CIA Chief: Terrorism Morphing Into Different Threats
“Terrorism is morphing into different types of threats, including cyberattacks that can impact nations across the globe, the director of central intelligence said in New York last week.
John Brennan told the Council on Foreign Relations that terror attacks in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Central Asia show the terror threat is changing. The CIA working with foreign partners is key to defeating the terror threat, he added.
‘These attacks underscore a disturbing trend that we have been monitoring for some time — the emergence of a terrorist threat that is increasingly decentralized, difficult to track and even more difficult to thwart,’ Brennan said.”
