The Department of Justice has created a new position, the Domestic Terrorism Counsel, which will coordinate investigations into domestic extremists; those who harbor anti-government or racist views.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department is creating a new position to coordinate investigations into violent homegrown extremism, a department official said Wednesday.
Assistant Attorney General John Carlin, head of the department’s national security division, said that while the international terror threat occupies the public attention, federal officials remain just as concerned about the prospect of violence from Americans motivated by anti-government views and racist ideologies.
“We need to make sure we have the mechanisms in place so that we can continue to remain just as focused on the domestic terrorism threat while addressing the international terrorism threat,” Carlin said in a question-and-answer session after a George Washington University speech.
