The head of the Central Intelligence Agency, John Brennan, said Wednesday he would be surprised if Daesh (ISIS) was not plotting attacks within the United States and against American targets abroad.Brennan said Daesh typically does not claim responsibility for attacks in Turkey, so it can send a message to the Turkish government without alienating potential future recruits in the country.Earlier this month, Brennan told Congress that the U.S. battle against Daesh has not yet curbed the group's global reach and that they are expected to plot more attacks on the West and incite violence by lone wolves. Brennan has said that Russian military forces have bolstered Syrian President Bashar Assad and are carrying out attacks against the U.S.-backed forces trying to unseat him.
