Dana Perino warns if we’re hit again the attack on civil liberties will be ‘worse than you ever imagined’

Fox News’ “The Five” co-host Dana Perino warned Friday of the unprecedented damage that would befall America’s civil liberties if another terrorist attack unfolds on U.S. soil.

Already, she said, certain invasions of citizen privacy are necessary to prevent future attacks, including monitoring phone calls. Profiling won’t work because the demographics of terrorists often change, she said.

“For example, the guy this week who was busted in Texas, arrested for trying to provide material support for ISIS: American guy, American-sounding name,” said Perino, who served as press secretary for President George W. Bush. “You wouldn’t have necessarily said, ‘I’m gonna put him on my little profile list.’”

The argument for profiling is flawed, she added, because “you don’t know how to find the people that you want to profile.”

She warned that civil liberties will only suffer further if a future attack is carried out.

“If something happens, I guarantee you the attack on civil liberties if there’s another attack will be worse than anything you’ve ever imagined,” Perino said.
