Future ISIS leader told soldiers 'I'll see you guys in New York' in 09

As he was being released from an American detention camp in Iraq in 2009, the man who will go on to head the powerful ISIS group issued a menacing warning to his former captors.

'I'll see you guys in New York,' Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi reportedly told U.S. Army reservists from Long Island who had been guarding him at Camp Bucca near the Kuwaiti border.

Army Colonel Kenneth King, who was the commanding officer of the U.S. forces' largest detention facility in Iraq in 2009 was one of the people who heard al-Baghdadi’s parting words, but he did not take them as a threat at the time.

We have to be as brutal to them as they continue to be to us - our namby-pamby responses will continue to endanger our citizens lives.

This disease needs to be eradicated with a higher priority than cancer or AIDS as it also has a great chance of affecting our way of life!
