This and following posts are quick squibs about subjects HLSWatch.com discussed with Secretary Chertoff today in a small roundtable of four homeland security bloggers. The session was an informal setting in the old DHS International Affairs digs: Four bloggers, a cabinet secretary, and the press staff leadership.
This is the second roundtable the Secretary has organized and it was far more engaging this time. Topics include cyber, the Fence, the presidential transition, REAL ID, immigration, politics, and planning for the future of the Department.
I should mention President Bushâ€™s stenographer was there to cover the meeting. Sheâ€™s a real pro having worked for three consecutive presidents. Once the transcript is out, weâ€™ll revisit these posts and respond to your questions/comments.
UPDATE 4/3/08: We now have the transcriptfrom this meeting.
