Terrorists inside America plotting attacks ‘each and every single day’
“We’ve seen an unprecedented spike in homegrown terrorism,” Kelly disclosed. “These are the cases we know about—homegrown terrorism is notoriously difficult to predict and control.”
Terrorists in the United States are plotting attacks “every single day,” according to Kelly.
“I tell you, without exaggeration, they try to carry out this mission each and every single day and no one can tell you how to stop it. No one,” he said.
The United States, he continued, is “under attack” from a wide variety of bad actors, including “failed states, cyber-terrorists, vicious smugglers, and sadistic radicals.”
“And we are under attack every single day,” he said. “The threats are relentless.”
Those who slip over the border undetected, including criminals and potential radicalized terrorists, pose an unparalleled threat to the country.
“We don’t get to vet them,” Kelly said. “We don’t know their intentions. We don’t know they’re here. They slip into our country unnoticed, living among us, and we are completely blind as to what they are capable of.”
These threats just scrape the surface of the danger posed to America by terrorists inside and outside of the country, Kelly said.
“This is all bad news, but it gets much worse,” he explained. “Experts estimate that perhaps 10,000 citizens of Europe have joined the caliphate in Syria and Iraq. Thousands more are from nations in Asia, Africa and the Western Hemisphere. They have learned how to make IEDs, employ drones to drop ordnance, and acquired experience on the battlefield that by all reports they are bringing back home.”
Federal authorities have open investigations into radical Islamic terrorists in all 50 states, accor
