DHS secretary: ‘Threat landscape has evolved considerably’ since 9/11

For all of you who criticize me for calling 1/6 a terrorist attack. 
 

 

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas on Sunday said the threats facing the U.S. in the 21 years since the Sept. 11 attacks have shifted from worries about foreign terrorists to growing concerns about domestic extremism.

“The threat landscape has evolved considerably over the last 20 years,” Mayorkas said during an appearance on MSNBC’s “The Sunday Show with Jonathan Capehart.”

“Back when 9/11 occurred, in those years we were very focused on the foreign terrorist, the individual who sought to do a severe harm to enter the United States and and do us harm,” Mayorkas continued, speaking at the site of the World 

 
 

But now, Mayorkas said officials are becoming “more and more” concerned about U.S. residents radicalized by foreign terrorist ideologies.

“We are seeing an emerging threat, of course, over the last several years of the domestic violent extremist,” Mayorkas said. “The individual here in the United States radicalized to violence by a foreign terrorist ideology, but also an ideology of hate, anti-government sentiment, false narratives propagated on online platforms, even personal grievances.”

Mayorkas has previously called domestic extremism the country’s greatest terror-related threat, comments that came less than three months after the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack.

Mayorkas is one of many Democrats who have sounded alarm bells about domestic extremist threats.

 
 

Vice President Harris in an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” which also aired on Sunday, called domestic terrorism “very dangerous,” saying it makes the country “weaker.”

Asked if domestic threats are equal or greater than those the U.S. faced after 9/11 from foreign terrorists, Harris said “we don’t compare the two in the oath” to protect the country.

Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.), the Senate Intelligence Committee chairman, said on Sunday that he worries about domestic threats while the threat of terror in his view had “diminished.”

“The stunning thing to me is here we are 20 years later, and the attack on the symbol of our democracy was not coming from terrorists, but it came from literally insurgents attacking the Capitol on Jan. 6,” he said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

The House in May passed a bill nearly along party lines that would create domestic terrorism offices throughout the federal government. Rep. Adam Kinzinger (Ill.) was the sole House Republican to vote in favor of the legislation, while others in his conference argued the bill would unfairly target Americans.

Lol. Tonya is so stupid he will believe that a democrat is an objective unbiased source while  talking to NBC. 

The only internal terrorist is the current admin that bows to a bunch of leftist commies. 

Law and order right! Oh yeah that only applies to minorities in the MAGA’s eyes.

2 billion in damages caused by Biden supporters. Increased crime under Biden admin  especially in democrat controlled cities. Facts you're too stupid to realize. 

Assassination/coupe/terrorist attack on captital. Failing economy with high unemployment  Biden had to fix. A wall that was never completed. Defunded the military to try and pay for it. Per the article a major terror threat by Trump and his followers.

Am I a terror supporter if I believe 9/11 was an "inside job"?

No, you are rightly skeptical.  I don't buy into your conspiracy theory because I know enough people who work in government to believe routine stupidity and incompetence killed 3000 people.  However, there is a question of how much was known, when was it known, and were people in just a few select cases told to do nothing.  Knowing what was going to happen and letting it happen is, IMVHO, very convenient especially if your pay off is your unending cash cow that was the war of error, i  mean war on terror.  It sort of parallels the Ukraine proxy war.  Don't start the war, but provoke and threaten Russia into invading its neighbors, arm its neighbors just enough so nobody can win and keep the blood and money flowing for as long as possible

No you are not. But your conspiracy theory is wrong and has been disproven over and over.

My "conspiracy theory" has been disproven over and over by who?

You like a Trump!

I have no idea… Lose Change is a bit outdated. Do I believe the government screwed up on 9/11 intelligence, heck yeah. Outside of that it was a horrible event in American history committed by terrorists.

I've never watched Loose Change. No point.

It's simple physics.

Doesn't require magical thinking like the official theory.

What's to buy when we can see it happening with our own eyes?

Let me ask you a serious question

What would it say about your country if elements of the power structure in America planned and executed 9/11?

I would say like you and others have said the government is too incompetent to pull it off. Secondly no one can keep their mouths shut in the government so it would have come out by now.
