Homeland Security Secretary
full articleOne of the biggest threats to US security may now come from within Europe, US Homeland Security head Michael Chertoff has told the BBC.
He said militant attacks and plots in Europe over recent years had made the US aware of the "real risk that Europe will become a platform for terrorists".
Mr Chertoff said it was likely security checks on travelers from Europe would be increased.
But he said steps would be taken to ensure travel and trade were not hit.
In the interview on the BBC's World News America, Mr Chertoff said he had seen "home-grown terrorism begin to rise in Europe".
I just want to know what Europeans think of these statements coming from the US Homeland Security Secretary.
Is Europe really this bad?
USA should fear, that terrorists might immigrate to USA from Europe?
