Homeland Security and Justice Department officials testified on the use of social media by ISIS* to recruit fighters, spread propaganda, and plot attacks. FBI Counterterrorism Assistant Director Michael Steinbach warned about the growing use of encrypted communication by terror groups, saying technology had complicated efforts to monitor terror suspects and extremists. The hearing also focused on the use of social media by suspects in the May 3, 2015, shooting in Garland, Texas, and the previous day killing of a terrorist suspect in Boston who attacked FBI agents attempting to question him.

* The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), also known as the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), is a militant group that has called itself the Islamic State. close
