A growing threat of American-made Islamic terror has the FBI looking harder to catch radicalized U.S. citizens before they act, the National Journal reports in a Need-To-Know video segment.

“There have been double the number of plots unearthed in the last year than in any single year since 9/11, and the majority . . . have involved U.S. citizens,” says National Journal senior correspondent James Kitfield.

“And that’s something we hadn’t seen since 9/11.”

Kitfield says the FBI has so far maintained “pretty good radar” on potential homegrown threats by monitoring jihadist websites and using informants to keep tabs on terror groups' efforts to recruit Americans.

“But that doesn’t mean . . . someone couldn’t slip in under their radar,” he adds. “That’s what always concerns them most.”
