Obama: Increase in domestic terrorism fueled by Internet
May 23, 2013
During his foreign policy speech Thursday afternoon, President Obama warned that domestic terrorism would increase in the modern age of the Internet.
“[T]his threat is not new,” Obama said. “But technology and the Internet increase its frequency and lethality.”
Obama warned Americans that materials on the Internet could influence people to commit terrorist acts.
“Today, a person can consume hateful propaganda, commit themselves to a violent agenda and learn how to kill without leaving their home,” he said.
