Holy Crap, I just realized what Thompson meant:
We're living in the era of the suitcase bomb." A day later, he posted an explanation on his Web site, saying he was referring to Cuban spies, not immigrants.
He thinks were in Red Dawn!
Col. Andy Tanner: Yeah. That's right. Infiltrators came up illegal from Mexico. Cubans mostly. They managed to infiltrate SAC bases in the Midwest, several down in Texas and wreaked a helluva lot of havoc, I'm here to tell you. They opened up the door down here, and the whole Cuban & Nicaraguan armies come walking right through, rolled right up here through the Great Plains.
