Terror Threat Snapshot [December 2017]   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Homeland Security Committee website: "Washington, D.C. - House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul (R-TX) today released December's 'Terror Threat Snapshot', a monthly assessment of the Committee's continuing effort to highlight the growing threat America, the West, and the world face from ISIS [Islamic State of Iraq and Syria] and other Islamist terrorists. Chairman McCaul: 'While we have crushed the caliphate in Iraq and Syria, ISIS remains a threat world wide. The loss of the terrorist safe haven that ISIS once enjoyed is forcing the group the shift tactics and strategies. We can already see these changes evidenced by their calls for violence in America and Europe during this holiday season. As we near the one year anniversary of the Berlin Christmas market attack, we are reminded that jihadis will continue to target the West. We must remain vigilant and strengthen our security to prevent more people from being radicalized and do all we can to thwart potential attacks.'"
