Increased security in the U.S. has forced terrorist groups to target Americans overseas instead.
“The enemy is going to find an easier way. They’re gonna find softer targets, they’re gonna find ways that they can hurt us and it may not be bringing it to America in hijacked airplanes. It may be doing things when we’re not looking, in places that are vulnerable and every embassy is vulnerable if you think about it,” said Smullen.
The government has also issued a global travel warning for all Americans overseas. It will remain active until at least August 31st.
