The FBI says suicide bombings are "inevitable" in the United States. "I think we will see [suicide bombers] in the future, I think it's inevitable," FBI Director Robert Mueller said. Mueller predicted, "There will be another terrorist attack. We will not be able to stop it. It's something we all live with." Homeland Security Director Tom Ridge urged U.S. citizens to be on guard after an FBI warning that terrorists might rent apartments in high-rise apartment buildings, and pack them with explosives to bring the buildings down. Vice President Cheney said, "In my opinion, the prospects of a future attack against the United States are almost certain...not a matter of if, but when...We don't know if it's going to be tomorrow or next week or next year..."
