  • 900 FBI Extremist Investigations Mostly ISIS-Related

    http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/p...obes/74455460/



    WASHINGTON — FBI Director James Comey said Friday that federal authorities have an estimated 900 active investigations pending against suspected Islamic State-inspired operatives and other home-grown violent extremists across the country.

    In a speech to intelligence officials, Comey initially indicated that all 900 of the inquiries were ISIL related. Later, officials said the vast majority involved ISIL but the number also included other U.S.-based extremists.

    Still, Comey said that the total number of inquiries is "slowly climbing" as ISIL has sought to expand their reach into the U.S., targeting largely young, disaffected potential operatives through a provocative social media campaign.

    The national scope of U.S.-based extremist inquiries has been the subject of much recent discussion. But rarely has there been a public reference to a number of such investigations.....


    "Something has happened that is flattening the curve (the number of travelers)," he said.







    Yeah, Comey, maybe they've decided to be more stealth/hide better....

    Bingo. No real surprises there. Until we get some competence back in government, we're going to continue to lose this damned war.

          It's a problem when YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter won't block and delete their accounts.
          I yell "PIKACHU" before I tase someone.

            No. It's a problem in that POTUS ordered that only White extremists be publicized. There IS NO Islamic terrorism in the US...

            ****ing retarded.

              Recently, I was listening to Michael Savage on the radio, and he had good things to say about the season premiere of "Homeland" (season 5, episode 1, 10-4-15, Showtime). More accurately, he praised a 4-minute speech given by the Peter Quinn character, at CIA Langley, to a room full of high-level CIA and military people. The speech was about ISIS, and what their strategy is, and what our strategy is. Peter Quinn represented the kind of person who understands what motivates ISIS and where their ideology comes from. The rest of the people in the room represented our government, which has deliberately unlearned what it used to know, about that ideology and that motivation. I thought the speech was interesting. You can watch the full episode here, after a 30-second commercial. The speech by Quinn starts at the 11-minute mark:

                That phrase "deliberately unlearned" is especially scary. Why? Because that is exactly what has happened.

                  Max, just for what it's worth, be very careful about conflating hokey shows like this with reality. They manage to capture some truths but are pretty much fantasy in most respects. Probably in the same way real cops make fun of "COPS" or other cop shows.
