The United States faces its highest Islamist terror threat environment since 9/11

That is NOT a headline that I made up. That is a direct quote from a recently publish memo entitled ‘Homeland Security Committee – Terror Threat Snapshot – December 2016.’ Below are a few excerpts from memo:

Page 2: The United States faces its highest Islamist terror threat environment since 9/11, and much of the
threat now stems from individuals who have been radicalized at home. Since 9/11, the nation has
seen 227 homegrown jihadist cases with a recent surge of 115 cases in 2015 and 2016 alone. ISIS’
shift in messaging—from joining the jihad in Syria and Iraq to carrying out attacks in fighters’ home
countries—is likely to accelerate this trend.

Page 2: The Iran nuclear deal—coupled with instability in Iraq, Syria, and Yemen—has reenergized
Tehran’s hardliners
and placed the regime in a stronger position to achieve regional hegemony.
Iranian aggression, particularly in the Persian Gulf, has become routine and remains largely
unopposed. If left unchecked, Tehran will continue to threaten United States’ interests at home and
abroad.

Page 3: November 28: Abdul Razak Ali Artan, an 18-year-old Somali refugee, drove a vehicle into a group
of pedestrians on The Ohio State University’s campus and proceeded to stab individuals with a
butcher knife. In a post on his Facebook page, Artan cited Al Qaeda cleric Anwar al-Awlaki,
referenced “lone wolf attacks” and stated, “America! Stop interfering with other countries, especially
Muslim Ummah [community]. We are not weak. We are not weak, remember that.” Within minutes
of the attack Artan was shot dead by a police officer.

Page 4: Refugee Programs Pose Risks
The National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) has identified “…individuals with ties to terrorist
groups in Syria attempting to gain entry to the U.S. through the U.S. refugee program.”
The Obama
administration has resettled nearly 13,000 Syrian refugees in the United States this past fiscal year.
American law enforcement and intelligence officials have repeatedly indicated that the U.S. lacks
reliable and credible intelligence to properly vet and screen potential Syrian refugees. Other refugee
programs in the U.S. also pose a risk, a Somali refugee that injured 11. Since 9/11,

Everything said here has been said by the Alternative Media for years. I think people within the United States’ government who have been tired of their hands tied felt emboldened to publish the truth. With Trump coming into power they wanted everyone to really know what is happening in our country. The question is, you as a voter, what are you going to do with this information? Are you going to hide it under a bushel basket or are you going to share the truth and let it shine? We have the power now to effect change. Don’t let it go.
