Ex-Navy SEAL: Create Fake Terror Team to Boost US Security

By    |   Thursday, 19 Mar 2015 05:23 PM

The United States should create a crack team of faux terrorists that tours the country in search of the nation's most vulnerable targets, former Navy SEAL and FBI agent Jonathan Gilliam tells Newsmax TV.

In the wake of the massacre at Tunisia's national museum that left 23 dead, most of them tourists, Gilliam was asked what he would advise the U.S. to do to beef up security.

"I would say develop, which they have in the past, a group of people or hire contractors, to function as a terrorist unit inside the United States," Gilliam said Thursday on "The Steve Malzberg Show."

"We can start looking at this, giving them suggestions, and then take those suggestions seriously. That's what the government should do … create a team."

They would not be armed assassins, able to take out terrorists, however.

"[They] would have the authority to go around the country and looking at it as a terrorist would look at it," he said.

"Picking out the targets, picking out the vulnerabilities, critical areas, critical times, and then making suggestions that need to be taken seriously."

Gilliam, president of United States Continued Service, which employs former military personnel, after he left the Navy SEALS, was a contractor for the Department of Homeland Security.

"We did threat assessments all over the country on soft targets and one of the things we looked at was, for instance, when schools go on a field trip, they'll go park their buses in another location," he said.

"Then nobody secures those buses. They come back and pick up all these kids. When they drop off and pick up, it's a target."
