Retired general’s dire warning: ‘We should go to DEFCON 1 …. We may even see a 9/11/14’

Retired Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney thinks the United States should “go to DEFCON 1, our highest state of readiness and be prepared as we lead up to 9/11.

McInerney made the comment Saturday in an appearance with Uma Pemmaraju  on Fox News Channel’s “America’s News HQ.”

“We may even see a 9/11/14,” he added.

“There’s a narrative gap,” McInerney said in response to Pemmaraju’s questions about border security and domestic threats from Islamic State. “The president thinks everything’s OK. Al-Qaida’s dead. He killed Osama bin Laden, but he’s three years behind in the narrative.”

The Air Force veteran called an “unchecked” Islamic State “an existential threat to the United States.”

“I’m not talking about two or three years from now,” he said. “I’m talking very, very soon.”
