CIA chief warns Islamic State may be planning other attacks
By Jonathan S. Landay WASHINGTON (Reuters) - CIA Director John Brennan on Monday warned that last week's attacks in Paris were not a "one-off event," and that the Islamic State may already be preparing similar operations. "I would anticipate that this is not the only operation that ISIL has in the pipeline,” Brennan said in a speech to a policy institute, using an acronym for the Islamic State. “And security intelligence services right now in Europe and other places are working feverishly to see what else they can do in terms of uncovering it.” ** Brennan’s comments came as authorities in France, Belgium and other nations worked to track down suspects in Friday’s attacks on a concert hall, sports stadium, restaurants and bars in Paris that killed 129 people and were claimed by the Islamic State. ** The CIA chief said U.S. intelligence still had not confirmed that Islamic State was responsible, but added that the Paris attacks and the suspected bombing of a Russian passenger jet in Egypt on Oct. 31 “bear the hallmarks” of the radical Islamist group.
