He said that ISIS seems to be deviating from its past template of encouraging home-grown terrorism.
“It was a successful process for them, but they’ve moved beyond that now,” Davis said. “They’ve shown they can operationalize and actually run extra-territorial operations outside Syria and Iraq, and that is extremely troubling.”READ MORE: Longtime Watertown Grocery Store Russo’s Officially Closes
Despite the worrisome developments, Davis says Americans shouldn’t change their holiday plans, but should be vigilant.
“The bottom line is be aware, don’t let people frighten you, but be aware of your surroundings,” Davis said.
