New White House Strategy To Hit Violent Extremism

WASHINGTON (AP)- The White House is releasing its national strategy to counter violent extremism, an eight-page document that outlines in broad strokes the approach the country must take to prevent homegrown terrorist attacks.

It took more than a year for the administration to come up with the plan, obtained by The Associated Press.

The strategy being released today is short on specifics but pledges the federal government's support of local communities around the country so they can come up with solutions specific to their own problems with violent extremists. It references the nation's community-based approach to countering criminal gangs as a guide to combating violent extremism.

Though the Obama administration says al-Qaida poses the largest threat to the U.S., the strategy generally addresses violent extremism in all forms.
