According to the former US security chiefs, American citizens are now a bigger terror threat than even the ISIS and Al Qaeda. The statements have been made in reference to the build-up of a heavy military presence in Washington DC before the inauguration of Joe Biden as the 46th president of the United States. However, these claims and the militarization of US capitols have come under sharp criticisms by American patriots who stated that there are 5 times more troops now in Washington DC than in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Former New York City police commissioner Bill Bratton told CNBC that domestic terrorism has superseded the threat of international terrorism in the United States.
“For the last 20 years our biggest concern was international terrorism — ISIS, Al Qaeda,” Bratton said in a Friday evening interview. “Now it’s here and it’s us, and it’s the citizens of the United States, some of whom are rebelling against everything we thought we believed in for the last 300 to 400 years.”
Former Homeland Security Department counterterrorism official, Nate Snyder, also echoed Bratton’s sentiments.
“If you’re talking about the lethality of the threat, domestic terrorism — meaning violent white supremacists, neo-Nazis, sovereign citizens, militia movements — have been the most lethal threat in these past ten years compared to Al Qaeda and ISIS- inspired threats,” Snyder said.

FBI Director Christopher Wray told state officials to take any extremist threat seriously at a briefing on inauguration security at FEMA headquarters on Friday.

However, these claims and the militarization of US capitols have come under sharp criticisms by American patriots.
Rep. Seth Moulton claimed on the US House floor that there are more troops in Washington DC protecting the presidential inauguration than in Afghanistan.
“There are more troops right now in Washington DC than in Afghanistan. And they are here to defend us against the commander in chief, the president of the United States and his mob.”

The Army confirmed Friday that as many as 25,000 National Guard troops will be in D.C. to help with security for Biden’s inauguration. That’s roughly five times the number of troops that the U.S. currently has in Iraq and Afghanistan.
A popular sentiment was echoed by a DC worker in the video now shared widely asking why the US capitol was turned into a warzone.
“If you need all this to protect your inauguration from the people, then maybe the fucking people didn’t fucking elect you!”
Armed US troops have been authorized to use lethal force and are manning checkpoints to enter and leave downtown Washington, D.C. Green Zone and and Red Zone perimeters have been established. Several bridges into the city from neighboring Virginia are scheduled to be closed next week for the inaugural.
These eerier scenes of Washington DC this week have reminded some of the popular dystopian movie Hunger Games.
What was interesting about the claims made by the former security chiefs was that they roundly ignored any mention to either Antifa or Black Lives Matter who caused almost $2 billion in riot damages last year alone, the most expensive civil-disorder in American history.
What was not disclosed by the former american security chiefs was reported by GreatGameIndia last year, that Antifa was trained by ISIS terrorists themselves.
Antifa’s ties to the British intelligence is a closely guarded secret. From glorifying a British war criminal to bomb innocent civilians again to receiving training and weapons from ISIS, GreatGameIndia investigation uncovered the plot against America and that Antifa has long been regarded by American intelligence as a terrorist organization to be disrupted before they get a foothold on American soil.
