Ellison: Homegrown terror is a threat; Muslim parents need to talk to their kids
The first Muslim elected to Congress said Sunday that homegrown terrorism is an increasing problem, but cautioned law enforcement to work with the Muslim community to catch extremists.
On CBS’ “Face the Nation” Sunday, former New Jersey Gov. Thomas Kean, chairman of the 9/11 Commission, said a report last week from the Bipartisan Policy Center assessing the threat nine years after the attacks showed that al-Qaeda’s shifting strategy was a “real threat.”
“The strategy has changed,” Kean said. “They’re potting smaller attacks and using nontraditional people,” such as American citizens with passports who can travel freely.
