Rep. Adam Schiff says sniper attack on California electric station ‘of great concern’

February 10, 2014

Capitol Hill lawmakers said Sunday a planned sniper attack on a remote California power station was of grave concern, repeating similar responses about the strike and suggesting changes in the ways the United States protects it power grid.

Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., suggested the country has recently focused too much on cyber attacks.

“Perhaps we’ve taken our eye off the ball,” he told “Fox News Sunday.”

Schiff’s comments follow revelations last week about the 2013 sniper attack on the electrical substation in San Jose that lasted 52 minutes and knocked out 17 transformers.

“It was a sophisticated attack,” said Schiff, who serves on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, which has oversight on homeland security and energy issues. “I hope this wasn’t a dry run, but this is of great concern.”
