The biggest threat to the U.S.

Wolf Blitzer asks Jane Harman, a nine-term Congresswoman and former ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, and Michael Chertoff, the former secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, about the future of homeland security and the biggest threats to the U.S.

“We have to remember we are all in it together,” said Chertoff. “When a gunman, whether it is Holmes of Hassan, starts to shoot, he doesn’t pick between Republicans and Democrats, he just kills Americans.”

Both Chertoff and Harman are in Aspen, Colorado for the Aspen Security Forum.

    DEIR HEZZOR, (SANA)_At the forefront of the Syrian armed forces offensive termed Confront, contain and extinguish, all terrorists are quantified based on internal security reports and special reconnaissance that works in conjunction with a community effort being engaged throughout the whole of the nation. As outlined by a defense ministry spokesman, "The citizens of Syria wholeheartedly support this round them up directive since many of them report being threatened with violence if they refuse to accede to the demands of seditionists. Our CCE policy is a viable and necessary approach to establish order by contending with any individual or group of individuals who are deluded – for whatever reason, into believing that a nation can be hijacked and seized by engaging in organized terrorism."

        Yeah, but it's the .4% that I worry about.

      Saeed: Not only have you butchered the English language and English grammar, you are delusional and sadistic.

      The introduction of a new attack helicopter, by anyone, has very little impact on the overall viability of a superpower's military prowess. Please educate yourself on Defense matters before making inane and ridiculous predictions.

        saeed loves to get under peoples skin. He's quite good at it. And for what it's worth, English doesn't appear to be his first language, hence the poor grammar. Hell, for all we know he could be some bored white kid getting his kicks in a basement in Michigan or Tennessee, or where ever.
