Summary
  • The former secretary of the Department of Homeland Security offers an insightful analysis of American security at home and a prescription for the future
  • "Created in the wake of 9/11, the greatest tragedy to occur on US soil, the Department of Homeland Security was handed a sweeping mandate: make America safer. From 2009-2013, Janet Napolitano ran DHS and oversaw twenty-two federal agencies with 240,000 employees. An agency that's part terrorism prevention, part intelligence, part law enforcement, part public safety, and part disaster response and recovery makes for an odd combination in the protocol-driven, tradition-bound Washington, DC, culture. But, says Napolitano, it can make us more safe, secure, and resilient if we understand today's threats. In [this book], Napolitano not only answers the titular question, but grapples with an evolving set of threats that have left us vulnerable again in ways not imagined after the 9/11 attacks, What are the real risks to our national security, as opposed to those that make for dramatic political rhetoric and media sound bites? Why haven't we seen another massive terrorist attack in the US since September 11, 2001--and what should we guard against from now on? This is an urgent warning about American security at home and an insightful prescription for the future. In our current political climate, Napolitano's clarifying, bold vision is needed now more than ever."--Dust jacket
