It's official: "Terrorism has gone viral" - *gasp*

Who knew?  Well, those of us paying attention, of course.  For years since the Global War on Terrorism was declared, some of us haave been pointing out the meaning of the name GLOBAL.  Even while politicians have consistently declared jihadist attacks are 'lone wolf' attacks and assured us that there is no need for alarm, there have been continuing daily reports of terrorist attacks both at home and around the world.

Now, today from JihadWatch comes this:

"Terrorism has gone viral"
May 10, 2015 By Robert Spencer
And the media is counseling appeasement. 

“‘Terrorism has gone viral': US officials, lawmakers warn of growing jihad-inspired attacks,”, May 10, 2015:

Top U.S. officials and lawmakers on Sunday intensified concerns about the growing threat of jihad-inspired terror attacks against the United States, after last week’s attempt in Texas and the dire FBI warning that followed.

“I think there’s been an uptick in the stream of threats out there,” Texas GOP Rep. Mike McCaul, chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security, told “Fox News Sunday.” “We’re seeing these directives on almost a daily basis. It’s very concerning. Terrorism has gone viral.”...


[McCaul] also said the terror threat now is “one of the highest that I’ve ever seen” and warned of similar incidents in the future.

“It’s going to get worse, not better,” he said. “This is very difficult to stop.”

Also on Sunday, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said the U.S. is facing a new phase of terrorism in which a so-called lone-wolf terrorist, inspired by Islamic State propaganda on social media, could “strike at any moment.”

The Obama administration has said the attack in suburban Dallas last week was a “lone wolf” effort…

'Lone wolf' my ***.   This despite viral evidence to the contrary.  Read the rest of this here.

Repeat after me:  What happens 'over there' is already here.
