ISIS scumbag behind fatal Istanbul suicide bombing

In tonight's State of the Union address, will President Obama claim that the Islamic State is contained?
If so, he'll be wrong. Again.

From CNN:
The suicide bomber who killed at least 10 foreigners Tuesday in a popular central Istanbul tourist area belonged to ISIS, officials said -- an attack that shows the group's nerve, reach and capacity for terror.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan initially said the attacker had Syrian roots. A short time later, Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu went one step further, saying the man responsible for the blast came from outside Turkey and was a member of ISIS, the terror menace that has entrenched itself in neighboring Syria and Iraq while proving willing time and again to lash out worldwide.

"These terrorists (are) targeting the whole of civilization," Davutoglu said.

At least nine German nationals died in the attack between the Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque tourist attractions in Istanbul's cultural and historic heart, said a Turkish official who declined to be named. Davutoglu indicated that the 15 wounded were from inside and outside his country.
Syria? Isn't that where many of the migrants Obama wants to take in come from?
