COLMES: You said to a speech at Yale, December 6, 1999, that we would be attacked by a small group of foreign terrorists using weapons of mass destruction, not thinking that perhaps an airplane would be a weapon...
COLMES: ... of mass destruction.
HART: Nobody knew how or when or...
COLMES: And you firmly believe that what happened on September 11 will happen again in the United States?
HART: Yes, well, not that. What will happen sooner rather than later is probably a biological attack on multiple targets in the center of this country. Probably smallpox in Denver, Cleveland, and Dallas.
