With that in mind, here is the entirety of David Gregory's questions for Deputy National Security Adviser John Brennan on today's Meet the Press:
MR. GREGORY: We're up against a very difficult threat, as was underlined during testimony in front of the Intelligence Committee this week. This is a portion of that question.
[(Videotape, February 2, 2010)
SEN. DIANNE FEINSTEIN (D-CA): What is the likelihood of another terrorist attempted attack on the U.S. homeland in the next three to six months, high or low? Director Blair:
MR. DENNIS BLAIR: An attempted attack, the priority is certain, I would say.]
MR. GREGORY: First off, what can you say about the intelligence that's behind such a specific warning like that?
MR. GREGORY: And how do you win against a threat like this, when CIA Director Panetta was saying that al-Qaeda is adapting its methods in ways that are oftentimes very difficult to detect?
MR. GREGORY: Any credible threats against the Super Bowl today?
MR. GREGORY: What, what kinds of attacks is al-Qaeda now interested in pulling off?
MR. GREGORY: How worried are you about sleeper cells in the United States trying to pull off lower level, you know, what in the terrorist world they may call a single rather than a home run, whether it's attacking a shopping mall or this kind of attack?Gregory then presumably broke for a word from NBC's sponsors: Depends and Lockheed-Martin.
