Intel chief: ISIS capable of perpetrating Paris-style assault on American soil

James Clapper, the US director of national intelligence, said Wednesday in a TV interview that Islamic State has the ability to carry out a multi-casualty terrorist attack on US soil like it did in the French and Belgian capitals. "They do have that capacity," he said. "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." 
Over 130 people were killed in the November 2015 coordinated assault on the French capital, and more than 30 died in the bombings in the Belgian capital in March.
