Terror Plots Against U.S. at Record High, Department of Homeland Security Says

The number and pace of attempted terror attacks against the U.S. are at a record high, surpassing the number of attempts during any other one-year period, the Department of Homeland Security said in a recent memo.

In an alarming DHS intelligence report dated May 21, the department said terrorists will plot attacks against the U.S. with "increased frequency" and that groups like Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula have "expanded their focus" to target Americans.

"We have to operate under the premise that other operatives are in the country and could advance plotting with little or no warning," reads the memo, which was first reported by ABC News.

  • I can venture a guess. Obama has dropped our "war on terror" and now we have more terror attempts.

  • They have been saying that off and on for 9 years. And we do not have a wimp in the White House. Please try to be civilized and be kind. Just because you hate the President is no reason to assume it is alright for you to lie about him. He is NOT the friend of terrorists either. That is a disgusting thing for you to say......

  • What part of "Homeland Security says RECORD HIGH" don't you understand, Gertie? That means it's higher than it's ever been in the past. Not everyone hates Obama. Most of us just think he is doing a lousy job.

    Good way for you to duck the question, though.

    We have increased terror attempts because terrorists think they can succeed. They think that because Obama has poor leadership skills and hasn't shown a backbone in foreign policy.

  • Libs don't want to admit that the Bush years after 911 were the safest years we have had, Even before Obama became President , terrorists were giddy knowing they would be able to do damage to America and their allies. I'm not going to be surprised when it happens again. It has and the the only reason it hasn't been worse has been luck. There was nothing Obama or this administration did to stop the tries they have made already.

  • i don't think there are any more threats or attempts, i think there is just greater transparency. there were plenty of threats and attempts covered up under the previous administration.
