Dick Cheney is back, and he will not rest until every American has developed a national securityrelated anxiety disorder. When asked on the Hugh Hewitt radio show if the United States can get through the decade without another attack on the homeland, Cheney said, "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," he said, describing one terrifying scenario: "Imagine what would happen if somebody could smuggle a nuclear device, put it in a shipping container and drive it down the Beltway outside Washington D.C." No thanks — we like sleeping at night.
