Chelsea Clinton on a rise in militant terror groups worldwide: "The greatest risk factor is an unemployed young man"

Coming up tonight at 9, "Piers Morgan Live" invites Chelsea Clinton to share some of her educated insight and political perspective as part of a series of primetime interviews.

Joining the program's host from her father Bill Clinton's annual CGI meeting, the woman, with the unique distinction of having both a former president and a former secretary of state as her parents, fields questions on a variety of topics, including a rapid, worldwide rise in dangerous militant groups.

"There is an issue now with the radicalization of homegrown terror...you have this disaffected youth, you have this unemployed youth. But you also have a youth that can be susceptible to being radicalized," notes Piers Morgan. "How do you think the best way for a country like America can actually deal with this kind of problem?"

In New York to specifically discuss youth mobilization, Clinton offers an entirely eloquent and well-spoken response:

"The greatest risk factor, arguably, is an unemployed young man, to any social system, to any society anywhere in the world. And so ensuring that young people feel like we are collectively investing more in their future, than in kind of either harboring past grievances or in kind of protecting the status quo is, I think, the best antidote to that," she explains. "I think Kenya was attacked because they have been transcending historic tribal barriers and strife. They have come a tremendous way since the 2007-2008 election violence and have been repudiating, kind of the historical forces that were trying to keep Kenya back. So I think because young people stood up in this last election and said we're not going to have a violent election, we are going to have free, transparent and open elections, we are going to move our country forward, sadly, we've seen the backlash."

Watch the above clip for more of Chelsea Clinton's analysis of the ongoing danger associated with a rise in terror groups, and for the entire interview with the woman who spent the breadth of her teenage years living in the White House, watch CNN at 9.
