Emerging Issues in Homeland Security
Nova Publishers, 2005 - 162 pages
For a myriad of reasons, the United States of America created a Department of Defiance whose seemly unshakeable credo is based on the oft-quoted sports slogan that the best defense is a good offense. Thus, America was caught with its pants down on September 11. It could attack entire countries with doomsday nuclear weapons at the drop of the hat, but couldn't find or hit the person who dropped the hat. It could rain down 500 pound hole blaster bombs but couldn't find the holes. Who even thought anyone would have the chutzpah to attack the US? A US which had grown so indolent following its firm policy of bombing anyone, anywhere without regards to God's or man's laws or even common sense. The new concept of home security has been belatedly discovered by the mandarins in Washington. This book details efforts at trying to figure out why the strongest offensive military power on Earth may also be the weakest defensive power.
