Washington (CNN) -- The terrorist threat to the U.S. homeland has continued to "evolve" and may now "be at its most heightened state" since the September 11, 2001, terror attacks, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano told members of Congress on Wednesday.
There is an increased reliance on recruiting Westerners into terrorist organizations, she told the House Homeland Security Committee. State and local law enforcement officers are increasingly needed to combat terror, and the focus must be on aiding law enforcement to help them secure communities, she said.

I can't stand her, she makes me physically ill. God help us all if she should ever run for President, it's bad enough she has the power that she does now. She would be perfect for Josef Stalin's KGB.

Her extension got shot down she needs to paint citizens as a threat to have any hope of passing the other two extensions. This is typical of her, I'm supprised she didn't say "right wing" or "teabaggers" then she would have been using all her typical buzz words.

Honestly the parallels between former Communist systems and the Nazi system are so numerous that it amazes me that so many Americans have tolerated these policies and gone along with them.
Napolitano and those who think this is a ‘good’ or ‘safe’ path for the United States to go down as they argue to discard key provisions of the Constitution forever and ferment a culture of fear, really should face High Treason Charges and so should any lawmaker who votes for these insane policies.
I wonder how many politicians we would have left, if we actually decided that it was time for this madness to stop. Treason? There would be thousands of them plugging up the courts.
