The probability that the U.S. will be hit with a weapons of mass destruction attack at some point is 100 percent, Dr. Vahid Majidi, the FBI’s assistant director in charge of the FBI’s Weapons of Mass Destruction Directorate, tells Newsmax.
Unless Dr. Vahid Majidi is planning on doing it himself, he can't statistically claim 100 percent likelihood. He can claim "near certainty" or "99.99% likely", but no future event is 100 percent guaranteed to happen. One hundred percent is for things that are currently happening or have happened in the past.
I know someone will say "100 percent chance that the sun will come up tomorrow", but there are a lot of factors that could prevent that, like the sun exploding, or the Earth being destroyed in a cataclysm. They are so incredibly unlikely that the odds are ALMOST 100 percent, but, statistically, never quite there.

Well that's just great.
If we are going to be attacked with a WMD 100% then can I have my freedoms and Constitution back?
I thought we traded them for security. It was a fair trade. Now they're not living up to their end of the agreement.
I'm still not afraid, nice try guys.
The CIA is going to have to actually blow up and level an entire city before I even begin to take them seriously.
Come on boys, we aren't buying it anymore.
This is sooo sad once you see through all of this B.S.
