Addressing the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence on February 2, 2006, Director of National Intelligence John Negroponte said: " 'Let me begin…with a straightforward statement of preoccupation shared by all of us sitting here before you: terrorism is the preeminent threat to our citizens, Homeland, interests, and friends. The War on Terror is our first priority and driving concern.' "
