Director of U.S. Intel, Clapper, says America is ripe for a terror attack

After 13 years of the war on terror, a key objective has remained elusive. This week Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper told the Senate Intel committee that America remains vulnerable to a terrorist attack.

“For attacks on the homeland I can’t say that the threat (of attack) is any less,” Clapper said at the committee hearing.

The news stunned members of Congress, especially after President Obama referred to al-Qaeda as the JV of terror groups and Osama bin Laden is dead and GM is alive.

Director Clapper also told lawmakers that al-Qaeda groups have opened terror camps "to train people to go back to their countries," and conduct more terrorist acts in more than 50 countries around the world.

So what does this mean for fatigued warriors? Can enlisted service members expect multiple deployments? Will American’s see more Army Rangers like Cory Remsburg, who was a guest of the First Lady at the State of the Union who suffered life- changing injuries after his 10th deployment?

President Obama commended the Ranger’s commitment to the army and America.

“And like the Army he loves, like the America he serves, Sergeant First Class Cory Remsburg never gives up, and he does not quit,” Obama at the SOTU.

What the President failed to discuss was the ramifications of America’s longest war.
