Homeland Security Committee Chairman Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, said Tuesday that America is “far better prepared to prevent a terrorist attack” than it was prior to 9/11.

McCaul, in an interview with Fox News, reflected on the anniversary of 9/11, and how the United States has improved in anticipating and preventing terror attacks.

“I think it's important the American people know that we're far better prepared to prevent a terrorist attack,” he said.

“In fact, we stopped about 99 percent of the external operations since 9/11, we have stopped that. My committee, the committee on homeland security, was formed in response to the 9/11 attacks. The Department of Homeland Security was put together in response to the 9/11 attacks. We stopped, basically, bad people and bad things getting into this country, whether it be at the United States border, which I think is so important and the function of what [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] does, but also [the Transportation Security Administration] in terms of protecting Americans on aviation, passenger airliners such as what happened on 9/11.”

He added that “there is a current threat against our aviation sector. They always go back to it, it’s a crown jewel for them to bring down an American airliner, but we've been very successful in stopping that, and we've done a lot in Congress also to appropriate the money and the oversight to ensure that Americans are safe when they fly both here in the United States and overseas abroad.”
