(NBC NEWS) Islamist militants controlling parts of Iraq and Syria have purportedly released a new audio recording warning Americans that "you will not feel secure even in your bedrooms." The statement allegedly features Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) spokesman Abu Mohammed al-Adnani but its authenticity could not immediately be verified by NBC News.
According to a translation by security firm Flashpoint Partners, the recording calls President Barack Obama "vile" and "mule of the Jews" and accuses him of being "more foolish" than President George W. Bush. The U.S. has carried out more than 170 airstrikes targeting ISIS, and Congress voted on Friday to arm and train moderate Syrian rebels against the group.
"Mobilize your forces, roar with thunder, threaten whom you want, plot, arm your troops, prepare yourselves, strike, kill, and destroy us," the statement added.
