The Mali attacks on Friday are a clear signal that global terrorism is "beginning to catch up with our lack of attention in more than one way," former CIA director James Woolsey told Newsmax TV.

"It's increasing in Paris, France, Europe — and I'm afraid we'll see evidence of that before long in either Britain or the United States," Woolsey told "Newsmax Now" host John Bachman. "But it's increasing at a faster rate in Africa.

"Boko Haram, which means essentially western education is immoral, is basically a Nigerian organization, although they blow things up in other places, too," he said. "They have killed more people than anybody in the last year."

Woolsey applauded the House of Representatives for voting Thursday to restrict Syrian refugees coming to the United States but told Bachman that other steps were necessary.

"We're also getting them in all sorts of other ways. You can't neglect either one in your screening and vetting and requirements.

"It's ridiculous to just focus on the refugees from Syria and not to also focus on people coming in through Latin America," he said. "There's all sorts of people coming through for all sorts of reasons."
