The chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, Richard Burr, R-N.C., told Fox News viewers on Thursday night’s Special Report with Bret Baier that he is more worried about a terrorist attack on U.S. soil than at any time since September 11, 2001.
“In the 14 years of serving on the Intelligence committee, either in the House or in the Senate, I have greater fears today about something happening in the homeland than at any point after 9/11.”
Senator Burr further explained that ISIS is a different type of adversary because of their resources and ideology.

For every one ISIL fighter we kill, three come over the Turkish border as new recruits. They’ve got money, they’ve got something to sell, which is terrorism, barbaric terrorism. And we hope that they run out of recruits to go after.
The senator concluded articulating his concerns about America’s ability to protect the homeland and its citizens:
We’re the best in the world, make no mistake about it, but we’re not perfect. That’s what scares me.
