John Brennan, CIA Chief warns that Islamic terrorists may take another launch for horrific attack after paris.
In his bleak statement, the senior US intelligence official added that future tragedies may not be foiled because Europe’s security services being severely overstretched.
He said: “A lot of our partners right now in Europe are facing a lot of challenges in terms of the numbers of individuals who have traveled to Syria and Iraq and back again, and so their ability to monitor and survey these individuals is under strain.”
While there has been no official confirmation that Islamic State was behind the atrocities in the French capital or the downing of a Russian plane that killed 224 on 31 October, Mr Brennan said both disasters “bear the hallmarks” of the group.
The comments came as France, Belgium and others stepped up their efforts in a manhunt for suspects of Friday’s attack that killed 129 people, as three connected groups of militants targeted a music concert, a football match and several restaurants.
