The House Homeland Security Committee held a hearing on the threat of domestic terrorism in the wake of the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. The witnesses testified on how extremism and conspiracy theories on social media can radicalize individuals who already feel marginalized, and how similar rhetoric mirrored by political leaders and media personalities can exacerbate the problem. They also talked about how the law enforcement posture at the Capitol appeared to reflect a failure in planning and response, rather than an intelligence failure given the myriad warning signs that were readily apparent on social media platforms. Committee members voiced support for a 9/11-style commission to examine the attack and the factors that led to it. Washington, D.C., Homeland Security and Emergency Management Director Christopher Rodriguez, former Assistant Homeland Security Secretary Elizabeth Neumann, the CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, and a RAND Corporation senior adviser testified. close
