FBI: 35 terrorist incidents disrupted since 9/11

A senior FBI official says authorities have disrupted 35 terrorist-related incidents since the September 11, 2001, attacks. “These include both domestic and international terrorism matters and consist of a variety of preventive actions, including arrests, seizure of funds and disruption of terrorist recruiting and training efforts and even, in certain cases, the prevention of actual attacks,” said Larry Mefford, assistant director of counterterrorism for the FBI.
