Top Federal Security Chiefs Update Congress on Homeland Threats ( CSPAN Video )
CSPAN ^ | Wednesday, September 19, 2012 | Senate Hearing

Washington, DC
Wednesday, September 19, 2012

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano, FBI Associate Deputy Director Kevin Perkins and National Counterterrorism Center Director Matthew Olsen update the Senate Homeland Security Committee on the current threats to the nation's homeland security and how agencies would respond to them, if need be.

The three witnesses are expected to testify about the progress made on various counterterrorism initiatives, including programs to stop terrorists like the 9/11 hijackers from acting in the United States. The hearing may also look at the organizations technological inadequacies, resource deficiencies and challenges to inter-agency coordination.

Last week, top officials at the DHS testified on the status of various homeland security programs before House committees. That hearing also focused on visa security after the Christmas Day bombing incident exposed gaps in Customs and Border Protection Agency's program for screening international passport visa applications.

The hearing will be led by Committee Chairman Joe Lieberman (I-CT) and Ranking Member Susan Collins (R-ME).

I did not find anything of significance that was left out of the various posts you sponsored and what I heard during the committee hearing.
The few responses made by the three witnesses regarding the so called "spontaneous happenings" in primarily Libya, Egypt and Yemen on 9/11, in effect, has been well covered by a number of Freepers with follow up reporting by some of the news media to the effect...
Susan Rice and Hillary Clinton where wrong. As we all know understand to be the case. Other then that. I did not pick up on anything new that has not been discussed over the past year in public hearings at the HR and Senate on national security issues. No response required. I'm must acknowledging I finished watching the hearings with nothing that could be added that many of us are not already aware of.
