Homeland Security chairman: Threat of terrorism spreading like 'wildfire' overseas

CNN's Dana Davidsen

The chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee said the threat of terrorism overseas is "getting worse, not better."

"I personally see it spreading like a spiderweb, like a wildfire, through Northern Africa and the Middle East," Rep. Mike McCaul, R-Texas, told CNN's Candy Crowley on "State of the Union."

    Who cares about terrorism- enough already. We're fine! We need to focus on our progressive movement here in the US and show them that we care and then they'll stop. We need to be the model for them to see. LGBT pride, the legalization of marijuana and government healthcare, plus the right to choose are examples for all mankind. We're on the right track! Keep the momentum and all of this terrorism stuff will go away.

    Does the DHS head realize a spiderweb and wildfire spread in entirely different ways? Or do they not teach that at Fearmonger College?

    Shouldn't he say: "Threat of Islam spreading like 'wildfire' overseas"?

      I think he meant to say...

      "On Wildfire we're gonna ride
      Gonna leave sodbustin' behind
      Get these hard times right on out of our minds
      Riding Wildfire..."
