This morning on American Morning, Michael Scheuer, Fmr. CIA counterterrorism analyst, weighs in on the Transportation Security Administration sending six inspectors to Yemen to help improve cargo security.
Scheuer, who headed CIA's Osama Bin Laden unit, talks about al Qaeda's growing force in Yemen and what the United States and its allies can do to increase security on passenger and cargo travel.
Scheuer says terrorism forces have geographically expanded since 9/11.
“In 9/11 we had the enemy coming at us out of Pakistan and Afghanistan,” Scheuer said today on American Morning. “Now we have that theater, have Yemen, have Somalia, have Iraq and have North Africa. So the geographical dispersion of the enemy has increased very significantly in the last ten years.”
Scheuer says billions more dollars will need to be spent on counter terrorism.
How do you think the U.S. is doing on its counter-terrorism efforts?
