The Department of Homeland Security has released the prepared testimony that Secretary Napolitano filed for this morning’s Senate hearing before the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs. The topic is “Eight years after 9/11: Confronting the Terrorist Threat to the Homeland.”
I don’t see much new or different. There is a brief riff on violent extremism that I haven’t noticed in her prior statements, but it clearly derives from John Brennan’s more extensive remarks on the topic. Anyway, for the record, you can see what she wanted the Committee to have by choosing the link above.
I still cannot find a transcript of the Secretary’s remarks on readiness and resilience given yesterday at the American Red Cross Headquarters. Can you point me to a copy? There are lots of places across the web promising to provide, but nothing is there yet.
What happened, did she waft off-script and speak so spontaneously that the transcriptors are still sweating over grammar corrections?
