The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria’s effort to inspire troubled Americans to violence has become more of a terror threat to the U.S. than an external attack by al Qaeda, the FBI director said Wednesday.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says he’s received threats mailed to his home that he calls “ugly, vile, vulgar.”
State and local law enforcement need to do a better job of tracking and reporting hate crimes so that we can “fully understand what is happening in our communities, and how to stop it,” FBI Director James Comey said Monday.
President Barack Obama says he picked James Comey to lead the FBI after interviewing many other candidates for the job.
The Senate Judiciary Committee has unanimously approved the nomination of James Comey to be director of the FBI, clearing the way for a full Senate vote.
