Current Terrorist Threat to the United States, Hearing Before the Select Committee on Intelligence, U.S. Senate, One Hundred Fourteenth Congress, First Session, February 12, 2015 [open pdf - 1MB]
This is from the February 12, 2015 hearing on "Current Terrorist Threat to the United States" held before the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. From the opening testimony of Richard Burr: "This is to provide the Senate and the American people with an update on the current threat from terrorism. The Committee remains concerned about the expanding, evolving nature of this threat and the challenges facing the intelligence community and the evolving nature of the threat. This is the first of what I hope will be a number of open hearings that should give the intelligence community an opportunity to better inform the public of its current efforts and challenges. As Mr. Rasmussen and I have talked about: Here's what we do; here's sort of how we do it; as much as we can tell; but more importantly, here's why the American people should understand why this is important to them. It's about their defense. Given the nature of the material we're here discussing and the fact that this is an open hearing, I want to remind everyone to use extreme caution to protect intelligence sources and methods. While this is an excellent venue to engage Nick Rasmussen, I reserve the right to immediately suspend any questions or comments that may be sensitive in nature or whose response could disclose classified information." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Nicholas Rasmussen.
