January 1, FBI Director: Terror Risk Skyrockets to Unprecedented Levels

Published

on

FBI Director Christopher Wray testified Tuesday that the terror threat facing the United States has reached unprecedented levels since the Oct. 7 attack on Israel.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S. C., asked Wray to describe the current “threat matrix” facing the United States at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing.

“What I would say that is unique about the environment that we’re in right now in my career is that while there may have been times over the years where individual threats could have been higher here or there than where they may be right now, I’ve never seen a time where all the threats or so many of the threats are all elevated, all at exactly the same time,” the FBI director replied.

“So, blinking red lights analogy about 9/11 — all the lights were blinking red before 9/11, apparently,” Graham continued. “Obviously, all of us missed it. Would you say there’s multiple blinking red lights out there?” he asked.

He later told Graham that since the Oct. 7 massacre in Israel, when Hamas terrorists brutally murdered at least 1,200 Israelis, a “veritable rogue’s gallery of foreign terrorists” has called for attacks against the U. S.

“The threat level has gone to a whole nother level since Oct. 7,” Wray emphasized.

The director’s comments on Tuesday echo what he said in October, when he warned Senate lawmakers, “The actions of Hamas and its allies will serve as an inspiration the likes of which we haven’t seen since ISIS launched its so-called caliphate several years ago.

Attorney General Merrick Garland said in October that reported threats against Jewish, Muslim and Arab communities in the United States spiked in the days and weeks after the start of the Israel-Hamas war.

The number of attacks on U. S. military bases overseas by Iran-backed proxy groups rose in November as well, with the Pentagon confirming at least 74 attacks on U.S. troops stationed in the Middle East since Oct. 17.

The 74 attacks on U. S. troops have taken place in Iraq and Syria and began on Oct. 17 by Iraqi militia groups. The attacks are reportedly linked to the U.S.’s support for Israel in its retaliation against the Palestinian militant group Hamas, following its attack on Oct. 7.

The attacks do not include ballistic missiles being shot in the direction of U. S. military vessels, which commanding officers on those ships have ordered to be shot down.

At home, the FBI and Las Vegas police this week foiled an alleged “lone wolf” terror plot by a teenager who pledged support to ISIS. On Friday, a 16-year-old suspect was arrested, and federal agents found components to build an explosive device and terrorist propaganda, officials said.

The arrest was made after the suspect allegedly made special media posts announcing his plan for “lone wolf operations in Las Vegas against the enemies of Allah.”

Why It Matters (op-ed)

FBI Director Christopher Wray’s recent testimony highlights the alarming reality that the United States is facing an unprecedented terror threat. The horrifying massacre in Israel on October 7th has emboldened terrorists worldwide, and the threat level has skyrocketed since.

The rise in attacks on U.S. military bases and the foiled “lone wolf” plot in Las Vegas demonstrate that our enemies are more determined than ever to strike. We need to take these blinking red lights seriously and prioritize national security above all else.

The Biden administration must take decisive action to protect American lives and interests, both at home and abroad. Failure to do so will only embolden our enemies and put more innocent lives at risk.

    At least our “secure” borders under the “Biden” administration have not allowed terrorists to enter the US. (Satire)

    Soooo when are we going to close the border to all of the fighting age males coming across it, especially from countries like Yemen, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Syria, China, Somalia etc… It’s NOT just Mexico, Central and South American that are flooding our country and getting free stuff, money and airfare or bus rides to their desired location. WHAT in the WORLD is going on other than the planned destruction of the country or at least to set us up to declare Martial Law using the Patriot Act.

    thank you Joe Biden. we have never seen this country or any of the others in such dire straits. all because of you and your weakness. you are not a leader, you have always been a follower. never had an idea of your own just stealing from those much smarter than yourself. all of this can be laid directly at your feet and the feet of all that enabled you to become president. the next terror attack that the U.S. experiences will go down in history with your name attributed to its cause. how many terrorists have you let in unvetted? what is the purpose of this? how can you just let anyone walk in, give them a visa pre-paid, fly then to any place in this country, and not know where they end up? or what their intentions are? has to be the laughingstock of the world. you are letting our demise occur, and even funding it, thanks Joe. s. l.

    gee, THAT only took 2 months. Talk about cutting edge, in real time, letting your employer (We the People) know all about this…. NOT. I’m sure he meant to say “domestic terrorist” White supremacist and Trump supporters. Need to round them up, you know, like Mar-A-Logo, go looking for evidence, AFTER you ignore obvious evidence (Hunter la[top, cocaine in White house, and other demon-rat law breaking. do you “feel” safe in Amerika?
