Today's tech-heavy vehicles often rely on alarm lights to warn drivers of possible trouble. Low tire? Dash lights up. Engine oil issue? Dash lights up. Temperature gone wacky? Dash lights up. Seat belts, door ajar, hatch open, the same.
And now, according to the FBI, if America as a nation was had warning lights regarding terrorism, its whole dash would be a glow of red and orange.
It's because he described the current "threat matrix" to Congress as really high.
According to a report from Fox News, FBI Director Christopher Wray told a hearing, "What I would say that is unique about the environment that we're in right now in my career is that while there may have been times over the years where individual threats could have been higher here or there than where they may be right now, I've never seen a time where all the threats or so many of the threats are all elevated, all at exactly the same time."

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., asked, "So, blinking red lights analogy about 9/11 — all the lights were blinking red before 9/11, apparently. Obviously, all of us missed it. Would you say there's multiple blinking red lights out there?"
Wray said the threat right now is at levels unprecedented before the Oct. 7 terror attack by Hamas on Israeli civilians, in an attack in which some 1,400 were slaughtered, sometimes with babies beheaded and other times with whole families burned alive.
Wray said, actually, he sees "blinking red lights everywhere."
A "veritable rogue's gallery of foreign terrorists" has demanded attacks against the U.S. since the Hamas atrocities, Wray confirmed.
"The threat level has gone to a whole 'nother level since Oct. 7," he said.
He had suggested in October there were threats.
"The actions of Hamas and its allies will serve as an inspiration the likes of which we haven't seen since ISIS launched its so-called caliphate several years ago," he said at the time.
The report noted there have been 74 attacks on U.S. troops in Iraq and Syria since Oct. 17, most considered to have been launched by militia groups triggered by the U.S. support for Israel.
And the report noted domestically, the FBI and Las Vegas police this week foiled an alleged "lone wolf" terror plot by a teenager who pledged support to ISIS.
IMPORTANT NOTE TO WND READERS: Shortly after Hamas terrorists fired over 5,000 rockets from Gaza into Israel on Oct. 7 and then proceeded to attack the Jewish state by land, sea and air – torturing, burning, beheading and murdering well over a thousand people, including women, children and infants, and wounding and abducting hundreds more – world reaction was, in its own way, almost equally shocking.
For after the biggest one-day mass slaughter of Jews since the Nazi Holocaust, what followed was an outpouring of celebratory demonstrations, unbridled Jew-hatred, deliriously gleeful support for Hamas and bitter condemnation of the nation of Israel. Not just in the Arab-Muslim world, but throughout the Western world as well, including all across America.
Why? What is behind the explosion of anti-Israel, anti-Jewish, pro-terror sentiment in the United States, where Israel has long been one of America's closest friends and allies? Why are hordes of young "woke" LGBT demonstrators marching in support of Hamas – when Hamas wouldn't think twice about binding and blindfolding them and throwing them off the roof of a tall building – as they routinely do in the Muslim world?
It turns out there's one area of agreement that is so powerful, deep-seated and all-consuming that the vast differences between the deranged left and the murderous jihadists melt away into Kumbaya harmony.
All of this and much more is completely exposed in November's issue of WND's critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled ISRAEL VS. GLOBAL JIHAD: How Jew-hatred, radical Islam and Leftism are pushing us toward World War III. Beyond a deeply insightful dive into why leftists are surging toward radical Islam – which hates and dreams of raping and butchering them – this Whistleblower issue includes fantastic articles by everyone from top Israeli analyst (and former Israel Defense Forces officer) Caroline Glick to Harvest Christian Fellowship's Pastor Greg Laurie on the current war in Israel and biblical prophecies regarding the End Times … which he says are now upon us.
