list to get into the beautiful places where the beautiful people go to play. I think they are jealous of my big gun.

    With 15,000 people on the list I would bet that the FBI has informed 10% or less, most likely only people THEY felt were in danger or that are high on the political food chain. I have never seen any ISIS/terrorist list but I do know that the government has some and was shocked to find out that every soldier that has gone through EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) of any type is immediately place on the lists...I say lists, plural, because there are many for each agency.

    Another fine example of incompetence and stupidity at all ranks and all levels.

    Since they wont notify anyone on the list and we should assume they are not targeting vets the frequent the V.A. there is your cause for carrying a weapon.
    I am just going to assume I am on it. The government contracts everything over in Afghanistan now to local nationals it wouldn't be difficult at all for one to collect my name off the laundry list or chow hall roster or random piece of paper in the dumpster.

    @oil pan 4 "...everything over in Afghanistan now to local nationals it wouldn't be difficult at all for one to collect my name off the laundry list or..." I saw it happen in Kosovo. Serbs got a couple of kids names and called their mothers/fathers told if they were not gone asap then they were dead. They got sent stateside double asap. We think it was the maids...but never found out for sure, at least I didn't hear, but honestly, it's very easy to do.
