The country’s Homeland Security chief is warning authorities to be vigilant, knowing that one of the hardest types of terror attack to pick off – the lone-wolf attack – could be inspired by the upcoming anniversary of the death of Usama bin Laden.

FOX Chief Intelligence Correspondent Catherine Herridge reports in our ongoing series on national security:

While there is no specific or credible intelligence pointing to an attack, the law enforcement bulletin says homegrown terrorists – the so-called lone wolf – may see next week’s anniversary as the ideal time to retaliate for bin Laden’s death. ┬áThe Homeland Security Secretary, Janet Napolitano, testified on Capitol Hill Wednesday.

(Napolitano) “When I say terrorism continues to evolve, that’s one of the evolutions that we’re seeing. ┬áRadicalization, radicalization to the point of terrorist violence.”

According to the Congressional Research Service, there have been more homegrown cases in the last two-and-a-half years than in the first eight years after 9/11.
