Even in Florida, terrorism is the FBI’s top concern.
So said south Florida’s new special agent in charge, George Piro, 46.
“Our biggest threat domestically is homegrown, violent extremists, and it’s no different here in South Florida,” Piro said, reports the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
Following in the footsteps of his predecessors, Piro said terrorism remains the FBI’s No. 1 priority.
Piro is known for “the guy that interrogated Saddam.” But he hopes to become known for more than that.
“Being an FBI agent is actually more rewarding, or has more meaning for me, than just interrogating Saddam Hussein,” Piro said.
