Fiery Green Beret-UFC Fighter on ISIS Threats: 'Let Those Cowards Come'
A former Green Beret sniper and UFC fighter is working with the FBI because of threats made against him by ISIS fighters.
The Army Times reported Wednesday that followers of ISIS have made “recent credible threats” against Tim Kennedy, who served in 7th Special Forces Group and is now a professional MMA figther and sergeant first class with the Texas National Guard.
But Kennedy is saying, "Let those cowards come."
He joined Fox & Friends Weekend this morning to talk about his exchange over social media with alleged ISIS agents and his powerful message for terrorists.
Kennedy called the terrorists "a bunch of impotent, feeble, pathetic killers that were just trying to be tough guys online. They were tough guys to the wrong dude."
He said that after the FBI reached out to him to let him know that they were serious, but Kennedy said his experience has made him "desensitized."
"They use fear as a weapon," Kennedy said. "No, don't fear them. It takes sixty of them to even play with one SF guy. Don't fear 'em, don't give 'em credit. Don't call 'em ISIS, don't call 'em ISIL. They're Daesh (a name considered insulting by the group), and they do not deserve any recognition at all. This is the stance that every American should have."
