Be Afraid? Be Very Afraid?

Just in time for the long holiday weekend, one U.S. official is apparently trying to scare the pants off everyone. The comments from Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly on Friday come just days after ISIS claimed responsibility for an attack on an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England - the bombing killed 22 and injured more than 100. 

Kelly said the terror threat is worse than most people realize, adding that some people would "never leave the house" if they knew the truth. 

“I was telling [Fox host] Steve [Doocy] on the way in here, if he knew what I knew about terrorism, he’d never leave the house in the morning,” Kelly said on “Fox & Friends.”

He noted there were four major terror attacks in the last week — in England, Egypt, the Philippines and Indonesia — "by generally the same groups."

“It’s everywhere. It’s constant. It’s nonstop. The good news for us in America is we have amazing people protecting us every day. But it can happen here almost anytime.”
