This is the December 7, 2021 hearing on "Examining the Worldwide Threat of Al Qaeda, ISIS [Islamic State of Iraq and Syria], and Other Foreign Terrorist Organizations," held before the U.S. House Subcommittee on National Security of the Committee on Oversight and Reform. From the opening statement of Stephen F. Lynch: "As terrorist threats to the United States continue to evolve, so too must our counterterrorism approach. Terrorist organizations around the world have started to exploit local conflicts and insurgencies to advance their own violent and twisted ideological objectives. Denying safe haven to these organizations and delegitimatizing their ideology requires a whole-of-government approach that lessens our reliance on massive, long-term military presence and instead looks to over-the-horizon partnerships and quick-strike capabilities. [...] I look forward to hearing from our witnesses today about their assessment of the terrorist threats facing the United States." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Milancy D. Harris and Christopher A. Landberg.
