Navy SEAL worried about Terrorist Attacks on Keystone XL

By Lydia Gilbertson | Google+

The Huffington Post posted a report detailing David M. Cooper, a retired Command Master Chief Navy SEAL’s analysis on the risk for terrorist attacks on the oil pipeline. “It would take a limited number of terrorists, small amount of explosives, some basic hand tools [to conduct] a coordinated attack along just a few key nodes along that pipeline in the span of just really minutes” Cooper said.

Cooper has never worked on environmental issues, and was not biased during his analysis.
