WASHINGTON (CBSMiami) – During a sit-down interview for Face the Nation filmed last Saturday, former Republican presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Florida, predicted a potential terrorist attack in Turkey while discussing the importance of a strong and unified NATO.

Face the Nation host John Dickerson asked the Florida senator if Russia was the biggest threat facing the European members of NATO, but Rubio responded saying that it was radical Islam.

“One of our NATO allies right now that faces the greatest threat of ISIS is Turkey.” Rubio stated and foreshadowed yesterday’s events saying, “I would not be surprised over the next few weeks to see major ISIS operations within Turkey itself.”
