Christopher Cornell, the Ohio man who was arrested over plots to bomb Washington DC on behalf of ISIS, warned a radio station in a recent interview that ISIS have a presence in many U.S. states and are ready to attack.
In the interview, Cornell issued some chilling warnings:
“I got orders from the brothers overseas because I’m with the Islamic State. My brothers over there, in Syria and Iraq, gave me specific orders to carry out jihad in the west, so I did so.”
“What do I think is coming? Many things. There will be many, many attacks. Like I said, we are ready for the battle over the Capitol.”
“We are pretty strong. Yes, yes. In every state like I said. We’re in Texas. We’re in Ohio. We’re in New York City. We’re in Washington, DC. We’re in every single state you can name, just about.”
In the interview, Cornell also admitted that had he not been arrested by the FBI he would have carried out his plan to attack the US Capitol and Israeli Embassy with pipe bombs and firearms.
