The FBI is re-evaluating prior terrorism cases and tips to ensure that nothing was overlooked during the previous investigations.
A top official told the Associated Press that the review of tips of terrorism cases over the past three years is an effort to “err on the side of caution.
The idea is to “refine and adapt to the threat, and part of that is always making sure you cover your bases,” the official said.
One eye-opening revelation over the past several years is that people under investigation for terrorism ended up committing acts of extremism.
One of the was the Orlando nightclub shooter, who was known to the FBI as a potential terrorist.
