    House Intel Committee Chair: US Is At ‘The Highest Threat Level We Have Ever Faced In This Country’

    WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee warns that America is dealing with “the highest threat level we have ever faced in this country.” Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., told CBS’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday that the threat is coming from the radicalization of young people and foreign fighters heading to Iraq and Syria to join terror groups.

    “They’re very good at communicating through separate avenues where it’s very difficult to track,” Nunes said. “That’s why when you get a young person who is willing to get into these chat rooms, go on the Internet and get radicalized, it’s something we are not only unprepared [for], we are also not used to it in this country.”

    This is the fruit of nearly 7 years of "smart" diplomacy.

    A weak president has allowed terror to flourish and in fact ceded a nation to the most violent terrorists in modern history. In Afghanistan he is doing the same, as AQ surrounds cities and Iran pours in more, licking their chops for the last Americans to leave-Obama has let them know its theirs.

    China and Russia are emboldened. And "JV" isis continues to grow, striking already in the US, and now subjecting Americans to the greatest threat level we have ever faced from terrorists.

    This is what hope and change looks like folks.

    Hmm lots of talk about union jack flags on the forum today, but none about this. I wonder why that is.

    Most of the radical ISIS extremists in the US are home grown Americans. Losers in life, looking to identify with something to give them a legacy. ISIS is targeting the US because we have plenty of kooks and easy access to weapons. Why should we care if they are leaving to go over there...just don't let them come back and they can enjoy their new homes and leadership. Let them go..if they want to live among savages, at least they are not here. We need to focus on what is happening here...and this is just a warning to make people diligent in their awareness. It will take the Muslim community to step up and help the US fight terrorism...diligence is needed from everyone. Our response to the ME is about the only thing I agree with as far as the POTUS. Those countries are a waste of time and will destroy themselves eventually. The reason that they have not already..is the world keeps throwing them a lifeline.

    They aren't content "over there", they are at war with the US, and our President is bombing them. He isn't even President enough to not fight them-just a lukewarm symbolic attack that assures that ISIS not only remains but continues to fight. Today I read they are minting their own coins and have released more very highly produced execution films. They are attacking us because they are our enemy. If "what happens over there stays over there" was the nature of terrorism it would perhaps be a different situation, its not.

    Meh, confederate flag. Something that has exactly nothing to do with our terror threat level.

    Maybe you can explain this to me. When did the left decide to stop caring about the war on terror?

    Perhaps around the time they lost the peace in Iraq?

    Pearl harbor, awful as it was-was an attack on a military installation (yes, civilians were killed), by a waring nation.

    On a tangential note, despite your beliefs do you understand why the left is seen as soft on terror?

    You're missing the point, which is that when US history contains events such as Pearl Harbor, half of the country choosing to secede and the civil war that resulted from it, and the revolutionary war which would resulted in the creation of our country, it is clearly incorrect to claim that we are at our highest threat level in history.
    Social democrat is no longer an accurate description of my views.
