9/11 type attack 'virtually impossible' says US security chief
Text size Aa Aa

US Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says that despite constant threats against the United States a 9/11-type assault is “virtually impossible”.

Napolitano has been in Europe this week to discuss security issues with a number of EU states.

In an exclusive interview with euronews she spoke about the work of the various government agencies to keep the US safe.

“I think the events that led to 9/11 with the current procedures and practices that we have in place now – not just within DHS but with the FBI and others – it would be virtually impossible to have a replication of 9/11. That’s not to say we couldn’t have another of style or another type of attack.”
