Why is one expert concerned we could soon see a terrorist attack on U.S. soil?

Brad Thor is a bestselling author who writes gripping political thrillers that seem to be ripped right out of the headlines. His latest book, Act of War, considers what would happen if a foreign nation implemented a plan to overthrow the United States. Because of his expertise, Thor has served as a member of the Department of Homeland Security’s Analytic Red Cell Unit, and he spoke to Glenn this morning about the danger of the current turmoil.

Given all that is going on the world today, Glenn was “afraid to ask” the premise of Thor’s latest thriller. Thor did little to ease fears when he described the book as one of the “most chilling” he has ever written.

“[F]or my thriller Act of War, I discuss a scenario where the White House would know about a terrorist attack, but not where or when it was going to happen. They would be forced way out onto a limb and they would have to launch two covert operations that, if discovered, would constitute acts of war by the United States,” Thor explained. “This would all be an effort to head off an attack at home. This is probably one of the most chilling potential scenarios I have ever, ever had anyone in the special operations or intelligence community share with me, and that’s what I based my new thriller Act of War on.”

Thor has had an opportunity to consult and work with some of the brightest minds in the intelligence community, and, much like Glenn, he is a student of history. Looking at the current state of the U.S. economy, the situation at the border, and the violence in the Middle East, Thor is quite concerned about what lies ahead.

“Where do you think we go from here,” Glenn asked.

“I’m very fearful that we could see some sort of terrorist attack in the United States. That’s the way I’m wired. I’m wired to look for that stuff. That’s what I have done as part of the Red Cell Unit,” Thor said. “I’m concerned. We project a lot of weakness around the world. There’s no domestic policy. There’s no foreign policy. We are now on the ‘run out the clock phase’ with our President.”

The United States also faces an internal threat. We know that a house divided against itself cannot stand, and until there is a palpable desire to right the wrongs, Thor believes the country is in trouble.

“I also believe, contrary to our President, that we are an exceptional nation… I think we have that power to right the course we are on, and I have a tremendous amount of confidence that 2014 and 2016 is going to be a return to responsible governance,” Thor concluded. “We are going to put people in office who are going to make a difference because guess what: If we don’t do it in these next two cycles, we are in for a long, dark age in the United States.”

    LDS is similar to Amway. It’s a great way to sell things to members if you belong to either organization. Ask Brad.

    ‘When’, not ‘if’ … and… it won’t matter if of foreign or domestic origin… the ‘authoritarian’ trap as designed by the ‘progressive’ movement will close… with the declaration of a National Emergency… the imposition of martial law… and the de facto abrogation of The Constitution.

    They have been finding discarded muslim prayer rugs at the borders for years and nobody knows how many of those filthy slime are in here. But amnesty would allow all of them to stay here and be citizens.

    I hate to admit that I think you are correct.

    there’s no doubt in my mind whatsoever that the enemy is already here, waiting for the cards to fall. with our wide open borders, how could they NOT be here? it’s only a matter of time folks, be prepared. there is a serious reason why our government has NOT closed our borders. May God help us if i’m right.

    It’s intentional. I hope we’re both wrong.

    russia is renting use of airports and military bases in foreign countries because it’s faster and cheaper then building their own, it also doesn’t attract attention. those rentals are in direct paths to our east coast, gulf coast and southern border. through africa, central and south america. both russia and china are working with african, central and south american socialist countries as is iran. several terrorist groups are also setting up shop working with governments and drug cartels. this is why russia and china are supporting terrorist groups and middle eastern countries to keep us busy overseas, keeping our military away from home. obama and the democrats are in on it, also helping them with the border crisis of allowing them to be released into our communities and keeping our border patrol changing diapers and transporting illegals all across the country and not patrolling the borders. we are being set up!

    It’s not just one expert concerned about a terrorist attack! Many experts and Americans are concerned. Security efforts have already been stepped up. I’m not sure why this expert thinks we project weakness when we’ve killed and captured an incredible number of terrorist leaders under Obama. He has been very aggressive with drone strikes and spec ops.

    The turmoil that the world is in today because of Muslim terrorists reminds me what caused the fall of the great Roman empire – an attack from a horde without assisted within by the apathy and moral decay of their citizens.
    Today Western countries now have that same threat having turned their backs on God and His 10 commandments on how to build healthy , moral life styles stressing the importance of family . We have now lost our moral compass to the detriment of the younger generation resulting in this age of violence, broken homes and corruptness in both political leadership and the justice system.
