ISIL’s greatest threat to the West comes from the thousands of Western foreign fighters that have joined its ranks — a number that, according to Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, includes more than one hundred Americans. Mr. Eisenberg, the Assistant United States Attorney (AUSA) for the District of Maryland and Coordinator of the Anti-Terrorism Advisory Council of Maryland, will discuss the multifaceted challenges local, state, and federal law enforcement organizations face — and the need for inter-agency cooperation and coordination — in their attempts to protect the United States and American people from ISIL.
