Fox News host Sean Hannity said Monday that he believes "9/11, or far worse, is going to happen on our soil -- probably sooner rather than later."
Hannity was speaking on TheBlaze TV's Dana about the threat from the Islamic State. He was particularly concerned about how militant Islamists could make use of an open border to carry out attacks.
"[On America's southern border,] they're capturing people from Yemen, Syria, Pakistan, and Afghanistan," he said. "In my opinion, ISIS is here. In my opinion, I believe [Saudi Arabian] King Abdullah, I believe former Vice President Cheney are right. I think 9/11, or far worse, is going to happen on our soil -- probably sooner rather than later. It's a matter of when, not a matter of if."
King Abdullah made headlines last month after saying the Islamic State "will reach Europe in a month and America in another month."
Hannity remarked: "How we don't secure our border, for whatever reason, to me is the single dumbest national security mistake we could possibly make."
"I didn't get a whole lot that I agree with out of the 9/11 Commission Report, but the one thing that always stood with me was -- they were at war with us, we weren't at war with them," the Fox News host said. "After the beheading of two journalists, you have the leader of ISIS saying 'We'll see you in New York,' and they plan to plant [their] flag in the White House -- that is a declaration of war. If you noticed this weekend, the president couldn't even acknowledge such. That's scary to me."
