This is the October 12, 2017 hearing on "Empty Threat or Serious Danger: Assessing North Korea's Risk to the Homeland," held before the Subcommittee on Oversight and Management Efficiency of the Committee on Homeland Security. From the opening statement of Scott Perry: "The purpose of this hearing is to examine the risks posed by North Korea to Homeland Security, and recommendations for the Department of Homeland Security to be better prepared to mitigate these risks. The Chair recognizes himself for an opening statement. It is no secret that Kim Jong-un and his maniacal regime in North Korea have ratcheted up tensions with the United States at an alarming rate. With the knowledge that North Korea conducted over 20 missile tests on over a dozen different occasions between February and September 2017, including tests of intercontinental ballistic missiles, many Americans and our allies around the globe remain on edge. However, Americans may rightly wonder about North Korea's ability to threaten the homeland directly." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Frank J. Cilluffo, Anthony Ruggiero, Patrick R. Terrell, Jeff Greene, and Peter Vincent Pry.
