In his opening statement at a House Homeland Security hearing on the Boston Marathon terror attack, committee Chairman Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas) said that the “radical jihad movement is alive and well” and warned that “you cannot defeat an enemy you refuse to acknowledge.”

“From the attack at Fort Hood, to the tragedy at Benghazi, the Boston bombings are our most recent reminder that we must call terrorism what it is, in order to confront it,” McCaul said. “You cannot defeat an enemy you refuse to acknowledge.”
