U.S. Authorities Worried That Next Terror Plot Could Originate from ISIS Terrorists

Authorities are worried that the next 9/11-like terror plot could come from the increasingly violent Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) that is claiming to have killed about 1,700 Iraqi soldiers, CBS News reports.

The situation is getting increasingly more dangerous as Islamic militants continue to sweep through Iraq.

“You’ve got motivation mixed with opportunity, ideology and foreign fighters and all of that looks like a very extreme version of Afghanistan in the ’90s, plus what was happening in Iraq after the Iraq war,” said CBS News National Security Analyst Juan Zarate. “This is a cauldron of future terrorist threats to the west.”

Zarate said the group poses dangers to the U.S.

“I think the grave threat here is that you have the seeds of a new terrorist movement emerging very aggressively.”

Sen. Lindsey Graham agrees.

“The seeds of 9/11s are being planted all over Iraq and Syria,” Graham said. “They want an Islamic caliphate that runs through Syria and Iraq…and they plan to drive us out of the Mideast by attacking us here at home.”
