The spokesman went on to state the obvious but in a way that implied your life might very well be at risk:
"Issues that were once local, national or regional are now global. Whereas 20 years ago the terrorism threat came from the IRA, and the nuclear threat came from the Soviet Union, now we face a loose affiliation of terror groups and networks spanning the globe and we also see how failed states such as Afghanistan and regional tensions such as those in the Middle East affect our national security."
I think you possibly have to say "loose affiliation of terror groups and networks spanning the globe" in a deep throaty rumble as if you were that guy who does all the movie trailers. In fact if you preface the whole quote with "In a world where", I think you have the pitch for Alias.
