As federal and local law enforcement plan to boost their communications with Jewish groups in the United States, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano on Wednesday told a House panel she is “concerned” over potential threats to the U.S. homeland from Iran or its surrogates and it’s “a situation that bears watching.”
Napolitano said her department is “conducting a lot of outreach” to Jewish communities across the country to address any concerns after car bombs in two countries overseas targeted Israeli officials and Iranian nationals set off explosions in Thailand.
