Diane Feinstein, D-Cal., chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, speaking at a Capitol Hill news conference in Washington. Sunday in Washington, Aug. 31, 2014, Feinstein said President Barack Obama may be "too cautious" in his approach to dealing with Islamic State militants. Speaking on NBC's "Meet the Press" she said that the Defense and State departments have been putting together a response to the threat, and has seen nothing to compare to the viciousness of the militants who have overrun large portions of Iraq, killed civilians and beheaded American journalist James Foley. Feinstein says the Islamic State group has financing, military structure and weapons unlike any other militants and called them "extraordinarily dangerous."

Joseph Carroll upon his nomination to first director of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA). In the early Cold War years following World War II, the U.S. feared a sudden Soviet invasion and occupation of Alaska, and recruited and trained Alaskan fishermen, bush pilots, trappers and other private citizens for a covert intelligence network in support of military commanders, according to declassified Air Force and FBI documents. FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover teamed up on the secret project, code-named "Washtub", with the newly created Air Force Office of Special Investigations, first headed by then Hoover protege and former FBI official Joseph Carroll. This was not civil defense of the sort that became common later in the Cold War as Americans built their own bomb shelters. This was an extraordinary enlistment of civilians as intelligence operatives on U.S. soil.
