RPT: ISIS Eyeing Ebola As Biological Weapon
ISIS terrorists are reportedly urging supporters to use a new weapon against the West.
A Spanish official claims ISIS is exploring how to use Ebola as a biological weapon.
Meanwhile, U.S. intelligence officials say the constant coalition airstrikes are not slowing the tide of 1,000 foreign fighters who join with the terrorists each month.
The “Outnumbered” panel weighed in on the latest with ISIS this afternoon.
Sandra Smith remarked that military strategists said airstrikes were just supposed to be step one of the ISIS strategy.
“What’s next – I mean, isn’t that the problem here?”
Ainsley Earhardt asked Kirsten Powers how the nation should prevent lone wolf attacks in the U.S.
Powers said that we have to rely on authorities to keep terrorists from getting in the country. She said that the government has overall done a good job at thwarting planned attacks, though there are exceptions to that, like the Boston Marathon.
“Interesting though how the current administration still then doesn’t poll well on that,” Smith interjected, noting that Americans say they don’t feel safe and aren’t happy with Obama’s foreign policy.
As for the reports of Ebola as a means of biological warfare, today’s #OneLuckyGuy Tom Shillue said that the virus is not an effective weapon. He said they're just “blowing smoke” to get headlines.
