This is the March 12, 2013 hearing on "National Security Threats" held before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. From the opening statement of Dianne Feinstein: "It is clear that the threats to the United States are many. They are diffused, and they are complex. We face a continuing threat at home from terrorist attack, most notably from al-Qa'ida in the Arabian Peninsula, which we call AQAP, bt also from home grown extremists, such as Nidal Hasan, the Fort Hood shooter; Najibullah Zazi, who attempted to blow up the New York subway; and Faisal Shahzad, the attempted Times Square bomber. [...] Sine last year's threat hearing, our staff has been keeping a tally of terrorism-related arrests in the United States. With the arrest of March 5th of Riaz Khan, for conspiring to provide material support to terrorists in connection with the suicide bombing of ISI headquarters in Pakistan, there have now been 105 terrorism-related arrests in the United States in the past four years." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Dianne Feinstein, Saxby Chambliss, James R. Clapper, Robert Mueller, John O. Brennan, Philip Goldberg, Matthew Olsen, and Michael T. Flynn.
