What are the big security threats in our times? Janet Napolitano, the former Secretary of Homeland Security should know. She sees them as global warming and climate change, cyber security and attacks on U.S. elections, and “the rise of mass gun violence”. Her views are presented on the In Homeland Security blog.
If they make you cringe, awareness and the willingness to act concertedly is the first resort. For example, assistance from the U.S.helped turn things around in Colombia, “which was once known as a narco-state.”
“I think building a border wall is a symbol, not a strategy,” Napolitano said. “There are other issues that should be demanding our attention.”
Napolitano is a lifelong Democrat who served as attorney general and governor of Arizona.
