FBI Official Predicts Major Terrorist Attacks Directed Against U.S.A.
According to a report by the Reuters News service, FBI officials yesterday said that during the past year they are in receipt of more than 250 threats involving the use of Chemical, Biological, or Nuclear weapons and directed against U.S. targets at home and abroad.
"We predict one major terrorist attack against U.S. interests overseas, one per year for the next five years, Assistant Director Dale Watson of the FBI Counter-terrorism Division told a National Governors Association conference on Wednesday. "I'm not a gloom-and-doom type person, but I will tell you this, what I see and what most smart people see, the United States is headed for a (weapons of mass destruction) incident inside the United States," he said.
