Video Transcript:

ISIS is gaining affiliates among extremist groups around the world. They are signing up, these groups are signing up for what ISIS desires as its objective – a global caliphate. In the mind of ISIS, its global caliphate would extend to the United States of America itself. ISIS has gained affiliates faster than al Qaeda ever did. From nothing a year ago, there are now militant groups in nearly 20 countries that have sworn allegiance to ISIS.

Well, I don’t think they’re gaining strength. What is true, is that, from the start, our goal has been first to contain and we have contained them. They have not gained ground in Iraq. And in Syria it, they’ll come in, they’ll leave but you don’t see this systematic march by ISIL across the terrain.

But that’s exactly what the former CIA Director says they are capable of.
