As Iran's illicit nuclear program continues to inflame tensions between Tehran and the West, I am struck by the emergence of another possible avenue of attack emanating from Iran—the possibility that Iran could conduct a cyber attack against the United States homeland. Now, many will discount this threat just as many ignored the possibility that Iran would conduct any kind of attack on American soil. Well, this assumption was proven woefully wrong when last year's plot to kill the Saudi Ambassador was uncovered. Now we are adjusting to a realistic understanding of Iran's intent to conduct terror attacks and to kill innocent Americans in the U.S. homeland, we cannot blind ourselves to this new threat. After all, if Iran is willing to blow up a Washington restaurant, and kill innocent Americans, we would be naive to think that Iran could never conduct a cyber attack against the United States homeland.
