As the 13th anniversary of the September 11th attacks approaches, there are no specific threats against Washington or New York, but authorities are concerned about the rising power of militant groups around the world, which presents a complex terrorism picture. New York and Washington are still the top terrorist targets but U.S. intelligence officials recognize that the rest of the country is just a vulnerable.
Terrorism experts Christopher Harmon and Michael Kraft will discuss what the federal government is doing to fight terrorism around the world, and Linda Rix, co-CEO of FastYeti Incorporated will talk about her new website vetsHQ.com.

The Homeland Security Department will channel its efforts into battling terrorism, cyber threats and natural disasters, according to a quadrennial review the agency released Wednesday.
Former First Lady and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton defended her response to the deadly 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, writing in her new book that she will "not be part of a political slugfest on the backs of dead Americans." She continues, "Those who exploit this tragedy over and over as a political tool minimize the sacrifice of those who served our country."
The terror group that kidnapped 276 schoolgirls last month gunned down a traditional Muslim emir in an attack on a convoy in northeastern Nigeria on Friday, according to the government in Borno state. The Emir of Gwoza, Alhaji Idrissa Timta, was travelling with the Emirs of Uba and Askira to a attend a funeral when the suspected Islamist gunmen opened fire on their car in Zhura, a remote community in Borno state.
The Pentagon is using drones to help search in northeastern Nigeria for school girls kidnapped by the terror group Boko Haram, although they will not call them drones. Pentagon spokesman Colonel Steve Warren explains, "as a general rule we don't discuss our use of unmanned aircraft." He indicates there are security concerns, continuing, "there are sensitivities surrounding where they are based out of." Warren says they are being used to collect intelligence and conduct surveillance.
We are getting a clearer picture of how much help the U.S. is giving Nigeria to help in the search for almost 300 school girls kidnapped by terror group Boko Haram. The Pentagon says 16 DoD personnel are a part of a government-wide team of 30. The team includes planners and advisers already in Nigeria that have been redirected to assist the government. France, Benin, Chad, Cameroon and Niger, as well as representatives of Britain and the EU are all helping in the search.
Mark Schroeder, vice president of Africa analysis at Strator, will discuss the rise of the Boko Haram terrorist group in Nigeria.
