It's an -- learn from history shame on us.
At the beginning when we're targeting Osama bin Laden indicted him here in new York and 2000 and then 1997.
June of 1998 before they -- African embassy bombings everybody was saying well.
Who the heck -- Qaeda and bin Laden those guys -- in the Middle East they're fighting in Afghanistan and so forth.
But the moment that they -- able to set at training facility that command and control then they gonna start focusing on us.
But fresh warning from former FBI special agent ice upon our guest yesterday we were discussing memory -- with Dolly about a more emboldened group of al-Qaeda in Iraq.
Using Syria as a training ground.
And what we should be watching for what is next -- Syria today.
When does it come home to -- hearing the United States -- daily we hear about different terror groups taking advantage of chaos in the Middle East and Africa.
Beyond the names and the geography what do we need to know about today's generation of terrorists.
By -- is a Fox News Channel Middle East and terrorism analyst author of the coming revolution the struggle for freedom.
In the middle -- of -- you've talked about this for years you who who who are.
This next indeed these new terrorists and how are they different from the ones that we face -- -- 2001.
What generally this is a question of generations -- a fondness that yesterday to a -- TV.
What we are seeing -- now.
Is -- second maybe third generation those who were.
Ten years -- 9/11 or very young -- in the nineties I'm now basically those -- twenties and thirties and involved.
And various actions and it's not just around the world it could also be in the United States what is.
Linking all of these people is in ideology that hole.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Or they think themselves that they can perform the action on behalf of what caught on like some of the lone wolves in the west in Europe and here so.
I've that I've I've had the highest level you have an ideology at the lowest level you have an organization.
Talk about the ideology for a moment here ideology as it has grown up through these generations.
Has it got in more western more extreme.
-- what direction has -- gone.
See the ideology by itself the goals meaning what -- that they want to achieve that goal of the countless faith how many province says.
What to implement within this kind of it has not changed.
Hague the Muslim Brotherhood for example I'm not leading terrorist by our measurement but our -- then.
Since the 1920s they they -- teach the same thing to a hobby is the seller fees all of these.
-- -- the same -- what has changed basically.
It's how to deliver this ideology to the younger generations -- in the past you know around the mosque or around teaching centers now it's the Internet.
Not to say that -- example of that while -- -- mean this is just one example from why the web site.
This is one little boy in according to the website he was speaking about -- done and joined the Palestinians in their fight.
And in the web site point to him is like here's this little boy he's preaching these things.
And saying this is the next you know we're we're not making the link we don't know anything about that little boy that this was one of the the examples with the lord as we were looking at this next generation.
And had a week combat the ideology and that -- -- what what do we do.
Well look first before -- need to define exactly where the threat this coming from.
It is not just coming from bin Laden zawahiri.
And al-Qaeda these are the tip of the iceberg for the multiple -- -- there isn't indoctrination.
Which is actually very complex.
You have it for example in Pakistan and Afghanistan as my -- says those militants schools but you have also of course hasn't cost us caught.
In normal schools in the region and third of course as -- just shown now you have the video Internet and that is very very efficient people on FaceBook on YouTube are becoming jihadist at a younger age.
And one of the reasons we want to talk about this is again we see this isolation we're talking that the Middle East and -- the intricacies of all these different groups that are sometimes connected or not and the terrorism that they're waiting in their communities we have to ask the question about when.
Does that come to -- when do we see the attacks -- certainly -- -- our own embassies but Bo when is it comes here while leading what what do you think.
Look the measurement is very simple the more you see the -- -- widespread in an area and Arizona State for example Libya.
I have been warning about the rise of these solitary Jihad the militias from day one.
From the day they were marching against Qaddafi we were able to project that one day after Gadhafi is down.
They gonna attack our -- actually the cables.
From the Libya consulate to the United States instead department said.
There are many training centers we don't know if we if their intention is that he says well that's what we do we need to educate ourselves if you see the ideology if you see -- symbol of it means that they are growing and -- are coming against our interests Bonnie thank you very much -- ever certainly.
Going to continue to watch thank.
