Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Wednesday the government has not done enough to educate and engage the public in preventing terrorism.
"For too long, we've treated the public as a liability to be protected rather than asset in our nation's collective security," Napolitano said Wednesday during a speech at the Council on Foreign Relations. "This approach, unfortunately, has allowed confusion, anxiety and fear to linger."
"We face a common threat," she added. "It requires a collective response. And we must face that threat and coordinate that response in an
evolving and highly networked world."
