Posted October 16, 2014 at 5:10am

Executive Gov reports that “Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson has called for closer cooperation between his department and the U.S. Army to counter threats and address public concerns through fact-based dialogue and messaging, DoD News reported Tuesday.”  

“Jim Garamone writes Johnson noted the need to align efforts, particularly in counterterrorism, as threats evolve and terrorists utilize technology to recruit fighters and spread their message.”  

“'[A] phenomenon we’re seeing among terrorist organizations is a very adept use of social media,’ Johnson told his audience at an Association of the United States Army conference this week.”
