From Mad World News: In a late Sunday evening interview, FBI Director James Comey gave a chilling warning to America, and we should take the matter seriously.
MSN reports that while appearing on CBS’s 60 Minutes, Comey warned that the al-Qaeda affiliate Khorasan could still be working on a plan to attack the United States at home.
“Khorasan was working and may still be working on an effort to attack the United States or our allies, and looking to do it very, very soon,” he said to host Scott Pelley. “I can’t sit here and tell you whether it’s their plan is tomorrow or three weeks or three months from now.”
However, the director did say they’re taking the threat very seriously.
“Given our visibility, we know they’re serious people, bent on destruction. And so we have to act as if it’s coming tomorrow,” he said.
It’s not only the al Qaeda-linked group that we have to worry about either, according to Comey.
“Ultimately, an American citizen, unless their passport’s revoked, is entitled to come back,” he said. “So, someone who’s fought with ISIL, with American passport wants to come back, we will track them very carefully.”
Such a prospect is troubling, considering that Comey believes the so-called “lone wolves,” which he said should be called “lone rats” to better describe who we’re dealing with, are the biggest threat America faces.
He called them “troubled souls” who are looking for a purpose in a misguided manner. “So they come across the propaganda and they become radicalized on their own, independent study, and they’re also able to equip themselves with training again on the Internet, and then engage in jihad after emerging from their basement.”
While it’s not certain that an attack will happen, such a warning should be taken very seriously, especially after radical Islam appeared to play a role in the beheading of a Oklahoma woman. We all know it’s only a matter of time before we’re hit again, it’s just a matter of which group is most likely to do so.
