On "The Five" today, Greg Gutfeld reacted to the thwarted terror attack on a train in France and called for a recommitment to national security.

Gutfeld blamed the government for not tracking and stopping the gunman, who was on three terror watch lists, before he attempted to carry out his attack.

Gutfeld said that in the modern world, anyone can become a terrorist, so we must rely upon increased surveillance.

"Given that terrorists are innocent of crimes until they commit them, that means our only offense is a great defense," Gutfeld said. "It's time we shake the [Edward] Snowden hangover, and recommit to national security."

"As long as we allow our security to be dictated by rats, then we'll need to rely on the kindness of strangers on a train."
