Lieberman Says Latest Plot Highlights Ongoing Threat of Terror

Senator Lieberman released the following statement on the plot uncovered today to bomb trans-Atlantic passenger flights:

“At airports across the country today, the Department of Homeland Security has moved to tighten security because British authorities have uncovered a plot to destroy multiple passenger aircraft bound for the United States from the U.K. I appreciate the work of officials who appear to have significantly disrupted this planned attack. This should serve as the latest, most serious evidence that we are in a war against a brutal enemy that intends to attack us over and over again in the most indiscriminate way. The Department of Homeland Security is doing what it was created to do in the face of a terrorist threat: protecting the United States through the implementation of security measures, international cooperation, and coordination with the law enforcement and intelligence communities.”
