The head of the Counterterrorism Bureau of the New York Police Department said yesterday a terrorist attack against the country is “inevitable” as the US prepares for the July Fourth festivities. “I think that it’s inevitable that there’ll be another attack in this country,” Chief James Waters told ABC News on Saturday, two days before the Independence Day. “We are well-prepared to respond to that.” Some 100 specially trained officers are ready 24/7 for deployment with high-powered weapons, radiation detectors and bomb-sniffing dogs.
Calling the anti-terror operation “ring of steel,” the officer added that it includes more than 9,000 surveillance cameras with feeds from the Brooklyn Bridge and the Times Square to inside the city’s subways, all leading to a secret headquarters in lower Manhattan. But how many operators would be needed to monitor 9,000 cameras?, otherwise the cameras can only be used for intelligence gathering AFTER a terrorist action.

“We look at the global threat environment,” said Meghann Teubner, the director of counterterrorism intelligence analysis in the NYPD’s Counterterrorism Bureau. “What’s happening in the world? Are there any new trends that we need to be concerned with? Any new tactics that terrorist groups may be using that have any implication for us here in New York City?” The police department is also looking into tactics by used by Takfiri militants in attacks from the Charlie Hebdo one in Paris to the shootings in San Bernardino, California and Orlando, Florida.

We have already had our fills of terrorist attacks so far this year.

Between San Bernadino, and Orlando. We already know it's inevitable. So we don't need captians obvious MOIS telling us.

Since the article comes from Presstv which is Iranian propaganda.

It's the 4th of July weekend.

Eat,drink, and be merry.

Then drink some more.

Have SAFE and Happy July 4th weekend people.

Stay safe.

Terrorists won't attack anywhere where there are armed citizens.

They are cowards.

I land nowhere...I travel everywhere. But I choose to be of help to my fellow human beings without pay, thanks, or any expectations.

I volunteer, I train, I respond, I grow. You?

There's a difference between "inevitable" and "imminent". Simple yet effective play on words to keep the fear going.

Yawn.

Terrorists attack police, military units and other heavily guarded places all the time. If your a suicide bomber it is not like your afraid of dying.

As for the OP of course a terrorist attack is inevitable. Be it the kind we have had as of late where somebody with issues goes on a rampage and tries to dress it up as a part of a cause or a real outside planned attack. Of course you still have much much better chance at getting killed in a good old fashioned American mass shooting. We do not even need terror groups we have our own problems.
