’1 in 7′ #Syrianrefugees has ‘sympathies toward #ISIS’



A leading terrorism expert says 9/11-style attacks are less likely today, but smaller plots are far more likely – and that makes diligent screening of refugees or any other immigrant vital for the strength of U.S. national security.

As the nation marks 14 years since the terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center, Pentagon and in Pennsylvania and three years since the deadly assault on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, the likelihood of another grand assault on America’s homeland is far more remote.

“In terms of radical Islamic terrorism, we’re certainly [better] prepared because of all the lessons learned since 9/11. So I’d say we’re safer from a 9/11-style attack that’s more sophisticated and, therefore, more easy to intercept,” said Ryan Mauro, a professor of homeland security and a national security analyst at the Clarion Project.
