Dozens of Americans are communicating secretly with ISIS
President Obama continues to invites more refugees to America
FBI Director James Comey admitted early Thursday, that dozens of Americans are secretly communicating with the ISIS terror group. Comey has been warning for months that when ISIS supporters find someone in the U.S., through messages on social media, they then employ software that encrypts their communications, making it impossible for the FBI to follow them, even with a court order. The director of the National Counterterrorism Center, Nicholas Rasmussen, said 28,000 people have traveled to areas controlled by ISIS over the past three years, including 5,000 from western countries and 250 from the United States. Several senators expressed concern that terrorists could be among Syrian refugees seeking to come to the U.S.
Comey said that over the summer FBI agents were following “dozens and dozens” of people all over the United States, and that the Bureau “disrupted a lot of those people.” But, he said, ISIS is relentlessly spreading its message over social media. Comments from Comey came during testimony before the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, he appeared with DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson and National Counter-terrorism Center Director Nick Rasmussen. When ISIS recruiters find a supporter, they move to end-end encryption.
