US intelligences contradicts Obama, Kerry on terror threat
Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said in front of a Senate Armed Services Committee today that the terror threat against the United States is expanding and revealed 2014 as the deadliest year on record for attacks around the world.This should be a bigger story, but the mainstream media is doing its best to ignore it. They appear to have sold out to the administration's misleading happy talk, which is reminiscent of last year's assertion that ISIL was the JV team. Obama can't say he was mislead by the intelligence, but it does seem likely that he and Kerry both must be ignoring it.
"When the final accounting is done, 2014 will have been the most lethal year for global terrorism in the 45 years such data has been compiled," Clapper said, detailing thousands of attacks throughout the year.
Just yesterday Secretary of State John Kerry said in front of the House Foreign Affairs Committee that the world is safer than ever from terror.
"We are actually living in a period of less daily threat to Americans and to people in the world than normally; less deaths, less violent deaths today, than through the last century," Kerry said.
Last summer, President Obama echoed that by saying the world is "less violent" than ever.
