2. ISIL represents a regional threat to states such as Lebanon.
3. ISIL represents a threat to American interests in Europe through deployed operatives.
4. ISIL has no operational presence in the U.S., but remains a potential long term threat, especially foreign fighters.
5. Olsen estimates approximately 100 Americans have gone to Syria, and some of them have returned to the U.S.
