Rep. Issa: ISIS is Middle East’s Top Concern
Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) was on “Sunday Morning Futures” to discuss turmoil in the Middle East and his recent visit to the region.
In Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan and Israel, Issa said the number one concern is ISIS, its expansion and its impact on the entire region.
Maria Bartiromo asked Issa if he thinks ISIS is a threat to the U.S.
“I do, simply because if they solidify this nation – if you will – that’s being formed in parts of Iraq and Syria, and then begin expanding from there, they’ll have the base in which to launch terrorist attacks and very clearly they have a willingness to kill and kill in mass and not to obey any of the rules of war.”
Issa also discussed the IRS scandal, calling Lois Lerner a “partisan political activist” and saying we likely will not get more information from her.
