What: “Open Target: Where America is Vulnerable to Attack”
Who: Clark Kent Ervin, Director of the Homeland Security Initiative, Aspen Institute; Terrorism Analyst for CNN; former Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (2003-2004); former Inspector General of the State Department under Secretary Powell; and former Assistant Secretary of the State of Texas under President George W. Bush when he was Governor of Texas
Event: After the Sept. 11, 2001, the Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) was created to keep the American people safe from future terrorist attacks. According to Clark Kent Ervin, the U.S. has failed to take measures to protect vital and vulnerable areas, industries, and locations from terrorist attacks. In his new book, Open Target, Mr. Ervin looks at the mismanagement and security flaws at DHS and identifies the numerous ways that the U.S. stil remains open to terrorist attacks through airlines, ports, mass transit, and our infrastructure such as our water supply. He also discusses the agency's fragmented intelligence capabilities and outlines the steps that the U.S. should be taking to prepare and defend ourselves.
