FBI Director Robert S. Mueller met today with a Senate committee to discuss the threats facing the United States and the efforts of the FBI to protect the country over the past 10 years.
The discussion, entitled "Ten Years After 9/11: Are We Safer?" included Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet A. Napolitano and Mathew G. Olson, director of the National Counterterrorism Center.
"The FBI’s number one priority in this mission continues to be the prevention of terrorist attacks against the United States," Director Mueller said in his prepared remarks. "To improve its ability to detect and disrupt those with the intent and capability to conduct attacks in the United States, the FBI has undergone a paradigm shift in the way we collect and use intelligence."
