Though we are more aware of the existence of terrorist threats, there are significant vulnerabilities in our national defense.
One uncovered plot in Modesto, California, illustrates the danger. "There's a group of guys who got radicalized in prison," Peter says. "Some alleged that they were planning to attack U.S. military bases. They had weapons, they had a plan, they were going to attack synagogues. This seems to me like a pretty serious domestic terrorist cell."
Peter's experience in covering terrorism has led him to past predictions. "I was extremely concerned in the summer of 2001 that an attack was going to happen," Peter says. "So much information was flooding in about their desire to attack us around the world." Because of that, he says, "I knew that it was bin Laden as soon as the second plane hit."
