Quote of the Day

"As the Western world wrestles with its response to last week's jihadist attacks in Paris, we know more attacks are coming. I noted Friday that the head of MI5, Britain's intelligence agency, warned that Al Qaeda was planning mass casualty attacks against Western targets. Yesterday, Senator Dianne Feinstein, the former chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, told CNN, "I think there are sleeper cells not only in France but certainly in other countries and, yes, in our own. So it should come as no surprise that ISIS issued a new call for attacks on police and military personnel over the weekend. Here's an easy thing for the president to do: Obama, Eric Holder, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson should stop all police-bashing and should call for a moratorium on the demonstrations that continue to be marked by anti-police rhetoric. They are contributing to a hostile atmosphere at a time in which the police are increasingly targeted by Islamists and other radicals."
