Fmr. CIA Chief: I’m Now More Worried About Terror In US ‘Than I’ve Been In A Long, Long Time’ (Washington Free Beacon)

Former Central Intelligence Agency director Mike Morrell said he has never been so worried about the terror threat in the United States.

“I’m more worried about a threat in the United States than I have been in a long, long time,” Morrell told CBS’ “This Morning” on Thursday.

Morrell, who served as acting director and deputy director of the CIA from 2010 to 2013, cited homegrown terrorists as the primary source of his concern. When Edward Snowden blew the whistle on the federal government increased surveillance, he made it much more difficult for law enforcement to track the behavior of potential homegrown radicals, Morrell said.
