Decades after 9/11 the US is at risk again by dangerous terrorists: Former FBI counter-intel officer warns

President Joe Biden made a speech at the Pentagon about Sept. 11 and spoke out against the kind of extremism that led terrorists to fly into American buildings, killing thousands.He told the group beyond the structure that the main thing that they can do is to keep on standing up against the powers that are attempting to subvert a majority rule government.

While the anti-democratic forces may have been al Qaeda 21 years ago. Today, there is a fear that right-wing extremists, militia groups, white supremacist organizations and neo-Nazis are growing in power and conducting their own attacks.One gathering plotted to capture and kill a lead representative, slam their vehicles into dissenters, open fire on dissidents, and undermine nearby authorities, political decision laborers and government judges.

“I think Biden’s speech actually hit the mark in terms of anti-radicalization strategy,” said former FBI deputy director of counterintelligence Frank Figliuzz. “That is to call out what you see as violent conduct, conduct against democracy, and offer somebody another option, which is membership in another group, a group called civil society.A gathering called a vote based republic. You must call it out when you see it. And afterward you must offer another option. That is an enemy of radicalization procedure.”

He went on to say that after Sept. 11, a lot changed and the country came together. That hasn’t been the case since Jan. 6 and the Capitol was attacked by our own people.

“The question is, here we are on the anniversary of 9/11,” he continued. “Sept. 11 was about an external threat. It was about a nation who was resilient, who came together, took a punch to the gut, recovered, and showed resolve so it would not happen again. We saw an incredible shift in our intelligence community. The FBI remade itself to fight that external threat. Laws were passed, including the Patriot Act, with many different rules and operation techniques. Agencies were created, the Department of Homeland Security, a massive organisation, with new authorities and responsibilities. Jan. 6 happens, internal threat, not external threat. No new agencies. No new laws. We still don’t have a domestic terrorism law on the books. We’re trying to fight the battle, but with a greater challenge, which is the insider threat. The threat is us. It’s a different, more challenging threat.”

VP Kamala Harris noted in a NBC interview that there are 11 individuals who don’t put stock in American majority rules system campaigning for a position to lead a popularity based process.

“There is an irony here. Isn’t this ironic that it’s our own system, our freedom of speech, our freedom of assembly that causes that reticence of our law enforcement, understandably, because of our constitutional rights and liberties, to actually take action before the bomb goes off? Before the insurrection, before the violence occurs. It makes it very, very difficult to do,” explained Figliuzzi. “And that’s the challenge here.”

When it comes to Harris’s comments, Figliuzzi cited a report from last week listing off members of the Oath Keepers militia that were law enforcement, elected officials and members of the military.

“Law enforcement officers, including police chiefs and sheriffs, were quick to deny, if there’s any glimmer of hope there, that they have any active role or that they actually aligned with the Oath Keepers anymore. But that is the inside threat,” he closed. “Our own framework that we need to sort out some way to manage to traverse this. America needs to conclude what it needs to be the point at which it grows up. We are as yet youthful. We are as yet exploratory. This isn’t a done deal. This is certainly not guaranteed. We must battle for a majority rules system, to be.”
