Westerners fight with al Qaeda

Senator Dianne Feinstein, who chairs the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence told Candy that Al-Qaeda continues to be a threat in various regions around the world, including some areas in the Middle East and North Africa. States with failed governments are easier targets and are prime areas where jihadists seek control. Rep. Mike Rogers (R-MI), Chairman of the House Select Committee on Intelligence, agreed and said that it is time for Congress to focus on external threats, instead of infighting regarding the NSA. “We're fighting amongst ourselves here in this country about the role of our intelligence community that it is having an impact on our ability to stop what is a growing number of threats,” said Rogers.
