National Intelligence Director James Clapper has said the Islamic State militant group organization has the mechanism and resources to carry out terror attacks in the U.S. in a manner similar to those in Paris and Brussels, CNN reported Wednesday.

Clapper told CNN’s Peter Bergen that the group could use local elements to stage attacks in multiple locations in the country to inflict harm on citizens.

“That’s something we worry about a lot in the United States, that they could conjure up a raid like they did in Paris or Brussels,” Clapper said in the interview.

Clapper described the group’s tactic as “more general, strategic guidance” as opposed to directions for specific targets and IS lets “the local cell figure out how to achieve the objectives,” CNN reports.
