CNN's Phil Mudd

Former CIA intelligence analyst Phil Mudd on Wednesday broke down Wednesday during a live TV broadcast following the deadly mass shooting at a Florida high school.

Mudd was reacting to the shooting, relating it to an experience he had on the field as a CIA agent.

“I talked to a terrorist who almost died because he wanted to blow up a weapon, a car bomb, and he was sent to blow it up by ISIS and al-Qaeda,” Mudd said. “And they didn't tell him he was going to blow up the car bomb. When he detonated, the car caught fire, it didn't blow up. and I talked to him after he lost a lot of his skin, his hands, his feet.”

“A child of God is dead,” Mudd said.

“Can not we acknowledge in this country that we can't, we can’t,” he continued, as he started to sob.

“I can't do it,” Mudd said.
