Official: Terror group planned to hide bombs on planes

This comes as the Pentagon says Monday night's airstrikes targeted not just ISIS but perhaps an even more immediate threat to the U.S. homeland called Khorasan.

According to a U.S. official, Khorasan, an al Qaeda-linked organization, was ready to blow up commercial flights.
