The same man
  • who was a director of the Council on Foreign Relations between 1987 and 1989,
  • who was Secretary of Defense in the first Bush Presidency (directing the invasion of Panama and the first "Gulf War" in Iraq),
  • who as Vice President was by some accounts the "power behind the throne" of the second Bush Presidency,
  • who as Vice President, along with his long time associate Donald Rumsfeld, then Secretary of Defense, directed the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, instituted the War on Terror, and by some accounts directed key events of 9/11 itself,
  • who was part of the Project for a New American Century (PNAC) that in Sept 2000 anticipated a "new Pearl Harbor", a year before 9/11, and
  • who is now founder of The Alliance for a Strong America

has now predicted "another attack ... far deadlier than the last one."

On the Hugh Hewitt Show, on Tuesday, June 24, 2014 (almost two months ago as I write this), the following dialog occurred between Hugh Hewitt and former Vice President Dick Cheney:

Hewitt: Do you think we get through this decade without a massive attack on the homeland?

Cheney: I doubt it. I doubt it. I think there will be another attack. And next time, I think it's likely to be far deadlier than the last one. You can just imagine what would happen…

Hewitt: Yeah.

Cheney: …if somebody could smuggle a nuclear device, put it in a shipping container, and drive it down the Beltway outside of Washington, D.C.

Hewitt: And do you, by the way, if that were to happen, do you see the government reconstituting? Because it would have to be military rule for a period of time at least.

Cheney: Well, there was, some years ago, a program called the continuity of government program. It was part of the Cold War strategy that we pursued here, and basically it involved having a government waiting, if you will, ready to go in the event of a nuclear attack on the United States, so that we could always maintain the Constitutional base of governmental authority. I was part of that program for several years, and a lot of it, I'm sure, is probably still classified. But it was very, very important, and we operated and actually trained under circumstances of how would we go about making, providing for a government to survive if you know, we're having nuclear weapons from the Soviet Union falling all over the country.
Here's a 1 minute 26 second audio clip of the above:

He says "I think there will be another attack", but he should have said "I know there will be another attack, because we are planning it!" With the current US/Mexico open boarders, its really easy to get a nuke to Washington DC now isn't it Dick?
