Says men who collectively have virtually no clue what is actually going on and can't get their vast and near useless bureaucracies to even play nice together. Feinstein asks and the farce begins.
"What is the likelihood of another terrorist-attempted attack on the U.S. homeland in the next three to six months? High or low?"
"An attempted attack, the priority is certain, I would say," Director of National Intelligence Dennis C. Blair, a retired admiral, said in response.
Four other intelligence agency leaders who appeared at the hearing with Mr. Blair said they agreed with the assessment.
Yawn. That is the easiest, weaseliest and least useful answer available. Blair was right to say so because there is no one who is going to come back to him in six months and say "Ah Ha! no terror attacks on the homeland you didn't really know did you?" Nobody tracks this and if they did he could say "Ah Ha! we must have stopped it". If he says "Nope, no attacks expected" or is actually honest and admits he has no freaking clue, then he is vulnerable to "Ah Ha"s from the media or Congress. But saying of course they are gonna try to attack us is safe and consequence free. It was also complete BS.
