NATO is increasing the number of fighter jets and surveillance aircraft supporting U.S. allies in Eastern Europe, but some Republicans remain critical of the Obama administration for not taking a more proactive posture toward what they describe as Russian war-gaming in the region.
The government system that provided Washington Navy Yard gunman Aaron Alexis a "secret" security clearance has been beset by problems.
Recent congressional testimony confirmed North Korea's development of a new long-range, road-mobile missile that can reach American shores, increasing the threat of a nuclear attack on the United States.
The Obama administration is set to offer more concessions to the Russians on missile defense, the latest one a proposal to share secret technical data on the U.S. military's most effective anti-missile interceptor.
Mr. Turner added that while Ukraine is not a NATO member, they should be treated like one.
Mr. Turner had asserted in a statement that he and other officials believed Moscow had engaged in a "buildup of up to 80,000" troops along the Russia-Ukraine border.
