“FBI tells Fox News it is building command centers around US to monitor terror threats over July 4 holiday” Fox affiliate WTTG-TV in Washington reported federal agencies have sent out warnings to police departments around the country:
“The FBI, Homeland Security and the National Counterterrorism Center are all warning local law enforcement about a heightened concern involving possible terror attacks targeting the July 4th holiday.”
”National security analysts say the warning is different and serious this year because of ISIS. They point to U.S.-based extremists who just this year launched attacks in Boston and Dallas and an arrest of a Virginia teenager for helping a friend join ISIS.”
ABC News recently reported the FBI has investigations in all fifty states to track and disrupt ISIS-inspired terror attacks:
“The FBI is in the midst of a broad campaign to disrupt potential terrorists inspired by ISIS, with several arrests expected before July 4th, law enforcement officials told ABC News.
“The latest arrest that is part of this campaign came Saturday in New York, where a college student thought al Qaeda was getting soft and “making efforts to prepare an explosive device for detonation,” according to the FBI.
“Hundreds of investigations are underway in all 50 states. Many involve suspected ISIS supporters, authorities said.”
