U.S. Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco revealed that over 100 federal investigations have been initiated in response to the October 7 terrorist attack by Hamas against Israel.
She highlighted the current threat environment, emphasizing concerns about individuals or small groups radicalized online and influenced by various ideologies, leading to potential lone wolf terror attacks.
Additionally, she noted an increase in violence and threats against the Jewish community, with nearly 2,000 reports investigated by the FBI, resulting in over 100 criminal investigations. (Trending: Joe Biden Emailed Hunter’s Business Associates 54 Times)
“I think we are in a very, very challenging threat environment,” Monaco said.
“During 9/11 our focus was on sophisticated plots driven by foreign terrorist organizations with catastrophic effect.”
“Today I think we’re in a unique moment where what we’re most worried about are individuals or small groups who are often radicalized online and who are motivated by and influenced by a range of ideologies from foreign terrorism and foreign terrorist organizations to domestic grievances.”
She noted that some groups are getting “twisted inspiration from conflict overseas and from the very searing images that we’re seeing that came out of the brutal, brutal terrorist attacks that occurred on October 7th.”
