Chairman Mike Rogers (R-MI) and Ranking Minority Member Dutch Ruppersberger (D-MD) today announced the House Intelligence Committee’s first hearing of the 112th Congress. The Worldwide Threat Hearing is an open hearing the Committee holds annually. The open hearing will be immediately followed by a closed session
The open hearing will be held at 10:00am on Thursday, February 10, 2011 in room HVC-210 of the Capitol Building. The closed session will immediately follow in a different room.
In announcing the open hearing, Chairman Rogers said, “The threats our nation faces, compounded by dramatic changes in technology, continue to change and grow in complexity. As these threats evolve, our understanding of those threats, and more importantly our response to those threats, needs to keep pace.”
“On the Intelligence Committee, our first priority is protecting the American people. Good intelligence is our best defense against terrorism. Threats and technology are always changing. We must evolve and change with them to ensure our men and women in the intelligence community have the resources, technology, and capabilities they need to keep us safe,” said Congressman C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger, Ranking Member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.
