Martha MacCallum: Breaking tonight, Belgian police believe that they foiled a major terror attack today at a Brussels train station when they shot a suspect with a suicide vest. Soldiers quickly neutralized the man after he set off a small explosion which you can see in this photo. You might remember that in March of last year three coordinated attacks at the city's airport and train station left 32 people dead. Here now is Pete Hoekstra, the former House Intelligence Committee Chairman. This is the third attack on the continent in the last couple of days, including Paris and the UK. Pete, what you make of all this?
Pete Hoektra: Well I think it's disappointing, but we can describe this as the new normal in Europe. These are problems that have been festering, people have been predicting that this was going to be happening. This is the thing that we are going to be reading about and Europe is going to be experiencing on a regular basis for the foreseeable future.
Martha: In terms of getting better at it, thank goodness this man was neutralized as they put it before he could blow up his suicide vest. We saw a similar thing on the Champs-Élysées in Paris yesterday. Are we getting better at tracking and finding these guys?
Pete: Well I don't think we found them, they found us. They found the law enforcement officers and luckily – not luckily - these guys were prepared, these law enforcement officials were prepared to deal with the situation, they dealt with it quickly and effectively. It appears that the attackers in both those cases were maybe not that well-trained, that their devices malfunctioned and didn't carry out the kind of destruction that they were hoping that they would. But Europe now needs to get very serious about how they're going to deal with this. Two things that they can deal with that are under their control - they can deal with their borders to stop the mass migration coming into their countries. They can work through NATO with United States to get rid of the safe havens in Libya and in Syria. But the more complicated problem is how are they going to deal with the internal politics and the internal threat that exists in their countries today.
Martha: Pete Hoekstra, thank you very much. Good to see you.
Pete: Thank you.
