This is the June 10, 2014 hearing, "The State Department's Counterterrorism Bureau: Budget, Programs, and Evaluation" held before the Subcommittee on Terrorism, Nonproliferation, and Trade of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs. The testimony in this hearing focuses on U.S. counterterrorism efforts, the evolution of diverse, dispersed terrorist networks, and the modern al-Qaeda threat. From the opening statement of Ted Poe: "Terrorism remains one of the most dangerous threats to the U.S. national security and our interests worldwide. A recent study by the RAND Corporation found that from 2010 to 2013, the number of jihadist groups worldwide grew 58 percent. [...] Al-Qaeda remains a central part of this fight. Despite the death of Osama bin Laden, the group operates in more territory and has more safe havens than it did in just 5 or 10 years ago. [...] Al-Qaeda in Afghanistan and Pakistan remains determined to make a comeback despite the erosion of the so-called al-Qaeda core." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of Tina Kaidanow and Adam Kinzinger.
