FBI Director Continues to Warn of Potential Terrorism Against the Homeland

During an interview with NBC News on Tuesday, FBI Director Christopher Wray warned that the Bureau is “increasingly concerned [about] the potential for some kind of coordinated attack here in the homeland, which may be not that different from what you saw against the concert hall in Russia a few weeks ago from ISIS-K.”

The ISIS-K, or ISKP, attack against the Crocus City Hall in Moscow last month killed at least 145 people. The United States had warned Russia of the terror plot in the weeks before the attack, which was dismissed by Russian officials.

The statement mirror one made earlier in the month by Wray to the House Appropriations Committee, where he added that “Our most immediate concern has been that individuals or small groups will draw twisted inspiration from the events in the Middle East to carry out attacks here at home.”

While the United States has been at a heightened state of preparedness for attacks since the beginning of the Israel-Hamas conflict, there is currently no known or specified threats against the Homeland.
