The Islamic State has been on the rise for years now, and since President Obama did not take action when needed against the group, they are becoming stronger than ever.

With attacks becoming more and more frequent in Europe and the Middle East, federal officials are concerned about the potential for an attack on American soil.

Researchers from Binghamton University in New York devised a system that may accurately predict terrorist attacks, the likes of which have attracted the attention of the CIA.

The Daily Caller reported:

Research scientists have devised a new framework that allows them to predict future terrorist actions with more than 90 percent accuracy.

Researchers at Binghamton University, State University of New York, created the Network Pattern Recognition (NEPAR) Framework. NEPAR is a comprehensive system which can predict a terrorist’s future activity by defining and analyzing useful patterns of attack. By recognizing terrorist behaviors, the framework can help detect and prevent terrorist behaviors.

The new system would help federal agencies comb through nearly all social media and other internet databases. It would flag the most concerning findings for federal investigation.

The idea for the system was created after one researcher noticed a pattern between the September 11th attacks in the United States and those more recently in Paris.

The Daily Caller reported:

While U.S. intelligence agencies are remarkably capable, they cannot always use social media and telecommunications to discover future terrorist attacks. The NEPAR Framework helps fill the gap.

“Terrorists are learning, but they don’t know they are learning. If we can’t monitor them through social media or other technologies, we need to understand the patterns. Our framework works to define which metrics are important,” Binghamton University Ph. D student Salih Tutun told PsyPost in an article published Thursday.

Tatun examined similarities between terrorist attacks, such as those in Paris in 2015 and Sept. 11, 2001, for example. He then created networks by determining if there is any relationship.

For several years, CIA directors have warned of the dangers of ISIS and the need to take action, which unfortunately fell on the deaf ears of former President Obama.

The New York Post reported:

CIA Director John Brennan warned Americans hours after Tuesday’s deadly Istanbul terror attack that he fears ISIS is planning similar large-scale offensives inside the United States.

“I am worried from the standpoint of an intelligence professional who looks at the capabilities of (ISIS) … and their determination to kill as many as people as possible and to carry out attacks abroad,” Brennan told Yahoo News, adding, “I’d be surprised if (ISIS) is not trying to carry out that kind of attack in the United States.”

The Daily Caller reported:

Former deputy director of the CIA Michael Morell warns that if the United States does not “degrade ISIS in Iraq and Syria and around the world, then we will face an attack like [Brussels] someday here.”

President Trump especially has pushed for preemptive action to be taken in the Middle East before the Islamic State chooses to attack first.

The Daily Caller reported:

The move fits with a broader push by the Trump administration to delegate tactical authorities to the Pentagon while focusing on broader strategic issues. The increasingly lax oversight is already being felt in the ground war against Islamic terrorists. “There is a sense among these commanders that they are able to do a bit more — and so they are,” a senior U.S military official told The Wall Street Journal in mid-April.

Do you think Americans should be concerned about a terrorist attack in the future?
