FBI Rounding Up Islamic State Suspects


fbi1The FBI has been rounding up potential “lone wolf” terrorists in response to the perception of a mounting threat of domestic attacks inspired by the Islamic State.

Since the thwarted attack on a “Draw Muhammad” conference in Garland, Texas, on May 3, the Justice Department has announced the arrests of 10 individuals it says were inspired by and supporting the Islamic State. Lawmakers say there have been more arrests that have not yet been announced.

The FBI has shifted its approach toward arrests rather than keeping suspects under surveillance.

The recent arrests are “an indication that the increased number of threads of threats…is at the highest level that most of us have seen since 9/11,” Chairman Richard Burr of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence told us in an interview.
