Florida shooting: CNN terrorism expert Philip Mudd breaks down over school massacre

Graph The Washington Post

Appearing on CNN around 5 p.m., less than three hours after a gunman entered Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., and took 17 lives, counterterrorism analyst Philip Mudd did his best to offer his viewpoint on the situation. So far, what they've found is "very, very disturbing", he said.

Mr Mudd ended the interview abruptly as he was fighting back tears.

"I can't do it, Wolf", he said to CNN's Wolf Blitzer.

After explaining how he has spoken to unwilling ISIS fighters, Mudd's voice starts to break as he implores, 'I have 10 nieces and nephews. We're talking about legislation? "I'm so sorry. We can't do it".

Some analysts became emotional and had difficulty expressing their thoughts.

"This happens nowhere else other than the United States of America - this epidemic of mass slaughter, this scourge of school shooting after school shooting", Murphy said Wednesday. "We're going to get back to you". "And people say we've got to learn some and, as a result people say we've got to learn some lessons".

While discussing how this attack happened, Mudd became emotional.

Not even someone with over 30 years of experience between the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Central Intelligence Agency was able to handle the news of yet another mass shooting. "We're talking about legislation", Mudd said before beginning to break down while condemning the shameful inaction to stop school shootings in the U.S. It only happens here, not because of coincidence, not because of bad luck, but as a effect of our inaction.
