Former CIA Director James Woolsey talked about the war on terrorism in Tulsa Wednesday.

Woolsey says this is the longest war of the 21st century and it's just getting started. He says Americans should be prepared to stay in Afghanistan and Iraq for a long time to come. “One thousand deaths, is a thousand too many. It's 1/6th of D-Day. We may well be in this war and have considerable casualties in the years and decades to come.”

Woolsey says we need to defeat three radical groups in the Middle East, the Bathists, Shiites and al-Qaida before the war can be won.
