COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Reuters) - It is "only a matter of time" before militants try to launch a seaborne attack on the United States, but threats
of terrorism are greater abroad because they are avoiding hardened U.S. targets, a senior U.S. military official said on Wednesday.
General Ralph "Ed" Eberhart, who as . of the U.S. Northern Command (NORTHCOM) is responsible for defending U.S. land, sea and air, also said
North Korea posed the greatest threat to the United States of any country -- as opposed to non-state actors such as al Qaeda -- even as Washington
tries to negotiate with Pyongyang.
