Testifying before Congress, James Comey, the Director of the FBI, warned that once we destroy ISIS in the battlefield, we need to be prepared for a period of heightened terrorist threats that will last for years.
When ISIS and its “caliphate” are destroyed, survivors will escape to the Europe and the U.S.
They won’t be content to simply live their lives as peaceful citizens. They’ll plan out and execute attacks. Scattered and separated, they’ll be much more difficult to track and stop.
According to Comey and other experts, during that time—in the years following the collapse of ISIS—we’ll be more vulnerable than ever.
Military plans are being drawn up to take back Mosul in Iraq.
That means if what Comey says is correct, in the next few years, we’re likely to see terrorist attacks here on the same scale that Europe has been experiencing in the last two years.
