HLSWatch Interviewed on NPR’s “Homeland Security Inside & Out”

Filed under: General Homeland Security — by Jonah Czerwinski on March 2, 2008

The post we ran here about federal efforts to address threats posed by small boats was the subject of an interview on NPR’s Homeland Security Inside & Out.  The hosts of the show, Dave McIntyre and Randy Larsen, also invited me to stay on for a section on the show that discusses suggested homeland security priorities for the President.  You can listen to both sections by clicking through here.  The webpage for this show is available here.

Dave and Randy asked about what the recent DHS attention to the small boat threat may mean for the boating community and public waterways, as well as funding issues.  On the topic of presidential priorities we took a step back from reorganization or funding issues and instead spent the five minutes discussing a new strategic framework that would enable the president to make the best decisions about gauging threats, determining how best to deter, deny, or defeat them, and generally take a broader view of the challenge.  FF to 38:11 of the show for this piece.  Readers may notice certain ideas from an earlier post here are invoked shamelessly.
