Leading into another 9/11 anniversary, the normal al Qaeda scarefest is nowhere to be found. This year's fearmongering is all about ISIS, and September started by taking the rhetoric up a notch.
Back in August, it was all about how ISIS is tremendously well-funded and like nothing the Pentagon had ever seen and another 9/11 was on the way.
