Under the carefree watch of President Obama, over the past 5 years the death toll from acts of terrorism around the world has jumped nearly 800 percent. The numbers from from a new report that highlights the alarming expansion of Islamist groups across the Middle East and Africa.
The nonprofit Investigative Project on Terrorism found that an average of nearly 30,000 people per year have been killed by terrorists since 2010, when terrorism’s death toll was 3,284. The authors of the study, which tabulated the numbers through the end of 2015, say that the exponential increase shows two troubling trends: More attacks are happening, and they tend to be deadlier than ever.
Alarmingly, IPT expects the wave of terror to continue to grow in 2016 and beyond. The study points out there has never been a U.S. or allied strategy to go after radical Islam.
