"house homeland security committee" Discussed on WNYC 93.9 FM
"This is all things considered from NPR news. I'm Elsa Chang. I'm Ari Shapiro. Unlike many other countries, the US does not have laws to charge extremists with domestic terrorism. And there's growing talk about whether that should change on Capitol Hill today, the house homeland security committee took up this topic and NPR national security correspondent, Greg my re was watching welcome to the studio. Greg, thanks. I think some people might be surprised to hear that extremists are not charged with domestic terrorism. Why is that the case so federal law, essentially, defines terrorism is acting on behalf of a terrorist group, and there's a list of about sixty of Islamic state Al Qaeda, but they're all foreign groups mostly Islam now, the US government law enforcement, even civil rights groups, like the ACLU have always been very reluctant for the US to create a list of domestic terrorism groups, they point to free speech in the first amendment and say, this could be used to outlaw groups based on ideology. So a white supremacist group can. Spouse, it's ideology, but it can't act violently. That's that's the key line. But there's always lawmakers who are sort of questioning this and today at the committee hearing, we have some some tape of democratic congresswoman Yvette Clark of New York speaking with the FBI's, Michael mcgarity, who's explaining the powers that are broader in a little different when it comes to foreign tear groups doesn't give you more latitude. Organization. The we don't designate white supremacist organizations service organizations. A white supremacist organization is in ideology, it's. They're not. But it's designated as we don't have designated terrorist organizations, meta domestic hearing seems to show some interest in creating domestic terrorism law. How much of a push in congress is there for this? Well, we are hearing lots of talk both in congress and outside often comes in response to these high profile cases involving the far-right more recently shootings at synagogues and churches we've seen and this always seems to reignite the debate. Why aren't we specifically calling this terrorism where terrorism related charges, but it's really talk at this stage not action in every time. A committee member raised it law enforcement with sort of nudge back. Here's Michael McCall, Texas, Republicans speaking with Brad Wedeman of the Justice department. And I was curious what your thoughts? Would be on congress enacting domestic terrorism charge. Designating domestic groups as domestic terrorist organizations in picking out particular groups that you say you disagree with their views, and so forth is going to be highly problematic. Greg I'm thinking defining domestic terrorism has got to be challenging depending on how you count it. How big a problem is this issue? So the said it's investigating eight hundred fifty cases right now. So this certainly gives you a sense of the extent of the problem, and how the resources they're devoting to it. But a key point these would not be prosecuted as terrorism cases. A definition of domestic terrorism exists in the Patriot Act, but in terms of actual killings in tallies. We're talking about six deadly attacks last year seventeen people killed so the actual number of fatalities. This is low. I know there's also debate about the role of social media, and congress is growing more critical of social media giants house congress responding on that front. So the law enforcement folks said that they are seeing some changes here social media companies are reporting threats, they're they're kicking people off their sights, the more willing to meet with law enforcement, and even hiring a lot of former law enforcement people to look into this. So they say they are seeing a stronger response these days Greg Meyer. Thanks a lot. Thanks Iran announced today, it would ramp up nuclear activities bacteria that it had suspended under a landmark agreement. It reached with the US and other countries in two thousand fifteen the news comes a year to the day after president. Trump pulled the US out of the deal, which he has described as one of the worst deals in history. The fact is this was a horrible one-sided deal that should have never ever been made me now to discuss what Iran's announcement means is NPR's Jeff Brumfield he covers science and security, welcome. Hi. All right. What has a Ron said? It is going to do at this point. Well, it's not pulling out of the deal. It's made that clear what it said it's going to do is suspend participation key parts of it. Specifically it's going to start stockpiling some nuclear material like uranium above limits set by the deal, and it's going to suspend some of its commitments around enriching uranium and a nuclear reactor building. It's given sixty days for European nations and other partners to come up with some sort of economic benefit for it. And if that happens it's going to reconsider so just remind us again, what is at the heart of this nuclear deal. Well, this nuclear deal is about limiting Iran. Runs excess to nuclear materials. So in the run up to the deal, Orion was enriching uranium using these machines called centrifuges, and it got really really close to having the material at needed for a nuclear weapon within a matter of weeks. It could have Certa sprinted ahead and made a bomb if it wanted to. So the idea was to slow it down and to put safeguards in place like nuclear inspectors, Richard Johnson was at the State Department overseeing the implementation of the steel he's out the nuclear threat initiative, and this is the way he sums it up. The basic bargain was Iran restricts enrolls back its nuclear program under strict verification and the United States the European Union rolls back sanctions pressure and it worked Iran currently needs about a year to make a nuclear bomb. If it decided wanted to that was sort of the limit that the deal set, but that sanctions relief never really came through. President Trump got. Elected. He reimposed sanctions on oil, which was really hard on Iran today. They even impose more sanctions on steel and other metals, so Iran's feeling frustrated so seem like the deal was working. Why did President Trump, and it was such a rotten deal? Basically, it comes down to what wasn't in the deal so things like ballistic missiles that Iran developing its behavior throughout the region. You know, the Revolutionary Guards activities in places like Yemen has blessed stuff like that. Okay. So if Ron starts ramping up some of its nuclear activities as threatening to do what kind of arsenal. Are we potentially looking at? Well, we're not looking at anything just yet. I mean, Ron has said its nuclear program is peaceful. It isn't you know, trying to make a bomb, but what this is is kind of narrowing that window back down. So that if it decided if wanted to go to a bomb, it could presumably it'll stay at a urinal start to slide back to money. And then maybe weeks again, but anything that happens. We're going to know because there are international inspectors on the ground in Iran. They even have remote monitoring setup in the facilities that on uses to enrich uranium, so they know right away if something's going on. So I think that you know, we're looking at a shortening of that time line. That's the real concern here is it fair to say, then that the Iran nuclear deal is basically dead now or could it be salvaged? No, it's definitely not dead. We have to see what the other partners in the deal, the European Union, China and Russia decide to do if they can offer anything to Iran. Of course, it's a very tough situation for them because any companies that do business with Iran could face sanctions from the United States point. And we have to see what happens in Iran. There's some people who may want to wait this invention out. See what happens after the election twenty twenty. But they're definitely other hardliners who feel that they've already given up too much. That's NPR's. Jeff brumfield. Thanks, jeff. Thank you. You're listening to WNYC one year ago. President Trump announced that the US was pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal. The fact is this was a horrible one-sided deal that should have never ever been made now. Iran says it will resume certain nuclear activities it had suspended under the agreement. We're going to continue a closer.

And I saw nothing wrong with congressman Bennie Thompson is the chairman of the house homeland security committee. He tells ABC's this week President Trump took this as an opportunity to attack congresswoman ohm. When he re tweeted a video edited to imply that Omar was being dismissive of the nine eleven attacks. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders saw loud wrong with Omar speech. And I think that it's a good thing that the president is calling her out for those comments. Also, speaking on ABC's this week Sanders said she didn't understand why Democrats were in calling her out to they look the other way where presentative Thompson says the president is going too far. If I look at what the president says on a daily basis, we criticize him almost by the hour.

But the president is absolutely. And should be calling out the congresswoman for her not only one time, but history of antisemitic comments house voted earlier this session to condemn anti-semitism and a host of other issues after Omar made some comments that were viewed as antisemitic tropes Sanders. Said that vote didn't go far enough. They do these water down pushbacks that frankly, they feel like give them enough cover Thompson SIS. Speaking out is one thing, we're a nation of laws democracy, free speech is here. But Thompson says the president's re tweet of that video viewed more than nine million times is quite another matter, especially if it leads to violence. That's why house speaker Nancy Pelosi.

The TSA defense the program saying, quote it's a practical method of keeping another. Act of terrorism from occurring at, thirty thousand feet to learn more about this, and the implications we turn to the, KCBS ring. Central Newsline now to speak, with CBS news correspondent Kris van cleave thanks for taking a few minutes to talk to us Chris how, long has this program Ben in operation and how does it work how how does the TSA decide what travelers to follow well it was launched in two thousand ten but it was, expanded, in, March and that's when we're hearing that teams of air. Marshals. Were assigned to essentially shadow People who make this. List we understand that somewhere in the ballpark of fifty flyers domestically a day and it's a it's a program that's generated Hearst by a computer that's looking for a computer algorithm. That's looking for patterns in travel or not soci- it's and, that will flag people and then those people are vetted by a team? At, the TSA to see if there is a sort of an articulated reason to how people observed or surveilled while they're traveling. So Christie's folks who are being surveilled or watched it flying what sorts of things are the marshalls looking for in terms of flags well th they're tracking a host of behaviors. Air marshals just like the? The TSA officers have checkpoints are trained in behavioral recognition? So, they're looking for things that stand out, now that could be something as, simple as somebody who is excessively sweating or seems twitchy or one of them was A a certain kind of stare cold penetrating stare but really what they're looking for is suspicious. Behavior that that sort of forms a bottle of the type, of behaviors that would raise concern if they don't see anything like that? If, you don't see anything like that the, people are there's no incident that people are off the list within ninety days is. There any evidence as the TSA releasing information about whether something has happened whether they had been able to arrest somebody for some reason based on on this program The TSA is nice saying very, little about this program other than, to insist. That it needs privacy standards and that though the program's goal is to ensure passenger and flight crews are protected during air travel agency points out that race and religion are not. Taking into account into the program is, not intended to survey ordinary Americans the amazing things about the story traces that has. Been going on for so long this program I think you mentioned it started, its first iteration in two thousand ten and yet it really has remained in the shadows Yeah, and and you know what what brought this up is you have rank and file air? Marshals who had started to complain in some cases have filed complaints with the inspector general about this program. And using air marshalls to essentially babysit undercover babysit folks who may or may not hose arrest aviation their argument is it takes them away from their real focus of protecting that cockpit door and it may put them on. On flights essentially to nowhere as opposed to higher profile flights internationally even though the TSA says. That the program meets privacy standards is there any information that you have, that there might be some legal challenges to it Well we we know that the TSA has briefed the airlines.
