The FBI is increasingly conducting undercover operations to investigate American suspected of supporting ISIS.

The New York Times found that stings are used in about two-thirds of the terrorism cases, a significant increase over the past two years. 

Nearly 90 Americans have been charged for allegedly supporting ISIS.

The FBI’s secret operations involve agents and informants who pose as bomb makers, jihadist and gun dealers. The agents have helped suspects acquire weapons, bombing targets and routs to Syria.

“We’re not going to wait for the person to mobilize on his own time line,” said Michael B. Steinbach, who leads the F.B.I.’s national security branch.

He said the F.B.I. can’t afford to “just sit and wait knowing the individual is actively plotting.”
