A Stark Reminder of the Need for Vigilance

The foiled terrorist plot to commit mass murder using our airlines and our freedoms is a stark reminder of the constant need for vigilance in the war on terror. As we approach the fifth anniversary of 9-11, the terrorists have shown their ability to maneuver around the precautions we institute. We have to show the same ability to adapt to their endless capacity for fear, hatred, and death.  Today, I am very proud of the work of countless agents and first responders that thwarted this evil plot. And I stand ready to continue to work with these brave Americans to keep our homeland safe and secure.
