Christopher Lee Cornell is behind bars after confessing to a local television program that he is an ISIS supporter, and that he wanted to shoot President Obama in the head.
Cornell, called an Ohio television station, WXIX-TV, where he stated in an interview that if he did not get arrested he would have went to the capital and would have shot the President along with other government officials.
“I would have put it to Obama’s head, I would have pulled the trigger, then I would unleash more bullets on the Senate and House of Representative members, and I would have attacked the Israeli embassy and various other buildings,” exclaims Cornell.
The alleged planned attack was a retaliation against America for their war against the Islamic state, and Cornell went on to say, “the continued American aggression against our people and the fact that America, specifically President Obama, wants to wage war against Islamic State.”
Cornell said that there are currently members of ISIS located in every state of the United States, and told the interviewer, “We are more organized than you think.”
He then tried to defend his actions by saying, “They might say I’m a terrorist, but you know we see American troops as terrorists as well, coming to our land, stealing our resources and killing our people, raping our women.”
Cornell is currently awaiting trial. He is being charged with attempted murder of government employees and officials and solicitation to commit a crime of violence. If he is charged he could potentially be in prison for 40 years.
