    ISIS activity prompts threat level increase at bases - CNNPolitics.com
    Washington (CNN)Security conditions at U.S. military bases were raised Thursday night, because of growing concern of a jihadist threat in the U.S.

    It comes hours after FBI Director James Comey raised the prospect there are thousands of ISISfollowers online in the U.S.

    "We have a general concern, obviously, that ISIL is focusing on the uniformed military and law enforcement," Comey told reporters Thursday.

    The order was signed by Admiral William Gortney, head of the command.

    "We have the same concern about the potential threat posed by violent homegrown extremists," said Captain Jeff Davis, spokesman for the U.S. Northern Command which oversees all U.S. military installations in the continental U.S.

    Wow!!! Over a 1000 pop up targets! PLEASE come back to Texas, y'all. We had fun shooting your asses last time. The police had all the fun. But 1000 of ya leaves a lot for our civilian/retired military gun enthusiasts.

    I wonder if that means that security people will actually have ammo in their firearms this time.

    Been to "Bravo" every since they mentioned going after military families. We may be getting tired of being targets and start targeting ourselves. Someone said it is time to play cowboys and muzzies.

    They can hit airlines any day of the week. Sitting at gate F8 at msp. Half of the ground and airport personnel are Islamist. No joke.

    You know it's getting pretty bad when there are foreigners walking around in your local redneckville Wal-Mart speaking Arabic. Just sayin'.

    It could be a matter of , "it takes a thief to catch a thief". It is remotely possible that they are more likely to be able to spot a problem, due to being more familiar with the culture.seesaw
