U.S. military officials said on the 17th that they were worried that security personnel at the presidential inauguration would launch “internal attacks”, so the investigation agencies are conducting security checks on the relevant personnel.
U.S. Secretary of the Army Ryan McCarthy said on the 17th that as the presidential inauguration approached, the U.S. military was aware of possible internal threats.
McCarthy said he had asked all commanders to pay close attention to any problems within his unit. At the same time, he said that the security personnel involved in the inauguration ceremony also conducted relevant training to identify internal threats.
At present, the FBI is reviewing 25,000 National Guard soldiers involved in security work.
The number of National Guards participating in the presidential inauguration has reportedly reached 2.5 times that of the past, and the FBI’s participation in security review is unprecedented.
According to U.S. media reports, there is evidence that the impact on Congress on the 6th involved active-duty soldiers and law enforcement personnel.
Therefore, for the upcoming presidential inauguration, internal threats from security personnel have aroused concerns of U.S. officials.
