‘ISIS in America’: New Study Looks At the US Jihad Problem

A US study published in early December attempts to profile Islamic State (IS) group sympathisers in America, from those who merely post messages of support on Twitter to those planning an actual terrorist attack.

    According to FBI director Comey it’s getting harder and harder to detect terrorism because of technology.

    This scares the heck out of me, because I know its going to get a lot worse before it gets fixed and those republicans were really scary last night. Maybe Obama needs to show hes doing something.

    the ______________ problem, fill in the blank. the only way the republicans can exist is through their constant negativity, fear, and hate. i fear them far more than i do a threat far less than my chance of winning a large lottery prize.

    Everyone needs to stop running in fear and stop and think, just how dangerous are the Jihadists? Go all the way back to the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center that was not very successful through the present time with the California attack. There are relatively few successful attacks on our homeland because of the efforts of the NSA and the FBI as well as local law enforcement. If one was listening to the debated last night you would sweat that their have hundreds or perhaps thousands of successful attacks by Middle East nuts. Well, there have not been and it is unlikely that there will be. Now, if one is concerned about nut cases carrying out mass shootings there maybe a little more to worry about. Not much, but a little more. The people to worry about killing you is someone you are acquainted with or a relative you might have because statistics say that is where you most likely murderer will be found. Roughly 10,000 people are murdered each year and 75% of them will be committed by a friend or relative of the victim. Most will be an act of domestic violence. So, stop worrying so much about outside forces such as terrorists, and worry more about the people around you that are not radicalized. They are just plain nuts or pissed off. More people will died of good old garden variety murder than terrorists every year for a long time to come. But don’t try to tell that to a Republican, because they have to believe in a boogie man in order to get elected.
