A chilling video released a year ago is getting new attention after the terrible concert shooting in Las Vegas.

In summer of 2016, ISIS released a propaganda video that urged members of its sleeper cells to hit key American cities with terror attacks.

The video eerily singles out the Las Vegas strip as a desirable target, and tells members to commit shooting attacks like the one at the Pulse nightclub in Florida that claimed 49 lives.

In light of the similarities between the Mandalay Bay shooting, and the directives given in the video, perhaps we should take seriously the claims that Stephen Paddock was an active member of ISIS who converted to Islam months ago.

We must urge authorities to release clear and comprehensive details on what happened, and what motivated the shooter, as soon as they are available. If this was an ISIS-inspired attack, the American people deserve to know!
