This is the May 23, 2018 hearing on the "ISIS Post-Caliphate: Threat Implications for America and the West," held before the House of Representatives Committee on Homeland Security. From the opening statement of Michael T. McCaul: "The terrorist attacks of 9/11 took the lives of almost 3,000 innocent people, and left our Nation in shock. In the aftermath, it was clear that serious changes need to be made to keep our home-land safe. While I believe we are safer today, terrorist threats persist. Terrorists and their followers are still killing innocent people and attempting to destroy our way of life. This has been made clear by the recent attacks against the West, London, Paris, Nice, Madrid, Manchester, Barcelona, Brussels, Berlin, and even New York have been targets of vehicle homicides, shootings, bombings, and stabbings. They are clearly following Sheik Adnani's call to kill by whatever means necessary, wherever they are. Although many jihadists are resorting to small-scale attacks, the thwarted plot to take down an airliner in Australia last summer was a reminder that our aviation sector is still their crown jewel of targets." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Ryan C. Crocker, John M. Keane, Daveed Gartenstein-Ross, and Joshua A. Geltzer.
