FBI Director Warns 'Terrorist Diaspora' Will Come to the West

Hundreds of terrorists will fan out to infiltrate western Europe and the U.S. to carry out attacks on a wider scale as Islamic State is defeated in Syria, FBI Director James Comey warned.

“At some point there’s going to be a terrorist diaspora out of Syria like we’ve never seen before,” Comey said Wednesday in New York. “We saw the future of this threat in Brussels and Paris,” said the head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, adding that future attacks will be on “an order of magnitude greater.”

Comey’s blunt warnings echo those of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, who has scoffed at Obama administration efforts to defeat Islamic State extremists in Syria and Iraq. Nonetheless, the FBI chief’s comments reflect a consensus among U.S. intelligence officials that the group inevitably will strike out abroad as it continues to lose ground militarily under attack from a U.S.-led coalition.

So now that they haven't done anything for so long, do something now. Government's first job is protect us.

Why is Comey even bothering when the current administration is exempt from anything he can complain about?

Trump needs to fire Comey and remove his pension.

After letting a proponent (and great beneficiary) of the "Two Sets of Laws" theory, violate our nation's national security (and doing a TV announcement of her trangressions!!), and then GIVES HER A PASS (you and I would be doing interviews from PRISON), he has become useless and ineffective.
His legacy is shot and his prior reputation for integrity DISAPPEARED in 30 minutes.
And he knows it, too. I wonder what threat or reward he got for destroying a lifetime of integrity to save a CRIMINAL???
Keep cheering.

Not while you have a spineless POS in the Whitehouse that refuses to harm his terrorist brethren. Why this scumbag hasn't been tried for treason boggles the mind. Instead we gave him a Nobel peace prize. WTF????
