In the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks, the National Counterterrorism Center was created to identify and stop terror threats to the U.S.

  • Christine Abizaid, director of the National Counterterrorism Center, said that currently, terrorism is not the driving force of national security in the U.S.
  • Abizaid credits the success of the mission to kill Ayman al-Zawahiri to the collaborative nature of the National Counterterrorism Center.
  • Al-Qaida and ISIS still pose a risk to the U.S., according to Abizaid, and the intelligence community is constantly monitoring for where the threats may come from.
  • The National Counterterrorism Center works with the FBI, Department of Justice and Department of Homeland Security to support them in their efforts to combat domestic terrorism.
