Attorney General nominee Merrick Garland said Monday the prospect for foreign terrorist attack remains a top priority, particularly on the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

Garland told Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., he didn’t know whether Al-Qaeda or the Islamic State would attempt an attack. But Garland said that he was arriving at his office when the first plane hit the World Trade Center and could see from his office the smoke rising at the Pentagon.

“Of all the other things that the Justice Department has to do, it must always keep its eye on the ball with respect to foreign terrorist attack,” Garland said. “I can assure you this is top of mind for me.”
