Specifically, the hearing assessed the mission, operations and impact of the State Department’s Center for Strategic Counterterrorism Communications.

The Center for Strategic Counterterrorism Communications was established in September 2010 in order to coordinate, orient and inform government-wide public communications activities directed at audiences abroad and targeted at violent extremists and terrorists organizations, especially al-Qaida.
