DNI: 2014 Was Deadliest Year for Terror Attacks in 45 Years

Terrorist attacks and resulting deaths increased sharply last year, according to statistics made public Thursday by the director of national intelligence.

โ€œWhen the final counting is done, 2014 will have been the most lethal year for global terrorism in the 45 years such data has been compiled,โ€ DNI Director James Clapper told Congress, adding that about half of all attacks took place in three states: Iraq, Pakistan, and Afghanistan.

Last year from January to September, around 13,000 terror attacks were carried out, killing 31,000 people. By contrast, in 2013, 22,000 people were killed in terrorist violence in over 11,500 attacks, Clapper disclosed during a wide-ranging world threat briefing before the Senate Armed Services Committee.

More than 3,400 foreign jihadists have joined the al Qaeda offshoot known as the Islamic State (IS) that is showing signs of establishing its own nation state, Clapper said.

Beginning to look like a very big no-go zone over there...

2. 2 war torn countries and a terrorist backing country had issues with terrorism in 2014?

Wow, color me surprised.

Best thing I guess we can do is get our young people to join the military and send them over there to be the targets so we can get those numbers down some.

I mean - it is our job and responsibility right? If we don't send our people we get the blame for the attacks, right?

I wonder if that means we are to blame for that attack in Missouri today where 9 people died? Or maybe....maybe we just need an occupying force here to help us stop our own local issues. China has a huge army and can spare some people.

5. One thing you have to remember about people on the Left. They care nothing about right

v/ wrong, rule of law, constitutional authority, even reasonableness of actions. They care about Feelings. Feelings controls their every move. They "feel" for Obama, so no matter how many deaths he's caused and will cause prior to his possible end of term, it doesn't really matter because he ostensibly "feels" for people, God, logic, laws, etc notwithstanding.

4. I honestly don't know why

John Kerry and MarieHarf aren't laughed out of the room they're speaking in

Obama IRRESPONSIBLY ended the Iraq war and gave birth to ISIS


Quite a legacy

9. The last GOP President lost ~3000 Americans, in America, in about 2 hours.

Its fun watching the RW demand that the American President act as if he was the world's police chief.

11. And this endangers us how?

I live in a Cleveland suburb.

A newish terrorist group escalates actions in the ME and, to a much lesser degree, Europe and this is supposed to make me feel unsafe?

Hype, hype, hype.

13. thanks obama.

Maybe we should ask james taylor to have some kind of concert. That's is the 0bama regimes way of addressing terror attacks. Well that and droning women and children from the Oval office.

15. Well that puts the "Christians here in America are just as bad" argument to rest.

He numbers are so far off as to not even be comparable.

"But Dr. Tiller!"

"But hundreds per day".
