America is losing the fight against terrorism on both the home and international fronts, Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) said Wednesday at The Heritage Foundation.
ISIS and al Qaeda have created an enormous internet platform that generates momentum behind their extremist views, he said. Every day, there are more than 200,000 pro-ISIS messages posted on Twitter alone. They are spreading their messages at broadband speed, while America is fighting them at bureaucratic speed.
“If you try to bring terror to our shores, we will bring justice to yours,” McCaul, the chairman of The House Committee on Homeland Security, told a packed audience at Heritage.
Do you think the government should be doing more to protect Americans from extremists?
