DNI John Clapper put it bluntly, that he expected ISIS to attempt attacks on the U.S. homeland this year. Of particular concern to intelligence officials, is the homegrown threat… U.S. citizens, galvanized by the extremist message, who act on their own in perpetrating a terrorist attack, without attempting any contact with outside terrorist groups, providing the opportunity to be intercepted by surveillance.
