White House Officials Meeting with Tech Leaders on Terrorism

Senior Obama administration officials will hold high-level discussions with Silicon Valley CEOs to talk about whether social-media firms can do more to prevent terrorists from using their services to recruit and incite violence, according to people familiar with the planned summit. Some of the most important officials in the U.S. government, including Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey, White House chief of staff Denis McDonough and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper plan to take part in the meeting, though it wasn’t immediately clear how many of those people will fly out to northern California to meet the CEOs in person, or how many will join instead by teleconference, according to people familiar with the planning.
