Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel with the wind-up:

The Islamic State poses a greater threat to the United States than al Qaeda did leading up to September 11, 2001, top brass at the Pentagon acknowledged on Thursday, discussing the crisis fast unfolding in eastern Syria and northern Iraq.

“This is beyond anything that we’ve seen,” Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel said, speaking to journalists with Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey. “We must prepare for everything.”

And Marie Harf delivers the pitch:

Deputy State Department spokesperson Marie Harf on Wednesday condemned the beheading of American journalist James Foley by Islamic terrorists, but she also stated that the ISIS threat “is not about the United States and what we do.”

Harf spoke after President Obama told the nation that “governments and peoples across the Middle East” should come together in a “common effort to extract this cancer, so that it does not spread.” He then went golfing.

Hagel says ISIS is a greater threat to the U.S. than al-Qaeda leading up to 9/11, and the State Department’s deputy spokesperson claims it’s “not about the United States”? President Obama is apparently siding with Harf on this one.
