Burr concerned about radical Islamic group’s threat to US


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — US Senator Richard Burr made some stops in the Port City today.

The two-term senator said 10 years ago, when he was on the House Intelligence Committee, there were about three things we would worry about before he went to bed at night.

Now,he says there are around 30.

Topping the list is the threat of ISIS, a radical Islamic group now causing problems in Iraq.

“I think ISIS is the number one terror threat in the world. They have more weapons, they have more money and they have more geography than Al Qaeda ever had,” Bur said.

He also said he thinks this group is more of a danger than Al Qaeda ever was.
