Homeland Insecurity

August 30, 2007 | City Safe

Four years after the creation of the Department of Homeland Security, the nation’s ports, rails and airports remain highly vulnerable to terrorist attacks, according to Dr. Joseph King, a former anti-terrorism chief for the Customs Service who now teaches at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. In the premier of “City Safe,” CUNY Radio’s new series on security and terrorism, Prof. King argues that the agency has also failed to support New York City, the site of two terrorist attacks and perhaps the nation’s top target for terrorists. Professor King also discusses a recent study by the New York Police department on homegrown terrorism and how Muslims in the U.S. become radicalized.
