ISIS is going ‘lo-fi’ and carrying out ‘lone wolf’ and supposedly poorly-thought-out attacks not because they can’t carry out a large-scale operation, but rather because they know they’re winning the War on Terror.

What are you going to do? Ban all cars? Ban kitchen knives and hammers?
ISIS knows security focuses on the ‘big’ events and scenarios, so every day things are overlooked. The main goal with these seemingly random attacks is that they want to force the U.S. to instate random searches, cameras on every corner, and metal detectors everywhere. That’s how they get what they want. That’s how they win.
