When it comes to assessing the terrorist threat to America, the Obama administration continues to send mixed signals.Last Wednesday, Secretary of State John Kerry testified on Capitol Hill that “Despite ISIL, despite the visible killings that you see and how horrific they are, we are actually living in a period of less daily threat to Americans and to people in the world than normally.” Last Thursday, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper contradicted Kerry. “When the final accounting is done, 2014 will have been the most lethal year for global terrorism in the 45 years such data has been compiled,” Clapper told the Senate Armed Services Committee.
