WASHINGTON – Today, Secretary of Homeland Security John F. Kelly announced the issuance of an updated National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) Bulletin pertaining to the homegrown terror threat.
“After careful consideration of the current threat environment and input from intelligence and law enforcement partners, I have made the decision to update and extend for six months the NTAS Bulletin based on the persistent threat from homegrown terrorists,” said Secretary Kelly. “We are in a generational fight against terrorist groups and those they inspire, and for us to protect our homeland we will need constant vigilance and clear focus on staying a step ahead of the enemy.”
This marks the fourth iteration of the Bulletin on the homegrown threat, which has been reissued twice previously since the initial Bulletin was released in December 2015.
