VOA: Homeland Security Chief: Global Terror Threat Has Entered ‘New Phase’

WASHINGTON - U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson says the fight against global terrorism has entered a new phase with groups like the Islamic State (IS) successfully using social media to inspire others to join them or to launch domestic attacks. Johnson’s comments Sunday on the ABC program This Week followed the revelation that federal law enforcement has hundreds of investigations underway to determine who might pose a threat of homegrown terrorism.

Secretary Johnson noted the Islamic State group’s ability to reach into the homeland to recruit homegrown jihadists.
