US Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly has admitted he has no idea how to stop homegrown terrorists, despite acknowledging it is the “most common” threat facing the US. Kelly said the threat of an airplane terror attack keeps him “awake at night,” and that it would be like the “Super Bowl” for terrorists.

Kelly appeared on CBS’s Face the Nation on Sunday and was asked what the US could learn from the police shooting in Paris last week, which was claimed by ISIS.

He also said the threat against aviation “keeps me literally awake at night.”

“We know that would be the Super Bowl for the terrorists to knock down an airplane in flight, particularly if it was full of Americans,” he said.

“There are so many aspects to this terrorist thing,” Kelly said. “Obviously you got the homegrown terrorists. I don’t know how to stop that. I don’t know how to detect that. You got other terrorist threats that come across the border.”

“I believe in the case of the murder — in the Paris shooting I believe he was homegrown,” Kelly continued. “But, again, there are so many threats that come in from across border. And it’s essential absolutely to control one’s border.”

The show’s presenter pressed Kelly on the issue, “If that’s [homegrown terrorism] the biggest threat, and you don’t know how to stop it, that seems like a big problem?”, Dickerson said.

“It is a big problem,” Kelly agreed in response. “It is — you know, depending on where you sit is where you stand on this, It is a big threat. Is it the number one threat? I think it’s the most common threat.”
