Homeland Secy. tells CNN's Wolf Blitzer the recent security risks at the White House are, " a series of troubling events"

Washington (CNN) - The militant group ISIS represents a "very significant potential threat to homeland security," and officials have a "good sense" of the individuals from the United States who are trying to travel to Syria and fight with the terrorist group, the secretary of Homeland Security said Monday on CNN.

"They are a dangerous organization that has acquired territory in Iraq and Syria from which they could launch attacks, train, command and control," Jeh Johnson said on "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer."

Blitzer also asked Secy. Johnson about the recent security risks at the White House.  Blitzer questioned, "How could this happen, Mr. Secretary?" Johnson replied,"Well, that's what I’d like to know.  Director Pearson of the Secret Service has ordered, a security review which she will submit to me.  The Secret Service is part of the Department of Homeland Security.  I look forward to the findings and recommendations.  I'm going to wait till the facts are in before I draw any conclusions.  This is clearly, however, a series of troubling events." A full transcript of the program will be posted on http://archives.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/sitroom.html.

National Security Advisor Susan Rice responds to James Foley's mother

National Security Advisor Susan Rice responds to James Foley's mother, Diane Foley, on The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer:

"Well, Wolf, I've gotten to know Diane Foley well. And she and I have met on a number of occasions when I was ambassador in New York and here in Washington at the White House. She's an extraordinary woman. She did an job on behalf of her family and with her husband and - and other children, to do everything possible, leave no stone unturned to try to bring Jim home safely.

 We're all heartbroken that there was not possible. But I and others in the U.S. government worked very hard with Diane Foley and her family to try to be supportive, to try to provide what information we could. And, of course, as you know, the president ordered a very daring and very well-executed rescue operation when - on the only occasion we had what we thought was fresh and we hoped actionable intelligence about the whereabouts of Jim Foley and the other hostages.

Unfortunately, they were no longer there. But I think that effort, which involved hundreds of American personnel in a very sophisticated effort, underscores the importance that we attach to doing everything we possibly can to bring Americans in captivity back home."
