ISIS collapse: al-Qaeda recruits fleeing jihadists to renew their terror campaign

Islamic State and other groups are planning another terror attack of September 11 magnitude, a top US security chief has warned.

Elaine Duke, Donald Trump’s acting Secretary of Homeland Security, said jihadists were using knife and van attacks to keep their members engaged and their finances flowing as they plot another “big explosion”, The Times reports.

Mrs Duke said at the US embassy in London that intelligence is pointing to extremists plotting to take down planes to inflict mass civilian casualties.

She said IS is currently in an “interim” period focusing on a much bigger endgame.

    Barry dropped leaflets to warn ISIS of bombing

    “leaflets telling Syrian truck drivers to run for their lives”

    “About 45 minutes before A-10 Thunderbolt II and AC-130 Spectre gunships attacked, fighters made low passes over 116 oil truck tankers in eastern Syria last Sunday to drop leaflets.”

    • Islamic theology is the problem.

      Deal with the problem, or expect more of the same.

      Arrest the mullahs and any devout muslim. Destroy all the mosques. Confiscate all monies associated with the mullahs and mosques. That will slow down things.

  • Manual Paleologos

    ISIS, Al Qaeda, Taliban, Whippy Dippy Haji Guys, and all the alphabet soup of terrorism, draw on a sort of primordial soup of disaffected mopes that swirls and pools around the moslem world. All it takes is a spark, or maybe a hand grenade, to create another terror group. But they are all the same people.
