As news of the terror threat rising, at military bases across the country, you have to wonder why. Well, since the events in Garland, Texas unraveled, it seems that ISIL has amped up the rancor and has been actively recruiting U.S. based operatives.
Yesterday, FBI Director, James Comey announced there may be thousands of terrorists being called to action, in attacks against the United States. He also mentioned that social media is exploding with disturbing messages directing them to “kill, kill, kill.”
USA Today reports that the threats come amid an investigation of the thwarted Garland Texas attack and an ISIL sympathizer Elton Simpson.
The FBI director’s comments come in the midst of a federal investigation into a foiled attack in Garland, Texas, involving two ISIL sympathizers, one of whom, Elton Simpson, was long known to federal authorities.
U.S. authorities are likening the internet chatter and recruitment activity to post 9/11 attacks.
Indeed, Comey said that ISIL recruiters operating from safe havens in Syria are making initial contacts with recruits, mostly on Twitter, and are then “steering” them into encrypted venues where their subsequent communications are “lost to us.”
“The haystack is the entire country,” Comey said. “We are looking for the needles, but increasingly the needles are unavailable to us. … This is the ‘going dark’ problem in living color. There are Elton Simpsons out there that I have not found and I cannot see.”
Comey said agents are working hundreds of investigations around the country involving suspected homegrown violent extremists.The director said the inquiries are open in all 56 of the FBI’s field divisions.
