CIA director John Brennan said he thought a coordinated series of terrorist attacks in Paris on Friday night, which has since been linked to the Islamic State, was probably “not a one-off event.”

“ISIS has an external agenda that they are determined to carry out,” Brennan said in remarks at the Center for Strategic and International Studies’ Global Security Forum on Monday.

“So I would anticipate this is not the only operation ISIL has in the pipeline.”

Brennan’s comments come after terrorists linked to the Islamic State group (also known as ISIS or ISIL) killed at least 129 people in a wave of attacks throughout Paris on Friday night and into Saturday morning.

The events, which Brennan described as “carefully and deliberately planned,” have had experts grappling with how French intelligence could have missed an attack that was most likely months in the making.

“How was this allowed to happen? What went wrong?” Josh Rogin, a reporter for Bloomberg View, asked Brennan on Monday.

Brennan responded by saying that, though many terrorist plots are uncovered and thwarted before they can be carried out, the attack in Paris was clearly a “sophisticated” effort that was “underway for quite some time.”
