Terror Expert: Paris Attack Was A ‘Test,’ America Beware

A former top FBI official is warning that the Paris attack may only be the beginning of the bloodshed the Western world will suffer at the hands of ISIS. Worse yet, he believes future attacks will be even more vicious.

In an interview with The Daily Caller, former FBI counterterrorism expert Eric O’Neill said he believes the Paris attacks indicate ISIS is testing a model of “small randomized attacks” that the group plans to later unleash on cities all over the world.

“I think this was a test to see how well this could work in a city. Can we coordinate it? Can we effectively carry it out,” O’Neill said. “My sense is they are benchmarking themselves. They are going to see if this could be deployed somewhere else because if this was a test, then they passed.”

Other counterterror experts have said it’s no surprise that the terrorists picked “softer” targets where people gather for drinks and entertainment in Paris because they’re harder to guard against attack and frequented by people at all levels of society.

“So you attack one place. They run. They attack another place. They pop up somewhere else. And they keep going until authorities finally catch up with them,” O’Neill said of how the Paris attackers thwarted police for so long.
