SEAN HANNITY (HOST): We have the most sophisticated weaponry of intelligence available to mankind. Is it possible that we could find every one of these lone wolves, before people die like today?

SEBASTIAN GORKA: We can do much better, we absolutely can, especially under the presidency of Donald J. Trump. Number one, we have to jettison this idea of a "lone wolf." "Lone wolf" was invented as a phrase, was made popular by the Obama administration to make Americans disconnect the dots. There has not been significant a jihadi attack since September 11th in the United States, where one person acted completely isolated from everybody else.

[...]

We should jettison the idea that there's an individual in their basement, who one day is an upstanding American citizen, and then a few weeks later, just because they went to a few websites, they become a jihadi. Never happened, the closest we got was that pathetic case of "Jihadi Jane" and that wasn't a serious case.
