While the rest of the American population was working to plan their 4th of July weekends, the FBI was working vigilantly to make sure that our homeland was safe from ISIS. In the weeks leading up to the 4th of July, the FBI made several arrests in connections with ISIS and 4th of July attacks intended to kill Americans, according to FBI Director James Comey.
From NBC News:
“We made the arrests to thwart what we thought they were up to,” he added. “Some of them were focused on the Fourth of July, and that’s as specific as I can get.”
He declined to say how many of those arrested were planning to carry out attacks or to describe the nature of what they were planning.
Some of those arrested, he said, had been using end-to-end encryption programs to communicate with ISIS.
He said that ISIS usually goes on the spur of the moment attacks and have really simple plans. Apparently the 7 Ps of planning weren’t involved in ISIS training. Prior proper planning prevents piss poor performance. That’s something that we here in America do well when it comes to terrorists.
I said it yesterday, and I’ll mention it again: The USA military, counter-terrorism units, CIA, and FBI are just too powerful. You can come at us, but we aren’t going to be backing down to anyone. In the meantime, if you guys over at ISIS need a little refresher on what we’re capable of, peep this vid:
