This is the November 14, 2018 hearing on "U.S. Department of State Counterterrorism Bureau: Ensuring Resources Match Objectives," held before the House of Representatives Subcommittee on Terrorism, Nonproliferation, and Trade of the Committee on Foreign Affairs. From the opening statement of Ted Poe: "The threat of terrorism remains a deadly challenge for us and our allies around the globe. In the last 4 years we have seen the ability of terrorist groups--many of which we had thought were defeated--to evolve and attract thousands and recruit others for their violent cause. ISIS [Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant], al Qaeda, Iran, and all their affiliates and their proxies are very active and waiting in the shadows for an opportunity to strike again. Although we have made great progress against these terrorists on the battlefields of Iraq, Syria, Libya, and Afghanistan, the gains are fragile. Last week a report by the Pentagon warned that ISIS fighters have moved underground and are regrouping. Many of those terrorists that were in the Middle East have been run out of Middle East and fled to Africa and are regrouping and causing mischief there." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Nathan Alexander Sales.
