How the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security Sees the Iranian Threat


On Saturday, Jan. 4, Acting U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Chad F. Wolf issued a National Terrorism Advisory System Bulletin “pertaining to the changing threat landscape following the successful U.S.-led airstrike in Iraq that eliminated Qaseem Soleimani, the head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps-Quds Force, a U.S.-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization.”

“At this time we have no information indicating a specific, credible threat to the Homeland. Iran and its partners, such as Hizballah, have demonstrated the intent and capability to conduct operations in the United States…

“An attack in the homeland may come with little or no warning” was the heart of the advisory.

It concluded by noting that “The Department of Homeland Security is working closely with our federal, state, local, and private sector partners to detect and defend against threats to the Homeland, and will enhance security measures as necessary.”
