Jeh Johnson: ‘We Are Safer When It Comes to the 9/11-Style Attack’

‘Our intelligence community, our law enforcement community are pretty good now at connecting those types of dots’

JOHNSON: "Good question. We are safer when it comes to the 9/11-style attack. Our government has become pretty good at detecting overseas’ plots against the homeland. Our intelligence community, our law enforcement community are pretty good now at connecting those types of dots. But we have got this new environment and new threat which we just talked about, which makes it harder. And we’re seeing now attacks in Orlando and San Bernardino that we’ve got to protect against, which is why I continue to talk about public vigilance, public awareness, the need to build bridges to communities that we know ISIL and A.Q. are trying to recruit from within."
