FBI warns police against ISIS threats
Washington – A new warning from the FBI tells police officers to be on alert for sudden terrorist threats because of the ISIS killing of American journalist James Foley.
Top U.S. officials said that ISIS can’t be defeated without addressing its safe haven in Syria and if the Obama administration sees a threat of terrorism, it will take action.
U.S. officials won’t say how many Americans are being held hostage by ISIS, who recently demanded $130 million dollars in exchange for Foley.
The U.S. government is adamant that it will not pay ransom money for hostages.
The White House said it did everything it could to bring the hostages home.
“We used all our military diplomatic resources we could bring to bear to find out where hostages are and rescue them,” said Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes.
A bulletin sent by the FBI Friday to law enforcement agencies across the nation urge them to be vigilant for threats from ISIS.
The bulletin said that there are no known credible threats right now and this is just a precaution, but there are clear concerns.
