Former NY Governor Pataki Says Al-Qaeda Had $500K During 9/11, ISIS Has $500 Million


Former New York Governor George Pataki does not agree with President Obama's plan for eradicating the Islamic State because he believes the group's wealth demands more.

According to Fox News, Pataki said in an interview earlier today that the monetary power of al-Qaeda 13 years ago pales in comparison to that of the Islamic State, therefore we need to stage a ground invasion before the group obtains more weapons.

He said,

Pataki, who served as governor during 9/11, also said that while he understands why nobody wants to see our troops risk their lives overseas, this may be our best chance at defeating the militant group.

In his opinion,

Pataki added that the US is currently under the greatest terror threat since 9/11 and urged the militaries of the Arab world to join our mission of destroying the Islamic State.
