Former CIA Director Michael Morrell warned Wednesday on CBS that the United States could face copycat attacks after a terrorist used a vehicle to murder at least 8 people in New York on Tuesday.

“The pattern we’re seeing in Europe now is an attack followed by copycat attacks,” Morrell said.

“We had the Westminster attack in March, followed by three attacks over the next four weeks. We had the Manchester attack in May, followed by three attacks over the next four weeks,” he explained.

CBS ran a graphic listing the deadliest truck attacks, all similar in tactics, of the past year. Barcelona, London, and Berlin all made the list, showing the wide reach of Islamic terrorism.

“We need to be vigilant about that,” Morrell concluded.
