An Interactive Timeline of Islamist Terror Plots Since 9/11

Terror Plots In United States Since 9/11

This page is The Heritage Foundation’s compilation of all Islamist terror plots and attacks against the U.S. homeland since 9/11 according to publicly available records. The list does not include activities that are merely linked to terrorism, such as traveling abroad to join a terrorist organization, but each plot requires some threat directed at the U.S. homeland. Additionally, the primary motivation of the terror plot or attack must be a radical Islamist ideology, which supports the use of violence as a means to achieve the long-run objective of imposing Islamic law, i.e., sharia. As this timeline makes clear, the threat of Islamist terror remains real and the U.S. must remain dedicated to defeating terrorism at home and abroad.

The Heritage Foundation tracks Islamist terror plots and attacks since 9/11 and as the 14th anniversary of that fateful day approaches, it is important for Congress and the American people grasp the continuing threat of terrorism. To that end, Heritage has produced an interactive timeline for each Islamist terror plot against the U.S. homeland. As the number of terror plots has grown past 70, depicting the plots on a traditional timeline has also become increasingly cumbersome. Instead, this interactive timeline provides a succinct summary for each plot, supplementary media, and additional resources for further reading. This new timeline will be updated after each future plot or attack and existing content updated on a periodic basis.

As depicted by this timeline, the threat of terrorism is not receding. Congress should maintain a proactive approach to combatting terrorism, ensuring that law enforcement and intelligence organizations have access to legitimate investigative and surveillance tools. The need for effective counterterrorism operations, though, does not relieve the government of its obligation to follow the law and respect individual privacy and liberty. In the American system, the government must do both equally well. The U.S. should also support stronger action against Islamist terrorist groups abroad to combat those forces radicalizing individuals to attack the U.S.

Adding to this, all of the open ISIS investigation cases we have in all 50 states. We need more manpower. Thank goodness for that Executive Order by Trump.

McCaul: ISIS Investigations Open in All 50 States

"We've arrested over 70 ISIS followers in the United States over the last year," the Texas Republican told Fox News' "Fox and Friends" program. "We have active investigations in all 50 states and over 900 active cases against potential ISIS followers."

And while there is not a specific threat, said McCaul, he takes all leads seriously, saying there has been some Iraqi intelligence in which threats against the U.S. and Europe were discussed.
