In face of genocide, too many in Washington complacent about defeating ISIS: Video of my Fox News interview with Shannon Bream on #TheThirdTarget.

Are U.S. and Western political leaders too complacent about defeating ISIS? Shannon Bream interviews me on Fox News.

Are U.S. and Western political leaders too complacent about defeating ISIS? Shannon Bream interviews me on Fox News.

On Sunday, I was interviewed on the Fox News Channel by anchor Shannon Bream. We discussed The Third Target, the horrors of the Islamic State, and the dangers of becoming complacent in the face of emerging genocidal conditions.

Here is the video (it runs 4:44 minutes).

Here’s an excerpt from what I shared:

“You’ve got a quarter of a million people dead now in Syria. You’ve got the largest number of murders and deaths in Iraq this past year, 2014, since 2006-7. And it’s getting worse, because the Islamic State is literally beheading people, crucifying people, slaughtering people, selling little girls into sexual slavery. It’s a horrific situation. And yet I’m concerned, Shannon — and one of the reasons I wrote the book — about complacency. Too many political leaders in Washington are becoming complacent about how serious a threat ISIS really is, and the stakes. A year ago the President told us that ISIS was not a threat, that they were a ‘JV’ team. Last summer, he said ISIS was engaged in genocide. Well, okay, if they are engaged in genocide, why is this such a slow-moving process of defeating them? And what The Third Target does — fictionally — is take us into a world in which they are not defeated, in which they capture chemical weapons, and then all Hell breaks loose, far worse than what we currently see.”
