Homeland Security Warns of Possible Terror Attack in Washington D.C.
ISIS has managed to violently spread their influence across the Middle East and as we know they have inspired many attacks across the country including the devastating massacre in Paris.
It is well known that ISIS has plans of launching more attacks in Europe and the United States and now we are learning that the Department of Homeland Security is warning Americans of a possible attack in our nation’s capital.
Homeland Security officials are raising the chilling possibility of a terrorist attack at hotels or conference centers in Washington, D.C., in the wake of a ISIS video warning of a Paris-style attack in the United States, according to a research group that collects data on radical Islamic terrorist groups.
The bulletin doesn’t mention any specific intelligence or concerns about an imminent attack, according to the Investigative Project on Terrorism, which posted news of the bulletin on Friday.
But earlier in the week, an English-speaking ISIS jihadi posted a chilling warning of an attack on America “very soon,” the Daily Mail has reported.
“Paris isn’t far from you – we will by Allah’s permission do to your country what we did to Paris,” the terrorist declares in the video, the Daily Mail reports.
“We will kill, slaughter and burn your people. Inshallah (God willing), we will attack you very soon with anything we lay our hands on.”
According to IPT, the bulletin was prepared, with FBI participation, by the Washington Regional Threat Analysis Center, the National Counterterrorism Tracking Center, and the District of Columbia Hotel Security Director’s Association.
