FBI Director: Islamic State now a bigger threat than al Qaeda

Friday, July 24, 2015 | Tag Cloud Tags: , ,

(Worthy News) - According to FBI Director James Comey, U.S. military strikes have diminished the threat posed by the al Qaeda offshoot Khorasan Group, but the Islamic State still poses a significant threat, the Washington Examiner reported.

"The threat that ISIL presents and poses to the United States is very different in kind, in type and degree than al Qaeda," Comey told CNN's Wolf Blitzer. "ISIL is not your parents' al Qaeda. It's a very different model. And by virtue of that model, it's currently the threat we are worried about in the homeland most of all."

"If you imagine a nationwide haystack, we are trying to find needles in that haystack. And a lot of those needles are invisible to us either because they are communicated or just because they have communicated in a place that we can't see them," he said from Aspen, Colo. "And knowing there are needles out there that you can't see is very worrisome." [ Source ]
