"FBI investigating 850 cases of potential domestic terrorism: The FBI 
has nearly 850 domestic terrorism investigations underway, and the 
number of cases targeting white supremacists, white nationalists, and 
other racially-motivated extremists has jumped in the past six 
months, federal law enforcement officials told the House Committee on 
Homeland Security on Wednesday. The head of the FBI's 
counterterrorism division, Assistant Director Michael McGarrity, said 
that about 40 percent of those investigations target subjects who 
adhere to racist ideologies, and "a significant majority" of them are 
white nationalists or white supremacists. The vast majority of the 
other cases involve subjects who promote anti-government or 
anti-authority sentiments, McGarrity testified."
