Homeland Security chief warns of threat from al-Qaeda sympathizers in U.S.

“Al-Qaeda followers are inside the United States and would like to attack targets here and in other countries, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Wednesday night….

“Home-based terrorism is here. And like violent extremism abroad, it will be part of the threat picture that we must now confront,” Napolitano said. “Individuals sympathetic to al-Qaeda and its affiliates, as well as those inspired by the group’s ideology, are present in the U.S., and would like to attack the homeland or plot overseas attacks.”
