They must not have gotten the "just a handful of nuts that have nothing to do with ISLAM" Memo

WASHINGTON — In a dramatic assessment of the domestic threat posed by the Islamic State, FBI Director James Comey said Thursday there are "hundreds, maybe thousands" of people across the country who are receiving recruitment overtures from the terrorist group or directives to attack the U.S.

Comey said the Islamic State, also known as ISIL, is leveraging social media in unprecedented ways through Twitter and other platforms, directing messages to the smartphones of "disturbed people'' who could be pushed to launch assaults on U.S. targets.

"It's like the devil sitting on their shoulders, saying 'kill, kill, kill,''' Comey said in a meeting with reporters.

The FBI director's comments come in the midst of a federal investigation into a foiled attack in Garland, Texas, involving two ISIL sympathizers, one of whom, Elton Simpson, was long known to federal authorities.

Comey said Thursday that hours before the attempted Garland attack, FBI agents sent a bulletin to local authorities indicating that Simpson may have been interested in traveling there from Phoenix to attend the conference featuring controversial cartoon depictions of the prophet Mohammed. At the time, Comey said, agents did not have specific information that Simpson had targeted the meeting.

The 30-year-old Simpson and associate Nadir Soofi, 34, were fatally shot by a police officer Sunday night after the pair launched a bungled attack on the conference.

ISIL's sophisticated recruiting campaign poses persistent threat in U.S.

Simpson had been known to authorities since 2006 when he surfaced in a separate terror investigation. He was subsequently convicted in 2011 and sentenced to three years probation. A new investigation into Simpson's activities was opened in March after he posted suspicious statements on social media, Comey said Thursday.

The FBI director declined to elaborate on why agents alerted Garland authorities to Simpson's possible interest in the local event, though he said there was "no reason to believe he would attack or that he had left'' his home in Phoenix.

Comey also said there was no information to suggest that police in Garland connected the information provided in the bulletin to Simpson at the time Simpson and Soofi were shot.

The director said the Texas case is emblematic of a larger concern facing counter-terrorism authorities related to ISIL's aggressive pursuit of U.S.-based and other converts.

Oh yes, because thousands of people are murdered here everyday due to Islam. Oh wait...

We spend billions annually and devote a lot of man power, to make sure the 1000's that were killed on 9-11 because of Islam, does not happen again .

And yet we spend very little to deter the hundreds of thousands of people killed here because of guns.

4000+ people were killed in 9/11 and every year since then. So about 4300 people have been killed in the last 15 years. 4500+ people have been killed by gun violence since January of this year. That 6 months versus 15 years. And yet, we talk about radical Islam and how it's a problem here. Guess there's something more sinister when someone says God is great in Arabic than some dude killing folks without saying a word.

http://amanpour.blogs.cnn.com/2013/01/15/more-americans-killed-by-guns-than-by-terrorists/

In 2010, 13,186 people died in terrorist attacks worldwide; in that same year, in America alone, 31,672 people lost their lives in gun-related deaths, according to numbers complied by Tom Diaz – until recently, a senior analyst at the Violence Policy Center.

While the United States government has invested more than half a trillion dollars on homeland security since the September 11,, 2001 attacks, according to the Congressional Budget Office, there has been practically no effort to deter gun violence.

Right. So let's recap.

4000+ people were killed in 9/11 and every year since then. So about 4300 people have been killed in the last 15 years. 4500+ people have been killed by gun violence since January of this year.

Really? I didn't know Adam Lanza and James Homes were black? Or what about that guy who slaughtered his family of 5? Or the dude who killed his girlfriend and friend? Or Eric Frein?

We don't talk about the sacrifices to the tree of liberty.

We spend billions annually and devote a lot of man power, to make sure the 1000's that were killed on 9-11 because of Islam, does not happen again .

We spent trillions to kill 10s of thousands of innocents elsewhere.

If black folks are responsible for 50% of the murders, who accounts for the rest? Or is that acceptable losses?

96 Percent Of Shooting Victims In NYC Are Black Or Latino

According to statistics released by the NYPD, the majority of crimes committed in the New York City area are in minority neighborhoods, and they are high!

Statistics for shootings, murders, and felonies are over 80% in each category. These crimes are typically committed by minorities towards other minorities.

These statistics fuel Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly’s controversial Stop and Frisk Policy which has enraged civil liberties advocates and minority group leaders.

Statistics show that 96% of shooting victims, 89% of murder victims and 81% of felony victims are part of a minority group (either black of hispanic). 97% of all those pulling the trigger, 86% of murder suspects, and 88% of felony suspects are also part of that minority group.

Citing an NYPD analysis of stats for the first six months of the year, Kelly said Wednesday that 96% of shooting victims are black or Hispanic — and in 97% of all shootings, the trigger was pulled by other blacks and Hispanics.
