American homegrown violent extremists all had links to radical Muslim Islamist’s and close to one third were found to be plotting terrorist attacks in the United States and were caught either before or after executing the attack, the Clarion Project (CP) reported.
The Clarion Project report is based on the dramatic rise of foiled terrorist attacks in the United States and, a recent report found at least 75 “homegrown violent extremists” were operating across the U.S. in 2015. Of those extremists, nearly half tried to travel overseas – presumably to join terror groups – but only four percent succeeded.
CP stated that the New Jersey’s Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness report also showed that 65 of these extremist were affiliated with the Islamic State (ISIS), while the rest were linked to al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), the Nusra Front, or other Islamic extremist groups and ideologies issued the report.
CP also stated that further damaging, the New Jersey agency reported that radicalized extremists were able to enter, operate, and even thrive in the U.S.
“In 2015, homegrown violent extremists demonstrated an ability to operate in New Jersey and throughout the United States while connecting with like-minded individuals online and acting independently from organized terrorist groups,” security officials said. “Since late 2014, a variety of radical groups such as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) have encouraged extremists to attack in their home countries.”
Islamic extremists were found to be operating in several states on the East Coast as well as in Ohio, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Alabama, Kansas, Texas, and southern California.
Adam Kredo of the Washington Free Beacon stated, “Congressional attempts to investigate the immigration histories of at least 113 foreign-born individuals snagged on terror charges since 2014 have been stymied by the Obama administration. There remain at least 1,000 open investigations into ISIS members residing in the United States.”
“At the same time, the Obama administration is preparing to resettle at least 10,000 Syrian refugees in the United States in fiscal year 2016 by shortening the security screening process from around two years to about three months. Around 85,000 refugees will be resettled in the U.S. in total this fiscal year, “Adam Kredo of the Washington Free Beacon said.
President Obama and his administration continue to push and bring thousands of additional Syrian refugees into the country, despite the national security risks, turmoil, and acts of terrorism and violence already plaguing in Europe that will eventually become a reality in America.
In Germany alone, Migrants committed 208,344 crimes in 2015, according to a confidential police report that was leaked to the German newspaper, Bild.
