On September 16, there were multiple media reports of an ISIS sympathizers message boards encouraging “lone wolf” terrorists to attack Times Square.
In posts titled, “To the Lone Wolves in America: How to Make a Bomb in Your Kitchen, to Create Scenes of Horror in Tourist Spots and Other Targets,” lone wolves are encouraged to bomb New York.
The post included bomb-making instructions which is notable because of today’s announcement from Iraq’s prime minister that captured ISIS militants told Iraqi intelligence agents of a plot to attack subways in America.
Multiple Obama administration officials have denied knowing in advance about any plot involving mass transit to attack America’s largest city.
