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.

He is among a growing number of doctors, academics and institutions who in recent weeks have adapted and amplified their scientific messaging in hopes of countering what has been termed an infodemic -- a deluge of information, including widespread false claims, which experts say can pose a serious threat to public health.
Ted Cruz doesn’t want people shamed with body bags for going to beach: ‘Please stop the hate’
In early May, Florida attorney Daniel Uhlfelder made news by dressing up as the Grim Reaper in an attempt to scare people from crowding beaches during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Days later, he escalated by laying out body bags on the steps of the Florida capitol building in Tallahassee.
He escalated further on Saturday by announcing he would be handing out body bags to Florida beachgoers and started a fundraiser with the funds going to two progressive Political Action Committees.
The effort caught the eye of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).
