Arkansas' Crawford named to House Intelligence Committee

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) – An Arkansas congressman has been named to the House

Intelligence Committee.

Rep. Rick Crawford announced Friday he had been selected by House Speaker Paul

Ryan to join the panel, which was formed in 1977 to oversee issues within the

nation’s intelligence community. The Republican said after his selection that

the national security community has to evolve as threats against the U.S.


The chairman of the committee, Rep. Devin Nunes of California, welcomed

Crawford and others to the panel, saying the country faces a “complex threat

matrix” ranging from jihadists to nuclear proliferation.
