Chapter 14

Thought 1: The book talks about the implementation of technology to avoid terrorist attacks and even goes into detail about tools such as a biometric screening system and how it is used. What are some other advances in technology you believe should be implemented to protect nations from terrorist attacks?

Thought 2: After the 9/11 attacks the United States was forced to re-evaluate its policy in homeland security. Do you believe the U.S. does enough with technology to stay a step ahead of terrorists? Do you think the United States should share that information with other countries to keep the world ahead of the non traditional tactics terrorist organizations use?

Thought 3: The C.I.A uses extraordinary measures to stay ahead of the curve in the war on terrorism. Do you believe the C.I.A goes too far with the technology it uses or do you think governmental organizations should use every technological tool to ensure the security of the nation?
