JOE SCARBOROUGH: That was a scene, opening scene of Homeland for this season, which, Willie, that was on a couple of months ago. I happened to be watching it the morning after Paris and it's unbelievably telling because they do have a strategy. They can identify their enemy. They can call us out by name. They know exactly what they're going to do. They know how they're going to do it and they know that they're going to die doing it. They have focus. We have absolutely no focus. We have no strategy. We have candidates that won't even mention our enemies' name by their name. It's frightening.

WILLIE GEIST: That was dramatized but just a little bit, right? I mean it was pretty close to the truth. We had the guest on earlier who said this is an Islamic cult. And what he meant by that is they seek this end times fantasy where they draw infidels into their territory and have a war and the armageddon is upon us. That is their goal and they're following very, very old early text from Islam and that's the goal.
