"Make no mistake we will confront all forms of terrorism no matter what ideology inspires it," Sales said.

Asked if any neo-Nazi or white supremacist groups inside the United States had been identified as terrorist organizations, Sales said State Department deferred to the FBI and Department of Homeland Security when it comes to combating domestic terrorism threats.
