(Worthy News) - US authorities thwarted plots to kill people in the United States around the July 4 holiday, arresting more than 10 people who were inspired by Islamic State online recruitment, FBI Director James Comey said on Thursday.

Comey told reporters more than 10 people inspired by the Islamic State's recruitment online have been arrested over the past four weeks, some of which were focused on attacks around the July 4 holiday.

FBI and the Department of Homeland Security issued a warning to local law enforcement to be on alert for attacks around July 4. No such attacks occurred. [ Source ]

Comey noted that one of the ways ISIL differs from "your grandfather's Al Qaeda" is that it doesn't rely on long-plotted, deliberate attacks, but rather uses people who are "highly unpredictable" and who would be rejected as Al Qaeda operatives. ISIL uses a mix of directing, exhorting and inspiring those individuals to commit violence, Comey said. [ Source ]

  1. In Memphis there were more fireworks in the neighborhoods than anyone has ever experienced before George...God is very present in Memphis though. ISIS is not welcome. I attribute the increased explosions to the overall Spirit of Lawlessness that has gripped the country from the top down.
