In case you missed it, last week the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs held a hearing on “Threats to the Homeland.” You can find the member statements and written testimonies, as well as a higher quality video, on the Committee’s website: http://www.hsgac.senate.gov/hearings/threats-to-the-homeland
The witnesses included:
The Honorable Rand BeersActing SecretaryU.S. Department of Homeland Security
The Honorable James B. Comey, Jr.Director, Federal Bureau of InvestigationU.S. Department of Justice
The Honorable Matthew G. OlsenDirector, National Counterterrorism CenterOffice of the Director of National Intelligence
I did not note anything particularly insightful or new in the testimony or answers to Senators’ questions. Lots of cyber, lots of Al Qaeda, lots of “Homegrown Violent Extremists” (HVEs), a little bit on other terrorist threats and active shooters.
However, if I missed something interesting please note it in the comments.
