An ex-GOP lawmaker is warning the spread of radical Islamic terrorism proves we're in "World War III," and condemns President Barack Obama's lack of leadership, saying America "will pay the price," the Christian Post reports.

In a panel discussion hosted by the Family Research Council, former Virginia Rep. Frank Wolf charged the Obama administration and Congress are standing by while ISIS, Boko Haram, the Taliban, Al Shabaab and other jihadists continue atrocities against religious minorities, the Christian Post reports.

"There is a connection between Boko Haram – they pledged to ISIS," Wolf said, the CP reports. "There is a connection to al-Shabaab in Somalia. There is a connection to what took place in Libya. We saw what took place in France. We saw what took place in San Bernardino. We are in World War III."

"Congress should be dealing with this," he added. "Forget the administration. Hold extensive hearings. Bring in the best political minds… We will pay the price. We will pay it now or pay it later."

Wolf decries the lack of leadership in the Oval Office, the CP Post reports.

"We just don't have a leader like we had in President Reagan or in Winston Churchill or in President Kennedy or in President Truman," he said. "Do you think if this was taking place during the Truman administration, President Truman would just be doing nothing? Of course he would be doing something, and so would the Congress."

"If we don't speak, we are saying we really don't care," he added. "They are coming and they are coming to kill people. We are in World War III and Congress and the administration is going to have to deal with it or else very bad things are going to happen in the world."
