    An Islamic State (IS) laptop captured by a "moderate Syrian rebel group" reportedly contains bubonic plague recipes and information on weapons of mass destruction (WMDs). Foreign Policy reports that Abu Ali, commander of the rebel group, found the laptop in January after his men closed on a building from which Islamic State militants fled. The laptop "contains a total of 35,347 files in 2,367 folders." These include "documents in French, English, and Arabic" and "videos of Osama bin Laden." There are instructions for jihad and stealing vehicles and for making bombs and disguises.

    The nature of the threat the Islamic State poses to the West is a subject of much debate. Some indicate that the group is planning to execute attacks in the West at its nearest opportunity, while others say that the organization has designs only on capturing and holding territory in its neighborhood – and that’s a range of confused opinions coming from former and current administration officials. While there is a robust debate over whether ISIS is planning to execute terrorist attacks against Western targets, there should be no debate that the origination is actively seeking the capability to...

    For those of us who’ve been raising alarms about both the jihadist threat and the national-security vulnerability created by the Obama administration’s non-enforcement of the immigration laws, this is not a surprise — particularly less than two weeks before September 11. But it is nonetheless jarring to read. Judicial Watch has just put out this statement: Islamic terrorist groups are operating in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez and planning to attack the United States with car bombs or other vehicle born improvised explosive devices (VBIED). High-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed to Judicial Watch...

    Those current and former members of America’s intelligence community who are allowed to speak publicly have long been warning that ISIS poses a threat to American national security. George W. Bush’s former Deputy Assistant to the President and Deputy National Security Advisor Juan Zarate warned that Iraq has become “a cauldron of future terrorist threats to the west.” Obama’s former acting CIA Director Mike Morell observed that ISIS’s second goal after securing a caliphate in Iraq and Syria is to “use that as a safe haven to attack the United States.” Even Secretary of State John Kerry has cautioned...

    (CNN) -- The U.S. air strikes carried out Friday against ISIS are likely to have one unintended consequence: immediately increase the terrorist threat in Europe and the United States, Western counter-terrorism officials tell CNN. Within hours of U.S. military jets and drones conducting a strike on ISIS artillery that had been used against Kurdish forces defending Irbil, ISIS supporters called for retaliatory attacks against the United States. "It is a clear message that the war is against Islam and the mujahideen. The mujahideen must strive and seek to execute proactive operations in their own home, America, to discipline America and...

    Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. expressed “extreme, extreme concern” on Sunday over reports that bomb makers from Yemen responsible for the 2009 underwear-bomb plot are now in Syria cooperating with foreign militants there, possibly to develop new, nearly undetectable explosive devices. Asked on Sunday whether that threat was a “clear and present danger,” Mr. Holder responded: “I think it is. In some ways, it’s more frightening than anything I think I’ve seen as attorney general.”

    A day after the United States government warned of toothpaste bombs on flights to Russia, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has banned toothpaste--and all other liquids, gels, or aerosols--on flights between the United States and Russia. "As always our security posture, which at all times includes a number of measures both seen and unseen, will continue to respond and appropriately adapt to protect the American people from an ever evolving threat picture," a DHS official who confirmed the new liquid ban told ABC News on Thursday.

    A Transportation Security Administration agent has been accused of threatening to shoot coworkers at Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, according to multiple media reports. Jeno Vernelli Mouton, 35, has been arrested and charged with making a terroristic threat, a felony, the Houston Chronicle reported. According to the Associated Press, documents say Mouton told an airport supervisor on Jan. 25 that he wanted to vent instead of “come back and shoot up the place.” KPRC-TV reported that Mouton, who has worked at the airport for five years, was disgruntled with management and made the remark with coworkers and passengers nearby.
