I am not usually a big fan of Terry Gross or her NPR program, “Fresh Air,” but her show from yesterday was unusually good.

They are the authors of Lightning Out of Lebanon: Hezbollah Terrorists on American Soil, who say the cells could potentially be more dangerous than al Qaeda, estimate Hezbollah has cells in 14 cities.

Give this frightening story a listen.
