Not only is he a popular sitting U.S. Senator and author who ran for president earlier this year, but Marco Rubio can also predict the future.Appearing on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” Rubio spoke about the increased threat of global radical Islamic terrorism, and predicted that Turkey was primed for a terrorist attack, and would not be surprised” if an attack occurred over the “next few weeks.”
I would not be surprised over the next few weeks to see major ISIS operations within Turkey, itself.-Marco Rubio
Marcodamus called it. Radical Islamists have killed 41 people and wounded scores of others in a group suicide attack at Istanbul’s international airport.
And no, he didn’t stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.
Rubio: I think this actually makes NATO more important, apart from the European monetary union and economic union, the issue of NATO needs to be reinvigorated more than ever before.FTN: Because of the threat from Russia?
Rubio: I think not only because of the threat from Russia, but most certainly because of the threat of radical Islam, now coming across the Mediterranean and into Europe. We’ve seen already the attacks in Belgium. We’ve seen the attacks in France. We’ve seen attempted and thwarted attacks elsewhere, so because of all of that I think NATO takes on a special purpose. One of our NATO allies, right now, that faces the greatest threat of ISIS is Turkey. I would not be surprised over the next few weeks to see major ISIS operations within Turkey, itself.
Rubio’s prediction can be found at approximately the 1:48 mark of the video.
