We can expect more attacks on U.S. soil like the Orlando nightclub shooting, according to Augusta University political scientist Dr. Craig Albert.
But Albert told reporters that residents shouldn’t become paranoid, or change their everyday routines, but rather keep a closer eye out for the warning signs that may give a heads up if someone around you is becoming radicalized.
As a leading scholar in American politics and foreign affairs, Albert’s research focuses on Islamic extremism and the rise of ISIS.
“ISIS heavily recruits online, looking through social media for disenfranchised Muslims living in the West already,” Albert said. “They look for alienated Muslims, people who feel oppressed or repressed by the government that they live in, and those who may already have criminal tendencies and anger issues, among other traits.”

Stations in Savannah and Columbus also aired the local Fox story, and the assistant professor in the Pamplin College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences is being booked on other media this week as well.
