US domestic terror threat real

2010-04-04 20:28

Washington - The chairperson of the US senate homeland security committee says domestic terrorism is a real and growing danger.

Joe Lieberman, a Connecticut independent, says the political discourse in the US turns extreme and incendiary at times, and that can lead some people to take radical actions.

Federal authorities report an uptick in the activities of domestic extremist groups in the last year.

Noting the recent subway bombings in Moscow, Lieberman says more must be done to protect trains, subways and buses in the US.

Lieberman appeared on Sunday on NBC television's Meet the Press.
