Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly told CBS’s Face the Nation Sunday that the terrorism threat to airliners worries him the most.

“The other thing, John, that keeps me literally awake at night is the threat against aviation,” Kelly said.

Kelly called a possible attack on an airliner “the Super Bowl” for terrorist organizations, “particularly if it was full of Americans.”

“We have taken measures overseas to reduce that threat, but it’s something I watch every day,” Kelly said.

“There are a number of plots we’re watching very, very closely,” he added. “They’re very sophisticated. They’re very threatening.”
