A TOP FBI counter terror cop has described fighting terrorists like a game of “whack-a-mole” as he revealed the chilling extent of the threat facing the US.
Michael Mcgarrity, assistant director of the Counter-terrorism Division, revealed an average of two suspected terrorists are arrested every week in the US.
He compared it to the fairground favourite, where players have to bonk fake moles as soon as they pop their heads up out of the board.
The top cop chillingly revealed that a jihadi can attack in just 30 days once radicalised.
He said every FBI bureau in all 50 states is working on terror investigations – with up to 3,000 currently under way across the US.
