Terror Expert Says We'll Win

As the violence continues in the Middle East, many Americans are wondering, will there ever be an end to the attacks? Attorney and author John Loftus spoke at the Jewish Educational Alliance last night about the war on terror. He believes the worst of the attacks may soon be over. He says terrorist cells as we know them today are fading away.

"I think we are going to win the war against terrorism," he said. "We're going to take away the asylum and we're going to take away the funding. You're never going to change people's minds, not for another generation, but all you'll have left is a few thousand disgruntled people getting around their marketplaces without the funding or the national support to create an international wave of terror."

Loftus once worked as a justice department prosecutor, with access to top secret files from NATA and the CIA. His book, Prophets of Terror, will be released soon.
