April 12, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Frank Wolf [R-VA] introduced legislation today to create a panel of outside experts - fresh eyes - to help develop new strategies to combat the violent Islamic jihad as well as its stealth component.
Wolf has been well ahead of the curve on such matters; he was instrumental in creating the 1998 National Commission on Terrorism.
The "Team B" approach, has proven successful in the past. The process refers to a group of outside experts commissioned by George Herbert Walker Bush when he was Director of the CIA in the 1970s which eventually resulted in policies being established which eventually resulted in the defeat of the Soviet Union.
About the proposal Mr. Wolf states, "Today, our intelligence community and federal law enforcement are so inundated with reports and investigations that they do not have the time or capacity to step back and strategically reevaluate the threat before us...The Team B concept has been successful...and I believe the time has come to employ that strategy again."
Lead sponsors of the bill include Rep. Sue Myrick (R-NC) and Rep. Peter King (R-NY), chairman of the Homeland Security Committee.
