Sen. Feinstein, Rep. Rogers Say US is No Safer Today Than it Was in Previous Years

Both think terrorism is increasing


The United States is no safer today than it has been in recent years, the heads of the congressional intelligence committees said Sunday, pointing to the persistence of threats and the evolution of terrorist networks.

Asked during an interview on CNN whether the U.S. is safer "now than we were a year ago, two years ago," Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., who chairs the Senate Intelligence Committee, replied, "I don't think so."
