- The U.S. Army and U.S. intelligence are working together to figure out which troops attending President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration require additional background checks, an Army spokesman told Insider.
- The move, first reported by the Army Times, follows a request from Colorado Rep. Jason Crow, a former Army ranger, for a review of initiation forces to eradicate those sympathetic to local terrorists. This is how people who stormed the Capitol last week were described.
- The Army spokesman also said the DC National Guard is offering additional training on reporting known or suspected extremist behavior to troops entering the nation’s capital.
