The FBI knew of the potential for ISIS sympathizers in Georgia to become radicalized long before Paris massacre.
Members of the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force gathered Monday to discuss top secret information from Georgia and abroad.
The FBI’s Special Agent in Charge says long before Friday’s attack in Paris, the FBI knew of the potential for ISIS sympathizers in Georgia to become radicalized and had investigations underway.
But now authorities are taking extra precautions.
“We need to make sure that the joint terrorism task force members have eyes on all the threat reporting to make sure that they’re on top of it,” said FBI Agent in Charge Britt Johnson
“Being able to preserve life and to ensure the calmness and the safety of the citizens here in the state of Georgia is paramount,” said Agent in Charge Jeff Roesler with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
