Terror Threat Snapshot [September 2016]   [open pdf - 797KB]

The September 2016 "Terror Threat Snapshot" provided by the House Homeland Security Committee focuses on "The ISIS [Islamic State of Iraq and Syria] Terror Threat in America". Some of the key points include: "[1] Islamist terrorists will continue to pose a significant threat to the United States and its allies -- ISIS and its supporters, undeterred by battlefield setbacks, have now been linked to 105 plots targeting Western interests globally. [2] ISIS, al Qaeda, and other Islamist extremists have built a global network of sanctuaries they can leverage for directing and inspiring terrorist attacks. [3] Radical Islamists are exploiting everything from social media applications, including encrypted technologies, to refugee flows to improve their ability to recruit adherents and conduct terror operations."
