FBI director: Islamic State has 'revolutionized' terrorism

NEW YORK - Islamic State has "revolutionized" terrorism by seeking to inspire small-scale individual attacks around the world through social media, encrypted communications and slickly produced propaganda, FBI Director James Comey said on Wednesday.
"Your parents' al-Qaida was a very different model than the threat we face today," Comey said at a counterterrorism conference in New York City.
He said the Federal Bureau of Investigation currently has "hundreds" of investigations in all 50 states involving potential Islamic State-inspired plots.
