In comments on today’s “60 Minutes” program, FBI Director James Comey warned that the Khorasan group is “serious people, bent of destruction” who plan to attack the US “very, very soon.”
Comey insisted the US had to act as if the Khorasan strike was “coming tomorrow,” but conceded that they don’t know whether they plan to attack “tomorrow or three weeks or three months from now.”
Khorasan, as a distinct faction, doesn’t actually exist, and analysts say the term was almost certainly invented by the United States. The term appears to be a way for the US to strike al-Qaeda’s Jabhat al-Nusra, a close ally to its “moderate” rebels, without officially saying they’re attacking them.
The US claimed Khorasan to be a faction of about 50 fighters, and also believes it killed 30 of them when it began the air war in northern Syria. The slain were al-Nusra members, which fueled considerable anger amongst the rebels, who accused the US war of being primarily to the benefit of the Assad government.
The US assessments of Khorasan as an imminent threat, given they are actually referring to al-Qaeda, undercuts their claims of having made major gains against al-Qaeda worldwide.

If they know that is coming very, very soon, they can stope it before the last sooner coming, Or?
Shame on you liar. Shame on you terrorist. Now, they want to take over Iran by another FAKE terrorist organization. Shut up and get lost war criminal. You take this wish into your f*cking grave.
ISIS/ISIL = US = Israel = Britain.
Destroy the source of FAKE terrorist organization. Destroy the source of terrorism. The world is fed up with your false flag operation, terrorism, mass murders, wars and more.
Comey didn't get the memo that the Khorasan hoax was to be maintained only until the precedent of bombing western Syria was established.
You're sure they don't mean Coruscant?
"…undercuts their claims of having made major gains against al-Qaeda worldwide…"
We're not supposed to be connecting the dots, you know…just take what they say as whole truth and move along quietly in fear for your life and "freedoms"…
It is croissant not Khorasan!
The authorities who should be calming everyone down are really committed to making average Americans feel as though they are Israelis living forever surrounded by hostile enemies that wish to kill them. I do not believe at all that this is accidental. Were people not so stupid they would not be so easily scared or cowed.
I am too young to remember fully the fearmongering of the Cold War and whether it is as bad as this hysteria (other than being terrified by the TV movie "The Day After").
I can understand a healthy fear and respect of the USSR: huge army, navy, air force, nuclear weapons, etc. But I can't see how they can gin up the same fear or greater than that in regards to these stateless terrorists with none of the above equipment and capabilities, unless people are largely geographically challenged, irrational and childish idiots.
I, for one, have checked under my bed today and I swear there was a Gazan tunnel there evidently created by Koran-sham, who, as everyone knows, are the same as ISIS who are the same as Hamas thus the same as Hezbollah, thus the same as Iran!
We better attack Tehran now because it's imminent!

And, in other news, Comey revealed that the FIB has learned of a scary new plot to attack the “Homeland” using pink unicorns as suicide bombers. He urged everyone to “be very, very afraid”.
They are clearly planning another big false flag event. It probably will be just as obvious as the last one.
