Analysis of ISIL-Inspired Activity in the United States
This Reference Aid provides an overview of Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL)-associated activity in the United States between January 2014 and December 2015 linked to US persons (USPERs) assessed to be inspired by the group. This analysis is derived exclusively from open source material, including criminal complaints and federal indictments. It is intended to inform state, local, tribal, and territorial government and law enforcement officials and private sector partners about the wide range of ISIL-inspired activities in the Homeland, and provide insight into emerging terrorist trends, which may aid in the detection and prevention of future terrorist activities. This product does not include any information about USPERs believed to be abroad or about the July 2015 attack against military facilities in Chattanooga, Tennessee, which is still under investigation.
