THEY SAY ISIS IS DEVELOPING ADVANCED BOMB-MAKING SKILLS AND CULTIVATING A ROSTER OF FOREIGN SUICIDE BOMBERS WHO COULD TARGET THE US AND EUROPE.

ISIS PUTS OUT DAILY PROPAGANDA -- VIDEOS SHOWING ITS BRUTAL ATTACKS.

THE VIDEOS CAN'T BE INDEPENDENTLY VERIFIED, BUT THE INTENTIONS ARE CLEAR.

UPSOUND: "Obama we are coming for you!"

"Really the holy grail is to attack in the west, attacks in London, attacks in the US. This is what they strive for. This is a concern of US intelligence."

THERE IS ONE SAVING GRACE, ISIS -- SAVAGE AND INTOLERANT -- IS GENERALLY LOSING SUPPORT WHEREVER IT GOES.

IN A BAGHDAD MOSQUE TODAY, IRAQI SHIITES EXPRESSED DISDAIN FOR THE GROUP.

"THEY ARE HATED," HE SAYS, AND MANY SUNNIS AGREE.

BUT HATED OR NOT, ISIS HAS CARVED OUT A HAVEN IN THE HEART OF THE MIDDLE EAST. THAT MAY NOW BE THE MOST DANGEROUS TERRORIST SANCTUARY IN THE WORLD.

"Some Americans have also been attracted to this fight. US officials say around 70 Americans at one stage or another fought in Syria, about a dozen or so remain there now. US officials are equally concerned however about the hundreds of fighters with European passports which could make it somewhat easier for them to travel inside the United States and potentially carry out an attack.

A FEW PASSING DOWNPOURS

Tuesday morning starts with temperatures in the mid and upper 70s across Southwest Florida with just a few clouds. Through the day we'll see mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies.

Tropical Storm Arthur has formed off the central Florida coast, becoming the first named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami says a tropical storm watch is in effect for the state's east coast, from Fort Pierce to Flagler Beach.

The storm's maximum sustained winds late Tuesday morning are about 40 mph. The center says Arthur is expected to strengthen in the next 48 hours. The storm is forecast to produce rainfall accumulations of 1 to 3 inches, mainly across the eastern Florida peninsula.

The storm is centered about 95 miles southeast of Cape Canaveral and is moving northwest at 2 mph.
