The federal agencies in charge of keeping America safe from a terrorist attack said there is no credible threat to America’s homeland on today’s 14th anniversary of Sept. 11.
The Washington Times reports that directors of the FBI, CIA and the National Security Agency said Thursday that they have no reason to believe a terrorist attack will occur today, despite increasing concerns over ISIS and al Qaeda.
The directors made the statement at an intelligence community conference in Washington, saying improvements in communications between the agencies have greatly reduced the threat of terrorism on the homeland.
“Compared to where we were 14 years ago, that intelligence work is light years ahead of where it was,” CIA Director John Brennan said. “And, in addition, strengthening the defenses of this country from 2001 to now — this is a much more difficult environment for terrorist groups to operate in.”
