Pentagon Moves to Beef Up Security At Military Bases Due to ISIS Threats

In light of threats from ISIS, the security level at U.S. military bases has been raised the highest level since the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. More from Fox News

The level, known as "Bravo," is the third of five levels of alert and means increased security at military posts across the country. A day earlier, FBI Director James Comey offered blunt remarks about the domestic threat from ISIS sympathizers, saying hundreds and possibly thousands of people in America are following ISIS on social media and consuming their "poison."

A Defense Department statement described the elevated alert level as a “prudent measure” to help mitigate threats.

“The USNORTHCOM Commander raised the baseline Force Protection Condition as a prudent measure to remind installation commanders at all levels within the USNORTHCOM area of responsibility to ensure increased vigilance and safeguarding of all DOD personnel, installations and facilities,” the statement said. “This change, in addition to random drills or exercises, is a mean to ensure that we effectively execute our force protection mission."

The heightened alert means additional security measures can be taken including stricter inspections of vehicles and IDs on military posts across the country. On the heels of the decision, the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force in Ohio canceled a scheduled concert for Friday night, citing "elevated security measures."

Meanwhile, the FBI is admitting there are potentially "thousands" of ISIS sympathizers living in the U.S. and possibly willing to carry out attacks.
