FBI Director Comey: ISIS-Inspired Attacks Targeting Fourth of July Were Foiled

Federal agents likely disrupted a terror attack on the Fourth of July weekend by making dozens of arrests in the last four weeks, FBI Director James Comey said Thursday.

“I do believe our work disrupted efforts to kill people, likely in connection with July 4,” Comey told reporters at FBI headquarters in Washington, NBC News reports. 

U.S. authorities were worried about an attack on the holiday weekend.

Comey said ISIS-inspired actions often don’t involve elaborate plots and usually are spontaneous acts.

“It’s actually hard to figure out when they’re trying to kill somebody,” Comey said. “And you cannot say, ‘Well, we’ve got to do it on the Fourth.’ Because you know you have people who are motivated to kill people, and they are unreliable in terms of when they’re going to act.”

Some of the arrests over the past four weeks would have targeted the holiday weekend, Comey said.

“We made the arrests to thwart what we thought they were up to,” he added. “Some of them were focused on the Fourth of July, and that’s as specific as I can get.”
