McCaul: Terrorism Threat ‘Getting Worse Not Better’ (VIDEO)


Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX), chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, said Sunday that the terrorism threat to the United States has increased since 9/11.

“I think it’s getting worse, not better,” he said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “I personally see it spreading like a spiderweb, like a wildfire through Northern Africa and the Middle East. And as that threat increases overseas, so too does it increase to the homeland.”

Last week, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Rep. Mike Rogers (R-MI), chairs of the Senate and House intelligence committees respectively, agreed that the U.S. is still very vulnerable to attack.
