  3. Alec Baldwin:

    Here I am, staying in a fancy hotel, going out to dinner with my friends, hanging out, and we're doing our best to disseminate some information, but I'm on one end of the spectrum, and this is all new to me, i've done a lot of environmental work back home related to climate change. I've tried to be as big of a rock in (their) shoe as I can to the oil industry and the nuclear industry. I'm heavy-heavy coming down on extractive industries in the United States and abroad. But the plight of indigenous people -- which is why we're here -- I hadn't thought about this until now. I had no idea who Diana Rios was or who her father was -- and the guy was killed by hit men for illegal logging obligations.

  4. John Brennan:

    New technologies can help groups like ISIL coordinate operations, attract new recruits, disseminate propaganda, and inspire sympathizers across the globe to act in their name, the overall threat of terrorism is greatly amplified by today’s interconnected world, where an incident in one corner of the globe can instantly spark a reaction thousands of miles away; and where a lone extremist can go online and learn how to carry out an attack without ever leaving home.

  5. Daniel Bible:

    A man was detained shortly after the shooting but was released after authorities determined he was not connected to the incident. ICE did not respond to a Fox News request for comment Tuesday. Daniel Bible, the field office director for the agencys enforcement and removal operations in San Antonio, blamed the shootingon elected officials, the media and activists for a breakdown inpolitical discourse that has encouraged violent acts. Political rhetoric and misinformation that various politicians, media outlets and activist groups recklessly disseminate to the American people regarding the ICE mission only serve to further encourage these violent acts, iCE officers put their lives on the line each and every day to keep our communities safe. This disturbing public discourse shrouds our critical law enforcement function and unnecessarily puts our officers safety at risk.
