Terrorist threats have become more complex and diverse than before.
On June 6, [2018], an American Reaper drone killed four Islamic State fighters near Bani Walid, Libya, about 110 miles southeast of Tripoli, Libya’s capital. A week later, another Reaper killed a Qaeda operative 50 miles southeast of Bani Walid. Ten days later, in central Yemen, American airstrikes attacked Qaeda fighters in the contested central Hadramout region. (Schmitt, 2018, para. 28)
Retaliation has become a standard terrorist tactic. It is unconfirmed yet suspected through U.S. Intelligence Community activity that members of global terrorist groups have already entered U.S. soil by air, land, or sea.
