Former CIA Director James Woolsey warned that while al Qaeda is much weaker today than it was 11 years ago, other terrorist groups possess the capability to devastate America.
Woolsey recently spoke with CBN News about Israel, Iran, and the likelihood of another terrorist attack against the United States.
He said al Qaeda is weakening because of America's war on terror, but he believes Hezbollah is a much stronger group and a more capable threat.
Hezbollah is well funded and has the intellect and ability to wreak havoc in the United States.
Woolsey also explained that, while terrorists love making the big hits against well-known American symbols like the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, cyber terrorism is the greater threat to America in the future.
He expressed concern over a possible attack against America's electrical grid, which would also endanger water and food supply.
Woolsey said a cyber attack against the electrical grid would not just take the United States back to the pre-Internet days of the 1970s, but back to 1879 -- an era when America functioned without electricity and was forced to use hand water pumps and horses instead of tractors and automobiles.
