Foiled Virginia Attack Brings Total of U.S. Terror Plots to 97 Since 9/11


Lionel Williams, 27, of Suffolk, Virginia, just pleaded guilty in federal court to plotting with ISIS to launch terror attacks in Syria, Iraq and America.

In court, prosecutors said Williams, a year ago, was trying to conduct a lone-wolf attack in the United States, on behalf of ISIS. Luckily, FBI agents were able to uncover the plot and put a halt to the attack.

But it’s not the only terror plot FBI agents have thwarted in recent times.

Lionel Williams is charged in court with trying to aid ISIS — and commit acts of terror in America.

In fact, since the devastating terror attacks that hit America’s soil in September 11, 2001, the feds have uncovered nearly 100 more Islamic-tied terror plots against U.S. spots.

The Daily Signal, which keeps a running count, puts the number of thwarted attacks at 97.

Look at this, from The Daily Signal:

[The Williams] case will be discussed as part of a seminar, “16 Years After 9/11: The Current Status of Islamist Terrorism,” on Sept. 8 at The Heritage Foundation.

Williams’ plot brought the total number of Islamist terrorism plots and attacks against the U.S. homeland since 9/11 to 97.

In March 2016, a former associate of Williams tipped off the FBI that Williams was posting ISIS materials on his Facebook page and that he had purchased an AK-47-style rifle the day after the deadly December 2015 terrorist attack in San Bernardino, California.

Local police reported that Williams had been practicing with the rifle near his home.

An FBI agent then contacted Williams through Facebook, pretending to be a radical Islamist. Williams then met with an undercover agent, stating that he supported attacks on “hard targets,” likely referring to police or military targets.

Williams stated that the only reason he hadn’t already carried out an attack was because he was caring for his grandmother.

Williams said he wanted to provide funding to ISIS in the meantime. Through multiple undercover agents, he sent $250 to an individual he was led to believe was working for the Islamic State. He thought the money purchased a rocket-propelled grenade launcher and ammunition.

While he was funding ISIS, Williams continued to discuss a “martyrdom operation,” or attacks at home that would result in his death. He believed that unless he had something to live for, his attack might not be pure, and his death would be considered a suicide rather than martyrdom.

To solve that problem, he arranged a marriage to a woman outside the U.S., which led him to conclude that after he married her, “the next time I see her will be in [heaven].” He went on to say he was planning to send the rest of his money to ISIS so that he would die without a dollar to his name.

With Williams clearly moving toward an attack and already in possession of firearms, the FBI arrested him in December 2016.

On Aug. 16, he pleaded guilty to charges of attempting to provide material support to ISIS and will be sentenced on Dec. 20. He faces up to 20 years in prison.

As we approach the anniversary of 9/11, the U.S. must remain vigilant to the threat of Islamist terrorism.

With the decline of ISIS in Syria and Iraq, the number of terrorist plots in the U.S. have fallen substantially. In 2015, the U.S. faced 17 Islamist plots and attacks; in 2016, 13. So far in 2017, the U.S. has faced only three.

It should go without saying that what happens outside America’s borders does not necessarily stay there. The violent ideology of Islamist terrorist groups drives many to fight for their cause, especially when these groups appear to be having success or when they are allowed to plot and plan from the safety of a chaotic region.

    Making grandma proud. Good job dindu.

    • Liatris Spicata

      While I can’t say about this specific case, in all too many case, you are spot on: granny would consider it an honor to her family.

  • Fred

    Put the savage in ADX FLORENCE- the Alcatraz of the Rockies. Eventually the savage will do us all a favor and hang himself.

    One down, millions more to go.

    Williams stated that the only reason he hadn’t already carried out an attack was because he was caring for his grandmother.

    Kuffars shouldn’t have that right.

    Throw him in jail, or better yet into syria or somalia, He can die seeing what the real islam is all about, it is not just collecting American welfare cheques.

  • Poppey

    Pffftt, only 97 plots in sixteen years !!!!!!!! Our boys bust more than that in twelve months, what are you guys complaining about ?

  • AR154U☑ᵀʳᵘᵐᵖ DEPLORABLE 2020

    Some hardcore ‘activist’ would prefer ZERO plots busted and stopped !!!

  • Alleged-Comment

    OHHHH…. another Negro! We had one terrorize US for 8 years. He ruled by EO and overrode Congogess, your Constitution and your laws.

    No one DARE oppose him because all he had to say was he was a NEGRO, a SODOMITE and married to a transgender named Michael (ghetto for Michelle) which gave him special privileges usually reserved for the mentally handicapped.

    So no one DARE oppose the negro. His unofficial title was Nerogro.

    • IcIcIsee

      Well said Alleged-Comment. Spot on. He was dishonest from the start. I can only imagine how many times Obama and Michael smiled at people and then sniggered to themselves behind their backs while toasting each other on champagne or scotch hell even cocaine paid for with tax dollars and given to them for free by dirty corrupt officials after successful seizures. Australians that i speak to are shocked to learn Michelle is a tranny because mainstream media that the sheeple of our countries follow did not cover the story or report the facts. Mind you im sure if Melania Trump was one they’d be onto it faster than a fly to you know what.

  • Michael Garfinkel

    Twenty years in prison is the maximum sentence, so if he hasn’t a previous criminal conviction he is likely to be sentenced to ten, which can be reduced to eight years for good behavior.

    Since he has already served two since his arrest, it’s quite likely he’ll be out again in six.

    Why should anyone believe this country is taking the terrorism threat seriously – particularly when Obama virtually emptied GITMO, and not a single person military or prison official resigned in protest.

    I can’t jihad right now. My grandmother is sick.
