Attempted attacks on U.S. is at all-time high

Department of Homeland Security expects “increased frequency” of terror attacks


The Department of Homeland Security has confirmed what Maclean’s recently reported in a cover story: the U.S. is indeed a land of constant terror. In a new report, the agency says “the number and pace of attempted attacks against the United States over the past nine months have surpassed the number of attempts during any other previous one-year period.” The DHS also warned that other operatives are likely at work on plots within America’s borders that are increasingly difficult to detect. That’s because the individuals behind these attempts, including Najibullah Zazi, who plead guilty to plotting to attack New York’s subway system and Faisal Shahzad, who attempted to bomb Times Square, spent a long time in the U.S. and used materials that are easily obtained in America.
