February 3, 2015: Washington (CNN) – President Barack Obama said a new video that purports to show ISIS burning a Jordanian pilot alive in a cage is “just one more indication of the viciousness and barbarity of this organization. And it, I think, will redouble the vigilance and determination on the part of a global coalition to make sure that they are degraded and ultimately defeated.  It also just indicates the degree to which WHATEVER IDEOLOGY THEY’RE OPERATING OFF OF, IT’S BANKRUPT.”  (CtH: CAPS mine)

Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, the top-ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said the execution should “unite a coalition against ISIS. If you let this kind of brutality dominate, whether it’s the Middle East or North Africa, whether it’s the world, just think of what the world and those areas will be like. The brutality, I think, is unprecedented.”  (“Will be like”? Has she been keeping up with the news?! Good grief!)

Lt. Gen. Vincent Stewart, Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, told the House Armed Services Committee, that ISIS has been able to extend its reach beyond its bases in Iraq and Syria. “With affiliates in Algeria, Egypt, Libya, the group is beginning to assemble a growing international footprint that includes ungoverned and under governed areas” and that the numbers of foreign fighters flowing in and out of Iraq and Syria is “troubling.”
