Homegrown terrorists to target concerts, sporting events, DHS warns

by Rowan Scarborough - The Washington Times  |  published on September 27, 2016

U.S.-based terrorists are likely focused on mass killings at festivals, concerts, sporting events and other outdoor events, says a confidential report by the Department of Homeland Security’s intelligence and analysis branch.

The Sept. 23 warning was issued in the wake of a string of bombings in Manhattan and New Jersey for which an Afghan-born Muslim, Ahmad Khan Rahami, was apprehended in a gun fight.

The report says the “most likely tactics” would involve “edged weapons, small arms, vehicle assaults and possibly IEDs [improvised explosive devices], said the report, a copy of which was obtained by The Washington Times.

The Islamic State terror organization has urged Muslims on social media to use vehicles to achieve mass killings, as was done in July in Nice, France, by an IS-inspired killer.

“I&A assesses that commercial facilities—such as festivals, concerts, outdoor events, and other mass gatherings—remain a potential target for terrorists or HVEs, as they often pursue simple, achievable attacks with an emphasis on economic impact and mass casualties,” the Homeland Security report said.”

    Terrorist attacks at concerts or sporting events would be likely because the attacker would be able to injure/kill a large number of people at one time.

    Clinton’s website gives ISIS her full plan to defeat them, kind of like Obama telling ISIS EXACTLY what day and time the US was vacating Iraq.
    DHS, following Clinton, and Obama’s lead, is fostering terror by telling ISIS, and the American public, what probable soft targets will be targeted.

      From now on America and Americans come first!
      Vote for Trump and Pence make America greater than ever before!
