Former FBI Agent: 'No Matter What We Do, We Are Vulnerable'

Former FBI agent Jack Cloonan, psychiatrist Dr. Janet Taylor, and Yahoo! News senior editor Beth Fouhy join “Say Anything!” host Joy Behar to reflect on the aftermath of the bombing at the finish line of the 2013 Boston Marathon.

“We should be concerned because we don’t know if this is the beginning of a new front,” Cloonan says. “We’re 10 years out from 9/11. There’s been 50-odd attempts to bomb the United States. Some would say almost 60. This is the first one that happened. That means the zero-sum game is over. We’re starting a new phase. What went wrong here?”

“We are vulnerable. No matter what we do, this is a war of attrition, and who’s going to blink first and who’s going to blink most often,” Cloonan continues.
