‘Huge Malevolence Out There’: Feinstein Says We’re Not Safer from Terrorism Today -- By Bridget Johnson, PJ Media

Watch this videoSenate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said this morning that we’re not safer from terrorism today than we were just one or two years ago.

“I think terror is up worldwide, the statistics indicate that, the fatalities are way up. The numbers are way up,” she said this morning on CNN. “There are new bombs, very big bombs, trucks being reinforced for those bombs. There are bombs that go through magnatometers. The bomb maker is still alive. There are more groups that ever and there’s huge malevolence out there.”

Her House counterpart, Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers (R-Mich.), said he “absolutely” agreed “that we’re not safer today for the same very reasons.”

“So the pressure on our intelligence services to get it right to prevent an attack are enormous. And it’s getting more difficult because we see the al-Qaeda as we knew it before is metastasizing to something different, more affiliates than we’ve ever had before, meaning more groups that operated independently of al-Qaeda have now joined al-Qaeda around the world, all of them have at least some aspiration to commit an act of violence in the United States or against western targets all around the world,” Rogers said.

“They’ve now switched to this notion that maybe smaller events are okay. So if you have more smaller events than bigger events, they think that might still lead to their objectives and their goals,” he added. “That makes it exponentially harder for our intelligence services to stop an event like that.”
