Lieberman: US Safer, Stronger, but Terror War Continues

Sen. Joe Lieberman believes that the United States is safer and stronger in the decade since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Al-Qaida, with its “violent ideology,” has made no significant gains in efforts to attack the United States, the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee said on CNN’s “State of the Union” news show today.

“Part of this anniversary, I think, is to look back,” the Connecticut independent said. “We really transformed ourself to meet this new threat of Islamist terrorism.”

Terrorists are “still out there,” Lieberman warned. “We’re still in a war. Tragically, it’s going to go on for awhile, but we’re a lot safer and stronger.”

Substantial work remains to comply with the 9/11 commission’s report.

“Until we do [comply], we will not have learned the lesson,” Lieberman said.

Also appearing on the show was Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, who said al-Qaida challenges attempts to develop sophisticated technology to detect bombs aboard aircraft.

“The enemy gets up every day, takes a look at our security changes, and then adapts,” he said. “That’s what makes al-Qaida so incredibly dangerous.”
