TULSA - Threat to the United States from the so-called "Islamic State" is very real, and he's monitoring the situation daily.
That's the word on ISIS from Rep. Markwayne Mullin (R-Okla).
Despite the fact that Congress isn't even currently in session, Mullin tells KRMG he's keeping a very close eye on the situation.
"Daily updates, conference calls on this," Mullin said. "I was very disappointed to see the President come out and say there was no plan moving forward. We've been asking for the plan."
The Obama Administration has authorized limited air strikes on some ISIS positions, but has so far not come out with a comprehensive plan to deal with what some call a more serious threat to U.S. security than even al Qaeda ever posed in its heyday.
"At our best guess, there's over 100 Americans over there fighting with ISIS," Mullin told KRMG. "And there's 500 Brits that are over there fighting from Europe that have passports, that can enter the U.S. without us even throwing a red flag. Those are the ones we know of."
He wants to see some leadership, he says.
"We've been asking and asking 'what's the move? Where are we gonna go? What's our plan? Would you like us to lead on this? Even though you're the Commander-in-Chief would you like us to lead?' because he is not, and we're going to have to address it. We cannot wait."
