This is what America's Spies Are worried About

Source: Defense One

How dangerous is the world? Listen to what leaders in 

the intelligence community are saying and it’s frightening.

Officials from America’s spy agencies testified before the 

Senate Select Committee on Intelligence on Tuesday on the 

Community,” an annual report that explains the biggest 

national security threats.

Besides the usual international hotspots—terrorism from the 

Middle East, Chinese militarization and Iran’s nuclear 

weapons program—many topical threats including 

organized crime, food and energy crises, and global pandemics are areas that are a growing concern to intelligence officials.
“Looking back over my more than half a century in intelligence, I have not experienced a time when we have been beset by more crises and threats around the globe,” Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told the committee. “My list is long. It includes the scourge and diversification of terrorism loosely connected and now globally dispersed, to include here at home, as exemplified by the Boston Marathon bombing.”
