The latest intelligence indicates that a home-grown terrorist attack inside the United States is not likely anytime soon, according to a spokesman for the Department of Homeland Security.

“We are not immune to an attack from a home-grown terrorist, but the probabilities and sustainability of such an act are very low,” said DHS spokesman Michael Keegan.

That assessment came just hours after FBI Director Robert Mueller said his agency is “particularly concerned” that young men living in the United States could be recruited to attack the very country they call home. (Fox News)
