Far from being “contained,” radical Islamic terrorists operating in Syria are “expanding globally and plotting aggressively,” Homeland Security Committee Chairman Rep. Michael McCaul told Congress on Wednesday.
“ISIS is now responsible for more than 60 terrorist plots against Western targets, including 18 in the United States,” McCaul said.
“Here at home, we have arrested more than 70 ISIS supporters over the last year. That’s on average more than one per week, and the FBI says it has nearly 1,000 ISIS-related investigations in all 50 states. If this is not a war, then I don’t know what is.”
