FBI warning: ISIS looking to attack military in U.S.

The FBI warning members of the U.S. military that ISIS is calling for attacks against them, saying "overseas based individuals are looking for like-minded individuals in the U.S. to carry out these attacks."

The new FBI bulletin goes on to say "We also request members of the military review their online social media presence for any information that might attract the attention of violent extremists."

Officials fear copycat attacks similar to those against Canadian military members - including the October 22nd shooting in Ottawa.

Republican Congressman Peter King is OutFront. He sits on both the Homeland Security and Intelligence Committees.
