Boothe: since 9/11 lone wolf terrorists are hardest to find

The 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks comes just months after the death of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. Another top leader has since been killed and longtime CIA senior officer Larry Boothe believes al Qaeda may be off-balance. On KVNU’s Crosstalk show Friday, Boothe said his main concern is the terrorists who act alone, such as Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan who killed 10 soldiers who were waiting to be deployed to Afghanistan from Fort Hood. “This is called the Lone Wolf Terrorist and they’re the hardest to find,” Boothe explained. “They’re the hardest to track and they’re the hardest to defeat because you don’t know who they are, you don’t know where they are and you don’t know when they’re going to do anything and you don’t have any indication of that happening. “There’s been a lot of pressure put on people in the nation the last couple of years to be more observant of what’s going on around them. Quite frankly that’s the only way you’re going to catch someone like Hasan.” Boothe says, fortunately, he feels that people have been more observant and, in fact, almost 150 operations have been attempted against the nation that have actually been stopped.
