Mideast Hijacking

July 07, 1985

Terrorism cannot be stopped alone at the airport. Terrorism can only be stopped by fear--the fear of imminent death by the potential criminal.

The United States must train a professional cadre of governmental, sponsored assassins who have access to the full proply of intelligence and technology available to the United States. Any known individual who has plans to undertake a terrorist act--should be "neutralized." The word will get out pretty fast then.

American society has no choice but to review its trditional attitudes about the sanctity of human life. Counter-murder is our only defense. And we are at the 11th hour.

I am convinced that within three years, the terrorist community will have a nuclear device the size of a briefcase--with every horrendous possibility that that implies. There is no time for debate. There is no time. There is no time.
