Brian Moynihan
There ought to be a hard look at the policy of anonymous currencies, because the ability to track information of money flowing is one we use seriously against terrorism and as [a tool] against improper, illegal behavior. What our banking system does for this country and the world is we track all this money and the data can be found and then you can do things to find people.feedback

All quotes about Terrorism

Rex W. Tillerson

In the fight against terrorism the United States will stand shoulder to shoulder with India. Terrorists' safe havens will not be tolerated.feedback

Steven Mnuchin

This bold and innovative multilateral approach is needed because terrorism poses a threat to all of our nations. It is critical that we come together to combat this. We coordinated this action with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Oman, Bahrain, and Qatar, who designated these advocates of terror under their own domestic authorities. This is the largest ever multilateral designation in the Middle East.feedback

Ahmet Agaoglu

In the history of Antalya, there isn't a single person who has been injured because of terrorism.feedback

Igor Kulyagin

We have taken into account the huge experience, accumulated by the National Anti-Terrorism Committee and the security organizations involved in providing security for the Sochi Olympic Games, the Kazan Universiade and other huge events. Of course, special attention will be paid to providing anti-terrorism safeguards of the infrastructure that will be used for hosting the competition, such as the teams' stadiums, accommodation units and training facilities.feedback

Daniel Byman - The Brookings Institution

What do you do when your allies are part of the problem? The desire to turn our backs on these people is there, but then you worry that terrorists will have more operational freedom and it will cost you more in the long run.feedback

Ryan Crocker

Getting tough on Pakistan, which we've tried before, never works. In fact, it has the opposite effect. They just dig in deeper.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

Has stressed to all . . . that he believes that it is time to find a solution to this dispute. The U.S. is prepared to facilitate in any way we can," but "fundamentally, the parties have to come to a point that they're ready to solve this. We have additional work to do, but we are quite pleased with the progress and the relationship that has been strengthened between the two countries – Qatar and the United States – to counter terrorism.feedback

Mohammad Javad Zarif

Exactly what country is it that Iraqis who rose up to defend their homes against ISIS return to? Shameful US FP (foreign policy), dictated by petrodollars. Unfortunately, the Americans do not want to rectify their viewpoint [and understand] that Iran is a source of stability and peace as well as a campaigner against terrorism in the region.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

We expect Pakistan to take decisive action against terrorist groups based there that threaten its own people and the broader region. It is the obligation, not choice, of every civilised nation to combat the scourge of terrorism. The United States and India are leading that regional effort together. China, while rising alongside India, has done so less responsibly. The "need to collaborate with India to ensure that the Indo-Pacific is a region of peace and stability.feedback

Rory Stewart

If you wish to serve your country and you wish to fight terrorism, then please apply to join the military or join the police or join our intelligence services, we'll train you, we'll work with you to do it in a legal and controlled fashion. I don't think anyone should be in any doubt that the control that he has is brutal and ultimately fragile. The policy of the British Government is that Bashar al-Assad needs to step aside and we need transition to a new government, because so long as that man is in power it is going to be impossible to have a long-term, stable, sustainable future for Syria.feedback

Delfin Lorenzana

While we submit that these tactical and strategic gains will not annihilate the ideology completely, we declare that this achievement is a clear manifestation of how our regional cooperation can lead to a decisive advance against the proliferation of terrorism in this part of the world.feedback

John Flatley

While improvements made by police forces in recording crime are still a factor in the increase, we judge that there have been genuine increases in crime – particularly in some of the low incidence but more harmful categories.feedback

Donald J. Trump

History has shown that the longer we ignore a threat, the more dangerous that threat becomes…We will not continue down a path whose predictable conclusion is more violence, more terror, and the very real threat of Iran's nuclear breakout. Our policy is based on a clear-eyed assessment of the Iranian dictatorship, its sponsorship of terrorism, and its continuing aggression in the Middle East and all around the world…Based on the factual record I have put forward, I am announcing today that we cannot and will not make this certification.feedback

Talal Sillo

Our victory is one against terrorism, and the liberation of Raqqa marks the latest chapter in the fight against terrorists in Syria. We call upon all countries and peace-loving forces and all humanitarian organizations to participate in rebuilding the city and villages around it and help in removing the scars of war that were inflicted by the Islamic State.feedback

Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani

It is nothing to do with stopping financing terrorism or hate speech while they are doing the same by promoting incitement against my country, promoting a regime change in my country.feedback

Elena Cavallone - Euronews

Some Member States are already applying many of the measures being presented by the European Commission. With this package, the EU executive body wants to harmonize counter terrorism strategies within the EU, which in some cases remain fragmented.feedback

Julian King

We have to accept that the terrorists don't stand still: they change and adapt their methods and we need to be ready to adapt our response.feedback

Sophie Bjork-James

It's complicated, because we celebrate free speech in the United States, but we also fear domestic terrorism, so that poses significant moral quandaries about how much speech to accept and how police and other government agencies can prepare.feedback

Derrick Watson

In other words, the categorical restrictions on entire populations of men, women, and children, based upon nationality, are a poor fit for the issues regarding the sharing of 'public-safety and terrorism-related information' that the President identifies. This leads to absurd results.feedback

Boris Johnson

The UK condemns in the strongest terms the cowardly attacks in Mogadishu, which have claimed so many innocent lives. Those responsible have shown no regard for human life or the suffering of the Somali people. The UK will continue to support Somalia in the fight against terrorism.feedback

Nikki Haley

What we need to say is, we have to hold them accountable. They can't be continuing to support terrorism around the world, like we're seeing they do. They can't continue to test ballistic missiles, which will lead to a nuclear Iran. They can't continue to do arms smuggling in the way that they're doing.feedback

Benjamin Netanyahu

If the Iran deal is left unchanged, one thing is absolutely certain: In a few years' time, the world's foremost terrorist regime will have an arsenal of nuclear weapons, and that's a tremendous danger for our collective future. President Trump has just created an opportunity to fix this bad deal, to roll back Iran's aggression and to confront its criminal support of terrorism. That's why Israel embraces this opportunity, and that's why every responsible government, and any person concerned with the peace and security of the world should do so as well.feedback

John McGuinness

The allegation is that between 12 February and 30 March she committed an offence linked to terrorism. The prosecution say that her husband, intended to commit terrorist acts in the UK and he engaged in conduct in preparation for carrying out his intention. There is no doubt that Mirza did intend to commit terrorist acts in the UK and that he engaged in conduct in preparation for carrying out his intention.feedback

John McGuinness

The prosecution say that Madiha Taheer intended to assist her husband to commit acts of terrorism within the UK.feedback

Mike Pompeo

For unlike ISIS and its mirage of a caliphate, Iran is a powerful nation-state that remains the world's largest state-sponsor of terrorism. The Islamic Republic is Iran's version of what the caliphate ought to look like under the control of an Ayatollah and his praetorian guard, the IRGC.feedback

Claire McCaskill

Given the threats posed to the United States by everything from terrorism to natural disasters, having permanent leadership in place at the Department of Homeland Security is more important than ever. I look forward to working with Chairman [Ron] Johnson to ensure that the Committee's process is comprehensive and fair.feedback

Rodrigo Duterte

You built your riches, you were ahead in the industrial race of planet earth because you stole the greatest resource of the Arabs – oil. You colonised there, then started to divide the Middle East - the United States, UK, France, and that is why you are paying heavily now with terrorism. May you end up happy for what you have done.feedback

Anwar Gargash

Hosting World Cup 2022 should not be tainted by support of extremist individuals and organisations and terrorist figures, (and) review of Qatar's policies a must. Qatar's hosting of World Cup 2022 should include a repudiation of policies supporting extremism and terrorism. Doha should review its record.feedback

Todd Mickelson

It's an ideal tool because it takes 30 minutes or less, it's non-intrusive, it can be administered anywhere in any language, and it can be utilized to verify very quickly whether or not someone has ties to terrorism or they have a past of committing serious crimes.feedback

Dominic Raab - The Telegraph

Having extended the scheme for appealing unduly lenient sentences to those who radicalise individuals or turn a blind eye to terrorism, these new guidelines will help ensure we have the most rigorous and robust sentencing in terrorism cases.feedback

Jake Sullivan

This dance around decertification has not been productive for our broader goals. It's much harder to push our European partners to pressure Iran on missiles and terrorism when they are more focused on the risk Washington poses than they are on the risk Tehran poses.feedback

Mohammed Zaree

I think this is a message to the Egyptian authorities that the world is watching and it is concerned about the situation of human rights defenders in Egypt. They are leaving a wide space for Islamic terrorism and fundamentalists. Our fates as citizens are also deeply connected. Your freedom and rights depend on also defending the freedom and rights of Egyptians.feedback

Michael Crumrine

Every year since 9/11, and since everything that's happened with domestic and international terrorism, it's just a part of life now. Is that sad? Yes.feedback

David Anderson

The threat from extreme right-wing terrorism in the UK is currently fragmented, but the massacre perpetrated by Anders Brevik in Norway is a warning against underestimating the threat. Both the Government and the courts treat the threat with the seriousness it deserves. A sophisticated network is not a prerequisite for mass slaughter.feedback

Jeremy Fleming

It remains the case that much of what we do must remain secret. But I welcome the shift. If GCHQ is to continue to help keep the country safe, then protecting the digital homeland – keeping our citizens safe and free online – must become and remain as much part of our mission as our global intelligence reach and our round-the-clock efforts against terrorism. In dealing with these cases … the NCSC drew on GCHQ's data, analytical capabilities, skills and partnerships, which help us to prevent attacks as well as respond to them.feedback

Jeremy Fleming

We all derive great benefit from the ease and speed of connecting across the planet: access to knowledge, reduced costs of communication and commerce, and from the additional security provided by default encryption. It's also true to say that hostile states, terrorists and criminals use the same features to undermine our national security, attack our interests and, increasingly, to commit crime.feedback

Jeremy Fleming

All of this can feel deeply challenging for a GCHQ that by necessity has worked in the shadows. It remains the case that much of what we do must remain secret. But the success of the NCSC demonstrates that we are more effective, a better employer and more trusted if we are more transparent, more visible and take advantage of the internet to drive change.feedback

Connor Honeyman

We heard a horrible thudding noise and a car engine. Everyone started running and screaming inside.feedback

Ibrahim Hassan

Infrastructure is completely destroyed, water, electricity networks, bridges. There's not a single service functioning. We gave our city as a sacrifice for the sake of defeating terrorism. It's the world's duty to help us. Support from the international community has improved and we feel less isolated, but it's been modest. We've suffered from bureaucracy in the decision making process for foreign aid.feedback

Mahamadou Issoufou

Our country has just been attacked once more by terrorist groups, an assault which sadly has resulted in a large number of casualties. Women and children pay a heavy price for terrorism, directly as innocent victims and indirectly as mothers and spouses.feedback

Moustafa Bayoumi

Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock seems to fit every definition of a terrorist – apart from being Muslim. We have a double standard in the United States when it comes to talking about terrorism. The label is reserved almost exclusively for when we’re talking about Muslims.feedback

David Vaile

There's a moral panic. In Australia, deaths from terrorism are below one person annually – many magnitudes less than the domestic violence death rate. But terrorism is very potent politically for politicians who wish to use fear.feedback

David Vaile

As a proportionality exercise, it's unclear to me what the actual benefits are. We already have a high-integrity identification system for various purposes. We have extremely low rates of terrorism. There's occasional activities that, by and large, existing mechanisms tend to catch.feedback

Rosanne Cash

I know you'll be bullied for speaking out. This is how they operate. Not everyone will like you for taking a stand. Let it roll off your back.feedback

Rosanne Cash

The people who write gun regulations are the very people who profit from gun sales. The NRA would like to keep it that way. If the proposed law had passed before the mass shooting in Las Vegas on Sunday, and the rifles in the assailant's hotel room had been fitted with silencers, one could safely assume that the death toll would be much, much higher. Those who ran from the concert and survived did so because they heard the gunfire. None of that matters to the NRA.feedback

Rosanne Cash

Last year, I performed at the Concert Across America to End Gun Violence with Jackson Browne, Eddie Vedder, Marc Cohn and the Harlem Gospel Choir, and we got death threats. People wanted to kill us because we wanted to end gun violence. That's where we are: America, 2017.feedback

Christine Lazerges

Legally speaking, we've armed ourselves to the teeth in the fight against terrorism.feedback

Christine Lazerges

Since 1986 there has been a succession of laws whose goal is to fight organized crime and terrorism.feedback

Bernard Higgins

What we've seen in recent times - particularly in the UK - it's low sophistication, it's small numbers of people, often lone actors. They're using vehicles, they're using knives and bladed weapons, but the impact is high and the casualties are high. This is an exercise - it's not because we know something is going to happen or we believe something is going to happen. There is absolutely no intelligence to suggest that Scotland is going to be a specific target of terrorism at any point in the future.feedback

Mark Kelly

This is the worst-case scenario. It's haunted our dreams, that we would wake up to the news of a massacre like this: weapons of war, in the hands of a determined killer, with a tactical advantage. This was an ambush if there ever was one. This was domestic terrorism.feedback

Justin Trudeau

The Government of Canada and Canadians stand with the people of Edmonton after the terrorist attack on Saturday that sent an Edmonton Police Service officer to (the) hospital and injured a number of innocent people who were out to cheer on their football team and to enjoy an evening in their city. We cannot -- and will not -- let violent extremism take root in our communities. We know that Canada's strength comes from our diversity, and we will not be cowed by those who seek to divide us or promote fear.feedback

Austin Elgie

I have a registered nurse on my bar team, and I grabbed her and had her look after the guy until the ambulance came. He was breathing and we got him in the ambulance and he was still breathing.feedback

Rod Knecht

He was in a struggle for his life, holding onto his gun with one hand and blocking the knife with the other. It's a testament to his experience and his training that he survived the confrontation.feedback

Austin Elgie

There were, like, 10 cop cars following him. ... It was crazy. It just came around the corner, ripping. I thought at first he was pulling over for the cops coming by, but he was clearly the one they were chasing.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Ryan died as he lived, a warrior and a hero, battling against terrorism and securing our nation. Ryan's legacy is etched into eternity. They explained what they wanted to do, the generals, who are very respected. My generals are the most respected that we've had in many decades, I would, I believe.feedback

Felix Economakis

It's always on high alert because the moment you walk out of the door, you're fighting to get on the bus, you're seeing newsflashes about terrorism, you're worrying about keeping your job – there's no respite.feedback

Jeffrey Robinson

Everyone agrees what happened in September 2012 was a tragedy and Americans suffered a tragic loss. Mr. Abu Khattala agrees it was a tragic loss but disagrees he is the person responsible for it.feedback

Robert Chesney

There are dozens upon dozens of terrorism-related cases, but every now and then there is one that has the potential to reframe how people think about the efficacy of civilian prosecution. This has all the hallmarks of such a case.feedback

Isma Pasha

The 7/7 terrorists were never described by the media as 'British terrorists.' Even when the word 'British' was used, it was always 'British of Pakistani descent' or 'British Muslim' or, my favorite, British passport holders,' always something interposed between their Britishness and terrorism.feedback

Theresa May

The United Kingdom is unconditionally committed to maintaining Europe's security and we will continue to offer aid and assistance to EU member states that are the victims of armed aggression, terrorism and natural or manmade disasters... While we are leaving the European Union, as I have said many times, we are not leaving Europe so the United Kingdom is unconditionally committed to maintaining Europe's security.feedback

Filippo Grandi - United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees

It was … very obvious to me when I visited northern Rakhine that it was just a matter of time before terrorism would spring up from the situation of discrimination or poverty that prevailed in that area. The terrain is very fertile for that, so it is also a question of addressing this issue not only for the Rohingya, not only for northern Rakhine, but for the entire region. Because if the situation is not resolved, the risk of the spread of terrorist violence in the whole region – and this is a particularly fragile region – is very, very high.feedback

Dhruva Jaishankar

Unmanned vehicles, like those whose sale has been proposed by the United States, would allow India to monitor activities in the region much better ... Clearly, there are concerns about the militarization of the Indian Ocean, including the increased presence of China's People's Liberation Army Navy. Armed drones can be used for a number of functions, including counter-terrorism activities. The U.S. has used them quite effectively against groups in Pakistan and Afghanistan.feedback

Rebecca Poulet

In my judgment these sermons represented serious and persistent although frequently indirect encouragement to acts of terrorism.feedback

John Cameron

Since April, Childline has already received more than 300 contacts from young people anxious about terrorism, so we know it's a child welfare issue that is impacting on their emotional wellbeing. Adults can help a child by listening to their worries, reassuring them these events are rare, and teaching them to Run, Hide, and Tell.feedback

Benjamin Netanyahu

This murderous attack is the result of – inter alia – systematic incitement by the Palestinian Authority and other elements and I expect Abu Mazen [Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas] to condemn it and not attempt to justify it. Security forces will continue to take action against incitement and terrorism as they have been doing night and day and we, of course, will finish the investigation of the incident and will discuss together the next steps.feedback

Muhammad Rabbani

I considered that although the police were in law entitled to ask questions so that they could satisfy themselves I was not engaged in terrorist activity, that did not justify my in addition being required to expose all the sensitive contents of my phone to being copied and undoubtedly disseminated not just to police but to intelligence services and possibly elsewhere in the world - an unjustifiable, uncontrolled acquisition of material. It was a case involving the US against an individual who was allegedly tortured over the course of 12 or 13 years in US custody.feedback

Muhammad Rabbani

It was a case involving the US against an individual who was allegedly tortured over the course of 12 or 13 years in US custody. There were around 30,000 [documents] which I was especially uncomfortable handling and I felt an enormous responsibility to try and discharge the trust that was given to me and the lawyers I met at that event. We are quite confident that the law is on our side and the court will recognise that I'm actually innocent of any wrongdoing and was protecting an important principle: client confidentiality and legal privilege.feedback

Bashar al-Assad

We will not allow enemies and rivals to achieve through politics what they failed to achieve through terrorism.feedback

John Campbell

I think it's a matter of incompetence. Here you have a country that in terms of the most important political issue in Africa, terrorism, is on the right side. It is one of the poorest countries in the area. American airports are not overwhelmed by Chadians arriving. You put this all together and I fall back on incompetence.feedback

Wade Ishimoto

The force has been stretched to the max. Special operations should not be the panacea for every kind of difficulty that we find ourselves around the world facing, to include terrorism.feedback

Sadiq Khan

The phrase used by police experts, counter-terror experts, in relation to terrorism is what we're seeing is not a spike but a shift. And the reason why they say that is because if you look at the time when Fusilier Lee Rigby was murdered in 2013 up until the Westminster Bridge attack this year, there were 13 terrorist attacks thwarted because of the excellent work of the police and security services. If you look at the time between March of this year and now, yes there have been four terrorist attacks (in London) but there have been seven that have been thwarted.feedback

Steve Kerr

I would just say that as someone whose family member was a victim of terrorism, having lost my father, if we're trying to combat terrorism by banishing people from coming to this country, by really going against the principles of what our country is about and creating fear, it's the wrong way of going about it.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We will stop radical Islamic terrorism because we cannot allow it to tear up our nation, and indeed to tear up the entire world. In America, the people govern, the people rule, and the people are sovereign. I was elected not to take power, but to give power to the American people, where it belongs. In foreign affairs, we are renewing this founding principle of sovereignty. Our government's first duty is to its people, to our citizens–to serve their needs, to ensure their safety, to preserve their rights, and to defend their values.feedback

Shahid Khaqan Abbasi

Pakistan remains open to resuming a comprehensive dialogue with India to address all outstanding issues, especially Kashmir, and discuss measures to maintain peace and security. This dialogue must be accompanied by an end to India's campaign of subversion and state-sponsored terrorism against Pakistan, including from across our western border.feedback

Sara Thornton

In response to this significant threat, the government is increasing the money it spends on terrorism from £11.7bn to £15.1bn but only about £700m per annum is spent on policing. And the allocation of this budget for policing is set to be cut by 7.2% in the next three years. When the volume and nature of a threat is growing alarmingly, that is a real concern. With officer numbers at 1985 levels, crime up 10% in the last year and police work becoming ever more complex, this additional pressure is not sustainable. The current flat cash settlement for forces announced in 2015 is no longer enough.feedback

Sara Thornton

Experts tell us that the spate of attacks in the UK and Europe are a shift not a spike in the threat, which will take 20 or 30 years to eliminate. This new normality necessitates an open-minded dialogue with government about how we respond; and our resources have got to be part of the conversation. Police chiefs will do all they can to protect the public from terrorism. We will make choices about what we prioritise and where we invest. Some of these choices may be difficult and unpalatable to the public but we can make them if necessary.feedback

Maysam Berhavesh

Trump doesn't have to become Moscow or Tehran's best friend, but he should be considering measures like offering to de-list Iran as a "state sponsor of terrorism" and easing sanctions against Tehran and Moscow in return for their withdrawing support from anti-American forces in Afghanistan. Those measures aren't going to end Afghanistan's internal conflict, but they might de-escalate it enough for Trump to work on a new exit strategy for U.S. troops.feedback

Emmanuel Macron

There is nothing more effective than multilateralism in our current world because all our challenges are multilateral: war, terrorism, climate change, the digital economy.feedback

Spencer Ackerman - The Guardian

Sovereignty is not a point prior American presidents have pressed. When global leaders invoke sovereignty, they usually mean that no one possesses the right to oppose what they unleash within their borders. American presidents typically tailor their speeches at the UN to counterbalance a due respect for national sovereignty with calls for collective action against genocide, terrorism, disease, poverty, and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.feedback

Hassan Rouhani

The United States government should explain to its own people why, after spending billions of dollars of the assets of the people of America and of our region, instead of contributing to peace and stability, it has only brought war, misery, poverty and the rise of terrorism and extremism to the region.feedback

Nasim Ashraf

The Trojan horse allegation is the only one that is going to attract the kind of attention that was needed to hide the leadership's shortcomings. That's the only [allegation] that would ring the right bells in order for counter-terrorism and everybody else to take it seriously.feedback

Emmanuel Macron

Jihadist terrorism has hit every continent, our fellow citizens from every religion…This fight against terrorism is a military one. It is also educational, cultural, and moral.feedback

Masud Bin Momen

Our main problem is the availability of space. Space is scarce in Bangladesh, especially in that particular area already, from previous entries. We don't want them to mix with the other population. That is always a risk because the language or the dialect they speak is a little bit similar to what we do. So, if there are some smart ones, they can always mix with the mainstream population.feedback

Stephane Dujarric - United Nations

We know that Bangladesh, with the recent floods, is also facing its own difficulties. Our humanitarian colleagues are putting a plan together, which will need substantial financial support from the international community, and are working hand-in-hand with authorities in Bangladesh.feedback

Masud Bin Momen

In strict economic terms, of course, it'll put a strain (on Bangladesh's economy) but that will not deter us from doing whatever is dictated by our conscience. Our main thrust is that the international community can ensure the return of these people in safety and in dignity.feedback

Masud Bin Momen

You know, when you push people to a particular corner, when their backs are cornered, there are always elements in today's world that take advantage of those situations.feedback

Donald J. Trump

The Iranian regime's support for terror is in stark contrast to the recent commitments of many of its neighbors to fight terrorism and halt its finance.feedback

Amber Rudd

Recent events in the UK and across Europe have shown the criminal and terrorist threats we face are varied and increasingly international. The long-standing collaboration we have with our European partners allows us to jointly address these threats and keep our citizens safe. As we prepare to leave the EU it is therefore vital that we agree a new way to ensure continued security, law enforcement and criminal justice cooperation.feedback

Amber Rudd

The joint terrorist analysis centre, which reviews the threat level that the UK is under, has decided to lower that level from critical to severe. Severe still means that an attack is highly likely so I would urge everybody to continue to be vigilant but not alarmed.feedback

Jean-Yves Le Drian

He still faces terrorism-related charges but is free. The judicial process is still ongoing in Turkey.feedback

David Davis

We already have a deep level of collaboration with the EU on security matters and it is in both our interests to find ways to maintain it. We approach negotiations on our future special partnership with the EU as an opportunity to build on our existing achievements. A new security treaty with the EU would be underpinned by our shared principles, and should make sure our partnership has the agility to respond to the ever-changing threats we face.feedback

Benjamin Netanyahu

While Israel opposes terrorism as a whole, it supports the legitimate efforts of the Kurdish people to achieve their own state.feedback

Sadiq Khan

It is important we all remain alert and vigilant. There will be an increased police presence across London today and over this weekend, including additional armed officers. They are there to keep us safe. London will never be intimidated by terrorism. We will always defeat those who seek to harm us and destroy our way of life.feedback

Mark Rowley

We have hundreds of police officers trawling through CCTV footage, detectives have spoken to tens of witnesses and we've taken a number of calls to the anti-terrorism hotline from members of the public. Meanwhile the improvised explosive device on the train, the remnants of it have now been made safe and they've been taken away for specialist examination by forensics scientists. Whilst we chase down the suspects we are strengthening our policing resources on the streets of London and across the country.feedback

Ed Davey

It's good ministers have stopped threatening to use our collective security as a Brexit bargaining chip, but this proposal is deeply muddled. Britain must be part of Europe's top crime-fighting tools like the European arrest warrant and shared databases on criminals. But the prime minister's refusal to support any deal where the European court of justice retains judicial oversight is damaging our chances of preserving this vital co-operation.feedback

Cressida Dick

We have had some ghastly attacks and people have had to cope with really traumatic incidents. Not just terrorism but of course the horrors of the Grenfell fire. So I'm very proud of the Met people. They are tough, they are resilient, they are very determined, they are very passionate.feedback

Tony Blair

What I would say is that our anxiety, particularly straight after 9/11, was that you would end up in a situation where these unstable dictatorships, you know, which combined with terrorism to cause mass destruction. One of the things I've learned about this issue is that there's no point in me trying to relitigate it with people.feedback

Jim Nye

This is an historic step for the alliance and policing in the UK. These dogs will give the police a new way to fight the threat of terrorism, paedophiles and fraudsters. Tweed and Rob have been used by police at crime scenes and executions of warrants, not just within Cornwall, Devon and Dorset, but across the whole UK.feedback

Daniel Byman - The Brookings Institution

From a terrorist's point of view, they have to worry about the odds of success. Many groups can't afford to try 20 times and say, We'll lose some but it will be okay. They have to worry that one blown operation will have profound consequences.feedback

Daniel Byman - The Brookings Institution

The number of people who are skilled enough to operate in an environment where there aren't many people who speak their language and whose culture they don't know? It's a lot harder.feedback

Daniel Byman - The Brookings Institution

Europe has all of these land entry points. And especially when you're taking about the Islamic State – notionally, you could drive from Syria to Paris. You wouldn't drive, technically; you'd cross borders, take buses and all that, but even so, it's just harder to secure.feedback

Daniel Byman - The Brookings Institution

All of these are about probabilities. This doesn't stop anything; it just makes it harder. When stuff is harder, it requires more resources on their side, there's more chances of getting caught, there's more intelligence to focus on – and all of these have a significant cumulative effect over time. We know from some of the records we've seen over the years from groups like al-Qaeda that they see the United States as a harder place to get into than they do Europe.feedback

Theresa May

The police and the security services are obviously doing all the work to discover the full circumstances of this cowardly attack. The threat of terrorism we face is severe but together, by working together, we will defeat them. We are dealing with not just the terrorist threat but with the extremism and the hate that can actually incite that terrorism. We are looking very carefully at the powers that our police and security services have to make sure they have the powers they need.feedback

Neil Basu

There is no doubt that since March and following the attacks in London and Manchester we have seen a shift-change in momentum. But while the terrorist threat has increased in recent months, so has our activity, reflected by this significant increase in arrests. We're taking every possible opportunity to disrupt terrorist activity – be it making arrests for terrorism offences, intervening where there are signs of radicalisation, or working with communities to prevent terrorists operating in their area.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Look, we're led by a man that either is not tough, not smart, or he's got something else in mind. And the something else in mind – you know, people can't believe it. People cannot – they cannot believe that President Obama is acting the way he acts and can't even mention the words 'radical Islamic terrorism.' There's something going on. It's inconceivable.feedback

Michael Fallon

No it's not a negotiating tactic, it's too important for that. We want to be very clear that the day after we leave we continue to work together with the other European countries on security, fighting terrorism.feedback

Carolyn Everson - Global Marketing

We hear them loud and clear. We take very seriously our responsibility to earn and maintain the trust of our advertiser partners – and give them the confidence they need to invest in us. There is absolutely no place on Facebook for hate speech or content that promotes violence or terrorism. As soon as we determine that content has breached our community standards, we remove it. With a community as large as Facebook, however, zero tolerance cannot mean zero occurrence.feedback

Donald J. Trump

He's been very, very strong on terrorism in Malaysia, and a great supporter from that standpoint. He does not do business with North Korea any longer, and we find that to be very important.feedback

Michael Fallon

No, this isn't blackmail, this isn't a negotiating strategy. What we are doing, and everybody has asked for this, is to set out how we see the new partnership the day after Brexit. We want to fight terrorism together. It's vital. We are not making threats.feedback

Steve Frosdick

Venues have been increasing their 24/7 deterrence arrangements to make hostile reconnaissance more difficult. At matches, spectators will not notice some of the changes, for example plain-clothes personnel trained to watch for suspicious appearance or behaviour. But they might notice the adoption of a layered security approach with additional measures as they get closer to the stadium. Hostile vehicle mitigation and searching may be more thorough and there may be restrictions on bags.feedback

Steve Frosdick

Then the Manchester bombing showed there were no low-risk events any more. Stadiums, clubs and national associations have all been upgrading their counter-terror security measures and Uefa has been providing training and support.feedback

Mark Rowley

The police are the public, and the public are the police. It is my belief that without the public's help, some of the terror plots which we've foiled would have been successful.feedback

Mark Rowley

This means every strand of our society – not just those charged with national security responsibilities – coming together to have a more effective counter-terrorism machine.feedback

Neil Basu

An armed entry was necessary due to the nature of the intelligence that we were dealing with, and involved armed officers firing CS into the address. During the course of that operation one of the subjects of that operation, a woman, was shot by police. She remains in hospital. Her condition is serious but stable. Because of her condition, she has not yet been arrested. We are monitoring her condition closely.feedback

Donald J. Trump

If they don't stop the funding of terrorism, I don't want them to come together.feedback

Michael Stephens

The problem is as much about appearing to not capitulate to the other side as it is trying to solve any problems. Given the hypersensitivity of both sides to appearing weak, it makes the problem considerably harder to solve. If they don't stop the funding of terrorism, I don't want them to come together.feedback

Sasha Abramsky

The right wing has been very good at generating fear about terrorism, Muslim immigrants or young black criminals. On the left, they generate fear about climate change. We're going to have hurricanes with or without climate change, but they portray these storms like they are all to do with climate change.feedback

Ko Ko Hlaing

We need to wipe out the threat of the terrorism in those regions.feedback

Rodrigo Duterte

We have agreed that we will talk, the three of us. We are just waiting for the right time. In all probability, it will be a joint... task force. And I will open my borders to the Malaysian authorities and Indonesian authorities. They will be given access.feedback

Ernesto Abella

Granting Isnilon Hapilon's whereabouts in Basilan is true, it would mean that he chose to abandon his men as the battle of Marawi nears its final stretch. Our forces are hot on their heels and it will only be a matter of time before we get him.feedback

Bennie Thompson

There is a clear increase in activity by right-wing organizations in this country. We are coming up on the 12th anniversary of doing annual hearings on terrorism since 9/11, but we only hear about Muslim terrorism in the country. The time to look at this is overdue. We need to move beyond this reluctance to look at right-wing threats in this country.feedback

Munroe Bergdorf

Because most of ya'll don't even realise or refuse to acknowledge that your existence, privilege and success as a race is built on the backs, blood and death of people of colour. Your entire existence is drenched in racism. From micro-aggressions to terrorism, you guys built the blueprint for this s***. Come see me when you realise that racism isn't learned, it's inherited and consciously or unconsciously passed down through privilege.feedback

Kay Bailey Hutchison

Our country is going to go forward with a more robust effort to assure that there are no terror cells that are fermenting in Afghanistan and the surrounding areas.feedback

Kay Bailey Hutchison

We need to be more productive in anti-terrorism. I think there are a lot of real threats and I think we need to beef up the activities to address those common threats. I think our allies are ready to say and actually have said already that we are going to deter nuclear activities, we're going to speak with one voice.feedback

Pritti Patel - International Development

Terrorism knows no borders and the Nigerian Government must now follow our lead to stop innocent people dying and securing the area so that people can rebuild their lives in safety – reducing the threat of radicalisation and migration for the UK at home.feedback

Khaled Ali

Sissi is using terrorism as an excuse to do whatever he wants. Now, he's trying to control the political scene in the name of fighting terrorism.feedback

Khwaja Asif Asif

Afghanistan, the U.S. and its allies should close their borders to leaders of terrorist, militant groups carrying out acts of terrorism against Pakistan.feedback

Haider al-Abadi

We consider it an insult to the Iraqi people. Moving this number of terrorists for such a long distance through Syria is unacceptable. We are fighting terrorism in Iraq and we are killing them in Iraq. We don't send them to Syria.feedback

Haidar al-Abadi

There should be full cooperation on the elimination of terrorism, not the evacuation of them from one place to the other.feedback

Abraham Lacalle

I painted with some sense of humor, imagining what could happen to the content of a truck in movement. Nobody was then thinking about trucks as a tool of terrorism, so a work that was meant to be fun could now unintentionally appear pretty provocative.feedback

Ryan Dillon

The coalition, we are not party to this agreement between Lebanon, Hezbollah and ISIS. Their claim of fighting terrorism rings hollow when they allow known terrorists to transit territory under their control. ISIS is a global threat, and relocating terrorists from one place to another is not a lasting solution.feedback

Frederic Valletoux

Donald J. Trump

You know what? It's going to be just fine, because you have a great president. You have somebody that's going to run this country right.feedback

Theresa May

We would encourage China to do everything it can. As our closest security partner in Asia, we will also discuss how we can work much more closely together on cyber security, counter-terrorism and defence – more important than ever in this uncertain world.feedback

Paul Watson

What we discovered is that Japan is now employing military surveillance to watch Sea Shepherd ship movements in real time by satellite and if they know where our ships are at any given moment, they can easily avoid us. This year Japan escalated their resistance with the passing of new anti-terrorism laws, some of which are specifically designed to condemn Sea Shepherd tactics.feedback

Emmanuel Macron

Some groups of traffickers, who deal weapons and drugs also have links to terrorism, they have made the African desert and Mediterranean Sea a graveyard. These groups have deep ties to terrorism.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

He's completely wrong. And I think it shows a lack of understanding of the president's broader policy when it comes to protecting Americans at home and abroad from all acts of terrorism. Terrorism, as we've said, manifests itself in many types of organization.feedback

Narendra Modi

By then the poor shall have concrete houses, the farmer shall double his income, youths and women will get ample opportunities, and India [will be] free of casteism, terrorism, corruption.feedback

Terrorism is not going to be lingering here for ever. But climate change is an ongoing death sentence.feedback

Mariano Rajoy

There, with all of Catalan society and all of Spain ... we will once again give a clear message of unity and condemnation of terrorism, and of love for the city of Barcelona.feedback

Juan Ripoll

We have to know how to speak to each other and understand others. Everyone has to learn how to be more human.feedback

Mike Signer

It will never be possible again for the Lee statue to only tell the story of what happened here during the Civil War and the Jim Crow era. Its historical meaning now, and forevermore, will be of a magnet for terrorism.feedback

Luigi Brugnaro

They wanted to go to Allah. But we'll send them straight to Allah before they can do any damage.feedback

John Tecklenburg

This was not an act of terrorism. This was not a hate crime. This was a disgruntled employee who has come on the scene of his employment.feedback

Elie Seidman

We, of course, always veer on the side of caution. White supremacy and Nazi ideology perpetuate oppression, hate, violence, terrorism.feedback

Salvador Garcia-Ruiz - Ara

Spain's politicians and media have a long tradition of using terrorism as a political tool, the clearest example being what happened in 2004.feedback

Dejan Knezevic

They have the communist flag, but none of you guys will denounce them. Why isn't the president standing up against domestic terrorism?feedback

Russ Jackson

Our debriefs of staff have shown that Muhammad's explanation, his demeanour when stopped, the absence of any concern in background checks and the actual initial assessment of the device, certainly led to the view at the time that this was not a suspicious incident. This is an extremely serious incident at a time when people are concerned about terrorism, especially here in Manchester and whilst it should be acknowledged that the security checks were effective in finding the item, the assessment of the device should have been more comprehensive and taken place sooner.feedback

Mariano Rajoy

We know that terrorism can be defeated. It can be defeated through institutional unity, police cooperation, prevention, international support and the firm determination to defend the values of our civilization.feedback

Khawaja Asif

They should not make Pakistan a scapegoat for their failures in Afghanistan. Our commitment to the war against terrorism is unmatched and unshaken.feedback

Nancy Soderberg

We're not going to end up getting at an end to this war until we get at the root cause of the terrorism which is the abject poverty and corruption in the government. And that's a long-term effort.feedback

Ashraf Ghani

I am grateful to President Trump and the American people for this affirmation of support for our efforts to achieve self-reliance and for our joint struggle to rid the region from the threat of terrorism. The U.S.-Afghan partnership is stronger than ever in overcoming the threat of terrorism that threatens us all.feedback

Mohammad Omar

We are happy about this new strategy of U.S. We are the people who have suffered bloodshed, war and murder for long time. We are agree with Trump's strategy for war against terrorism by killing the terrorist and extremist groups. But we have witnessed 16 years of war, of U.S. in Afghanistan, and we haven't seen a positive impact for the life of Afghans ... However we are still optimistic for this strategy.feedback

Jan Zalewski - Verisk Maplecroft

Many terrorist groups in Pakistan maintain an overtly anti-Indian agenda, [so] a significantly increased Indian role in Afghanistan would likely increase terrorism risks against Indian targets in Afghanistan and in India itself.feedback

Malcolm Turnbull

We will never be cowed, nor will we bow to terrorism. But what we must do, of course, is take every step we can to protect Australians from the threat of terrorism and terrorist attacks.feedback

Toby Poston

The industry is obviously determined to prevent these attacks. We've been in discussions with various government departments and law enforcement agencies, and we have to make sure we comply with data protection and laws on discrimination. Ultimately, the police and government are the only ones who can make any changes. We want some kind of cross referencing of the data given to rental companies and the counter terrorism watchlist.feedback

Theresa May

This morning I spoke with Mariano Rajoy, the Spanish Prime Minister to offer my deepest condolences after the terrible attack that took place in Barcelona, and the UK stands shoulder to shoulder with Spain in confronting and dealing with the evil of terrorism and I have offered any assistance that we can provide. Sadly I must tell you that we do believe that a number of British nationals were caught up in the attack and we're urgently looking into reports of a child believed missing who is a British dual national.feedback

Mariano Rajoy

Unfortunately, Spaniards know the absurd and irrational pain that terrorism causes. We have received blows like this in recent years, but we also know that terrorists can be beaten.feedback

Billy Claraty

Jared is probably the nicest guy anybody could meet, if you talked to any one of his friends they would say they would call him their best friend.feedback

Billy Claraty

When he met her, it was immediate, they both knew. Heidi was his total life, they had a great, amazing relationship. He had a bumpy road for awhile with past relationships and once he met Heidi that turned around for him.feedback

Billy Claraty

He didn't live a life afraid, he didn't have fear of anything. He took things head on all the time and thought he would get through it. They were just out to celebrate one year and have a great time and see some friends. He is the kind of guy who would give you the shirt off his back, open his house up to you at any time, drop what he is doing to come over and do any kind of project you needed.feedback

Markus Laine

At this stage, there is only one suspect and we are investigating whether there are more people involved ... but it looks likely (he was alone). At this stage, we do not investigate this (as a terrorism attack) but the possibility has not been ruled out.feedback

Jennifer Rubin

James Murdoch, chief executive of 21st Century Fox, has pledged to donate $1 million to the Anti-Defamation League, according to an email he sent to friends. He told them, “What we watched this last week in Charlottesville and the reaction to it by the President of the United States concern all of us as Americans and free people.” He continued: “These events remind us all why vigilance against hate and bigotry is an eternal obligation - a necessary discipline for the preservation of our way of life and our ideals. The presence of hate in our society was appallingly laid bare as we watched swastikas brandished on the streets of Charlottesville and acts of brutal terrorism and violence perpetrated by a racist mob.” In pointed criticism of President Trump, he went on: “I can’t even believe I have to write this: standing up to Nazis is essential; there are no good Nazis. Or Klansmen, or terrorists. Democrats, Republicans, and others must all agree on this, and it compromises nothing for them to do so.”.feedback

Mariano Rajoy

Regretfully, we Spaniards are familiar with the pain caused by terrorism. We have suffered blows like this in our recent history. But we also know that terrorists can be beaten. They can be beaten through institutional unity, police cooperation, prevention, international support, and the firm determination to defend the values of our civilization: democracy, freedom and human rights.feedback

It confirmed my belief already that what had happened the night before was tantamount to terrorism, this visual display of these images meant to intimidate and to terrorize the population. But this [Heyer's murder] was a specific act.feedback

Mike Signer

It's in the quiet moments when the reality of it all sets in. They attacked us because of who we are. It was our work as a progressive southern city on race that made us a target.feedback

Mike Signer

I'm not going to sit here and criticize our first responders and police, and the hundreds of men and women in government and in our society who worked so hard to try and restore order.feedback

Mike Signer

I felt a combination of outrage and a kind of deep, welling sadness that these people would do this on that particular university. This is Thomas Jefferson's university. Its role in our long democratic experiment is very central. UVA was designed to inculcate the practices of a healthy democracy that was guided by stewards who were deeply committed to things like deliberation, fact-finding, civility, expertise, statesmanship as an ideal, challenging public opinion, trying to elevate the process so that you actually reach outcomes, so that you serve the people.feedback

Mike Signer

Locality will be the laboratory of the new democracy. These people [white extremists] really are attacking democracy itself. They see their mission in life as essentially violent, authoritarian, totalitarian, and based on spectacle and intimidation. That's fundamentally a violation of the democratic compact.feedback

Ada Colau

Terrorism will not stop us being who we are, a city that is open to the world.feedback

Simon Jenkins

The white van has become the poor man’s guided missile. We must work out how to retain a balance between defacing cities and averting risk. Europe has endured seven acts of vehicle terrorism in the past year, and the Barcelona killer was apparently able just to walk away. What on earth can be done?feedback

Donald J. Trump

You heard that, right? They were having terrorism problems, just like we do. And for 25 years, there wasn't a problem. Okay? Twenty-five years, there wasn't a problem.feedback

Nihad Awad

By directly stating that the only way to stop terrorism is to murder Muslims in graphic and religiously-offensive ways, he places the millions of innocent, law-abiding citizens in the American Muslim community at risk from rogue vigilantes.feedback

James Murdoch - Fox News Channel

Democrats, Republicans, and others must all agree on this, and it compromises nothing for them to do so.feedback

Sadiq Khan

My thoughts are with the victims of this barbaric terrorist attack in the great city of Barcelona and with their brave emergency services. London stands with Barcelona against the evil of terrorism.feedback

Donald J. Trump

They were having terrorism problems, just like we do. And he caught 50 terrorists who did tremendous damage and killed many people. And he took the 50 terrorists, and he took 50 men and he dipped 50 bullets in pigs' blood – you heard that, right? He took 50 bullets, and he dipped them in pigs' blood. And he had his men load his rifles, and he lined up the 50 people, and they shot 49 of those people. And the 50th person, he said: You go back to your people, and you tell them what happened. And for 25 years, there wasn't a problem. Okay? Twenty-five years, there wasn't a problem.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

There is no place for hate in our community. That's why we've always taken down any post that promotes or celebrates hate crimes or acts of terrorism – including what happened in Charlottesville. It's a disgrace that we still need to say that neo-Nazis and white supremacists are wrong - as if this is somehow not obvious. My thoughts are with the victims of hate around the world, and everyone who has the courage to stand up to it every day.feedback

Andrew M. Cuomo

Renaming these streets will send a clear message that in New York, we stand against intolerance and racism, whether it be insidious and hidden or obvious and intentional. Given the events of this week, including the violence and terrorism perpetrated by white supremacists in Charlottesville and the resulting emboldening of the voices of Nazis and white supremacists, I now strongly urge the U.S. Army to reconsider its decision and I call on them to rename these streets. Symbols of slavery and racism have no place in New York.feedback

Theresa May

Britain can be proud of this ship and what it represents. It sends a clear signal that as Britain forges a new, positive, confident role on the world stage in the years ahead we are determined to remain a fully engaged global power, working closely with our friends and allies around the world. Whether the task be high intensity war-fighting, targeted action to fight terrorism, or humanitarian relief to save lives overseas, these ships will transform the U.K.'s ability to project power around the world.feedback

Stefano Scuratti

European cities have been dealing with the aftermath of terrorist attacks, increased unease towards Brexit, and there is still a degree of unease towards migrant crisis. There have been more episodes in Sydney of suspected events [of terrorism], and general unease towards the topic.feedback

Richard Barrett

Just because there was one attack in a city is not to say there would be another, just as if there has not been an attack in a city it means that it is well protected. I'm not sure it's a particularly accurate measurement, and it certainly doesn't do counter-terrorism much good, because it encourages people to think that terrorism can have that broader effect on a city's economy, its reputation and so on.feedback

Donald J. Trump

You can call it terrorism. You can call it murder. You can call it whatever you want. I would just call it as the fastest one to come up with a good verdict. That's what I'd call it. There is a question. Is it murder? Is it terrorism? Then you get into legal semantics. The driver of the car is a murderer. What he did was a horrible, horrible, inexcusable thing. They are not taking their jobs seriously as it pertains to this country. We want jobs, manufacturing in this country. Look, I like Mr. Bannon. He is a friend of mine. Mr. Bannon came on very late. You know that.feedback

Terry McAuliffe

Neo-Nazis, Klansmen and white supremacists came to Charlottesville heavily armed, spewing hatred and looking for a fight. One of them murdered a young woman in an act of domestic terrorism, and two of our finest officers were killed in a tragic accident while serving to protect this community. This was not 'both sides.feedback

Narendra Modi

A collective resolve of the citizens was visible during 1942 to 1947 across the country, which forced the British to quit India within a span of five years. We will have to exhibit the same resolve from now on … to the year 2022.feedback

Narendra Modi

Use resolve to oust Britain 70 years ago to now end terrorism. Together, we will make an India free of terrorism, communalism and casteism. Together we will make an India free of corruption and agreements based on nepotism. Together we will make an India that is clean, healthy and self-reliant.feedback

Narendra Modi

Sometimes in the name of faith some people, due to lack of patience, end up destroying the social fabric. The country is governed by peace, harmony and unity. The poison of casteism and communalism can never benefit the country. This is the land of Gandhi and Buddha.feedback

Narendra Modi

Together, we will make an India free of terrorism, communalism and casteism. Together we will make an India free of corruption and agreements based on nepotism. Together we will make an India that is clean, healthy and self-reliant.feedback

Keith Ellison

Through his silence, President Trump is speaking loudly and clearly on how he feels about bias-motivated violence against people outside of what he considers his base. Right-wing terrorism is far more prevalent than any other form of terrorism in our country, by a 2-to-1 margin. It's time for the president's administration to address the right-wing hate groups that are a threat to American citizens.feedback

Christian Picciolini

The recruiters are very savvy and good at placing blame on blacks, on the government, on everyone else. These groups offer young disenfranchised whites power, purpose and an identity. They are being radicalized by fake news and conspiracy theories. We are ignoring a massive domestic terrorism problem that already exists in our borders.feedback

Barack Obama

Extremely poor societies and weak states, provide optimal breeding grounds for disease, terrorism and conflict.feedback

Bill Nettles

The point of terrorism is to spread fear. The point of a hate crime is to inflict hate on one of the specific groups that is narrowly defined in the statute.feedback

Timothy J. Heaphy

It matters a lot for public confidence in government and our ability to respond to attacks like this. If this is domestic terrorism, if this is hate based, it has to be called out as such. It may not make a difference for the number of days this person may spend incarcerated, but it makes a huge difference for … our ability to hold people accountable for what they did.feedback

Bill Nettles

For something to be a hate crime, it has to be more than you hate somebody. It's got to be you hate somebody that is one of the groups of people, the narrowly defined groups of people, contained in the hate crimes statute.feedback

Timothy J. Heaphy

If you're a racist and you kill someone, that doesn't mean it's a hate crime. There has to be an explicit connection between the two for it to be a civil rights offense.feedback

David C. Gomez

It goes back to motivation. Either way, a hate crime in court, a prosecutor has to prove motivation, and for terrorism, he has to prove motivation. So for the investigator, they say, How do I prove that?feedback

Mitch Landrieu

These monuments purposefully celebrate a fictional, sanitized Confederacy. After the Civil War, these statues were a part of that terrorism as much as a burning cross on someone's lawn; they were erected purposefully to send a strong message to all who walked in their shadows about who was still in charge in this city.feedback

Rich Lowry

That's all the alt-right stands for, is white nationalism. They are now indistinguishable. Worse than that, they are now associated with domestic terrorism.feedback

Heather Nauert

At this point we are left with one simple question: were the actions really about their concerns regarding Qatar's alleged support for terrorism.feedback

Lisa Monaco

I think the biggest question is whether the F.B.I. is going to investigate this as a domestic terrorism case, given the presence of groups that have been the subject of such investigations before or would meet their criteria, like the K.K.K., and the nature of the attack. A guy plowed his car into a crowd of protesters – that kind of violence, committed for seeming political ends, is the very definition of domestic terrorism.feedback
