The Latest Opinion: White House issues list of 78 attacks that media was ignoring

The White House has released a list of 78 attacks it describes as “executed or inspired by” the Islamic State group.

The White House says most did not get sufficient attention.

The list includes incidents like a truck massacre in Nice that killed dozens and received widespread attention, as well as less high-profile incidents in which nobody was killed.

The AP could not verify that each of the incidents had connections to the Islamic State group.

President Donald Trump claimed during a speech earlier Monday that the media was deliberately ignoring attacks.

Trump said that, “in many cases, the very, very dishonest press doesn’t want to report it,” adding, “They have their reasons.”

Turkey says nationwide terror raid nets hundreds of ISIS suspects.

Turkey announced that a massive anti-ISIS police operation carried out early Sunday morning led to the arrest of more than 440 people with alleged links to the terrorist organization. The counter-terrorism operation was carried out across 18 provinces, including Istanbul, the capital Ankara, and Gaziantep, a city near the Syrian border that is a popular point of departure for individuals crossing over into Syria, Turkey’s state-run Anadolu Agency reported. Most of the detained suspects were foreign nationals.

Over the past year-and-a-half, Turkey has seen a sharp spike in ISIS-inspired and organized attacks in the country that have left hundreds dead.
