Napolitano: Gov't Hasn't Educated Public on Terror

Ad Feedback

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."
