The actions that we take on the counterterrorism front, again, are to take actions against individuals where we believe that the intelligence base is so strong and the nature of the threat is so grave and serious, as well as imminent, that we have no recourse except to take this action that may involve a lethal strike.  (John O Brennan Quotes) In full accordance with the law - and in order to prevent terrorist attacks on the United States and to save American lives - the United States government conducts targeted strikes against specific al-Qa’ida terrorists, sometimes using remotely piloted aircraft, often referred to publicly as drones.  (John O Brennan Quotes) Any American who joins al Qaeda will know full well that they have joined an organization that is at war with the United States. Any American who did that should know well that they in fact are part of an enemy... and that the U.S. will do anything that is possible to destroy that enemy to save American lives.  (John O Brennan Quotes) The president’s priority is to protect the safety and security of the American people. That’s the physical security of the American people as well as the prosperity of the American people.  (John O Brennan Quotes) As we’ve seen, deploying large armies abroad won’t always be our best offense. Countries typically don’t want foreign soldiers in their cities and towns.  (John O Brennan Quotes) Our democratic values also include - and our national security demands - open and transparent government. Some information obviously needs to be protected. And since his first days in office, President Obama has worked to strike the proper balance between the security the American people deserve and the openness our democratic society expects.  (John O Brennan Quotes) The whole technological revolution and evolution gives man tremendous capabilities for good, and it also gives individuals tremendous capability to carry out what result in lethal action.  (John O Brennan Quotes) The misunderstandings - or, what really bothers me are the intentional misrepresentations of the facts, which take place on a fairly regular basis. To think that we, people who are involved in counterterrorism, do not care about civilian casualties or deaths or injuries, is just totally, totally wrong.  (John O Brennan Quotes) We need to make sure that leaks of classified information, of national security secrets, needs to be rigorously pursued and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.  (John O Brennan Quotes) Simply stated, the need for accurate intelligence and prescient analysis from CIA has never been greater than it is in 2013 - or than it will be in the coming years.  (John O Brennan Quotes) You know, President Obama feels very strongly that the government has a responsibility to engage with the American people, as well as with the world community.  (John O Brennan Quotes) U.S. computer networks and databases are under daily cyber attack by nation states, international crime organizations, subnational groups, and individual hackers.  (John O Brennan Quotes) Obviously, the death of Usama Bin Laden marked a strategic milestone in our effort to defeat al-Qa’ida. Unfortunately, Bin Laden’s death, and the death and capture of many other al-Qa’ida leaders and operatives, does not mark the end of that terrorist organization or its efforts to attack the United States and other countries.  (John O Brennan Quotes) Where terrorists offer injustice, disorder and destruction, the United States and its allies stand for freedom, fairness, equality, hope, and opportunity.  (John O Brennan Quotes) We will never abdicate the security of the United States to a foreign country or refrain from taking action when appropriate. But we cannot ignore the reality that cooperative counterterrorism activities are a key to our national defense.  (John O Brennan Quotes) Is real, it is serious, it is growing, and it constitutes one of the greatest threats to our national security and, indeed, to global security.  (John O Brennan Quotes) The United States does not view our authority to use military force against Al Qaeda as being restricted solely to ‘hot’ battlefields like Afghanistan.  (John O Brennan Quotes) The United States is the first nation to regularly conduct strikes using remotely piloted aircraft in an armed conflict. Other nations also possess this technology. Many more nations are seeking it, and more will succeed in acquiring it  (John O Brennan Quotes) Al-Qa’ida does not follow a traditional command structure, wear uniforms, carry its arms openly, or mass its troops at the borders of the nations it attacks. Nonetheless, it possesses the demonstrated capability to strike with little notice and cause significant civilian or military casualties  (John O Brennan Quotes) How you define a problem shapes how you address it  (John O Brennan Quotes) Is real, it is serious, it is growing, and it constitutes one of the greatest threats to our national security and, indeed, to global security  (John O Brennan Quotes) I have a reputation for speaking my mind. I like to think my candor and bluntness will give you the answers  (John O Brennan Quotes) The risk of just one terrorist with just one nuclear weapon is a risk we simply cannot afford to take  (John O Brennan Quotes) Yes, war is hell. It is awful. It involves human beings killing other human beings, sometimes innocent civilians. That is why we despise war  (John O Brennan Quotes) We need to make sure that leaks of classified information, of national security secrets, needs to be rigorously pursued and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law  (John O Brennan Quotes) Where terrorists offer injustice, disorder and destruction, the United States and its allies stand for freedom, fairness, equality, hope, and opportunity  (John O Brennan Quotes) We will use all lawful tools at our disposal, and that includes authorities under the renewed PATRIOT Act. We firmly believe that our intelligence gathering tools must enable us to collect the information we need to protect the American people  (John O Brennan Quotes) A lot of things look good on an academic’s blackboard in terms of the actions that need to be taken. It’s almost like a football coach, when you draw the X’s and O’s: Every play that is chalked on that board goes for a touchdown. Well, there are a lot of yards to be made between the line of scrimmage and the touchdown  (John O Brennan Quotes) Unfortunately, in war, there are casualties, including among the civilian population  (John O Brennan Quotes) Poverty does not cause violence and terrorism. Lack of education does not cause terrorism  (John O Brennan Quotes)
