ISIS-inspired terrorism in the US--A levelheaded view on what to expect


Must-read:

A terror expert clearly and calmly explains the risk of "lone wolf" ISIS attacks in the US

A snip:
Bottom line? The risk of online radicalization inspiring a lot more attacks in the United States is fairly low — and even if a future attack does happen, there's a decent chance it might be a "normal" mass shooting, resulting principally from personal problems, even if the attacker claims to be acting in ISIS's name.
This is where we are I guess--hoping for only a "normal" mass shooting.
