Congressional Leaders Agree: US Less Safe Today Than When Obama Took Office (Video)
Do you remember this?
Barack Obama told Americans Al-Qaeda was on the path to defeat in 2012.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-California, and Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Michigan, the leaders of the House and Senate Intelligence committees, said Sunday the US has lost ground in the ongoing battle against global terrorism.
The leaders of the House and Senate Intelligence committees said Sunday that terrorists have gained ground in the past two years and that the United States is not any safer than it was at the outset of 2011.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-California, and Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Michigan, agreed that despite the death of Osama bin Laden and drone strikes aimed at decimating al Qaeda’s leadership, President Barack Obama’s administration has lost ground in the ongoing battle with global terrorism.
“Are we safer now than we were a year ago, two years ago?” host Candy Crowley asked Feinstein on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
“I don’t think so,” the Senate Intelligence Committee chairwoman replied.
“I absolutely agree that we’re not safer today,” Rogers added.
Congressional leaders agree – the US is not safer today.
