This forecast “has provedfully true” after “a spring armed activity” in the country resumed. We remember, more than 4,200 civilians have been killed or wounded in Afghanistan this year.
Justin Nojan Sullivan, 19, had planned to commit mass murder in the name of ISIL after buying a semi-automatic AR-15 at a June 20 gun show in the southeastern state, the FBI said on Monday.

Sullivan was contacted by an undercover FBI agent on June 6, when he was offered help to join what Sullivan described as ISIL in North America, whose “doctrine is Guerilla Warfare in and out”.
