ISIS takes aim on America's best-assassination threat

In its aim to destroy America, ISIS is apparently targeting the brightest, the most vital members of our government which would crumble if they were killed:

"Federal law enforcement officials are taking an ISIL threat against Michele Bachmann so seriously that Capitol Police have given the Minnesota Republican her own security detail.

An online threat against Bachmann emerged recently, according to multiple law enforcement officials familiar with the situation. Last week, Bachmann was provided a security detail in response, according to the sources"

Although my dark side is hoping she gets part of Obamas team and Obama upgrades.
