Why We Aren't Stopping Tomorrow's TerrorismeBook - 2010
Stewart A. Baker, a former Homeland Security official, examines the technologies we lovejet travel, computer networks, and biotechand finds that they are likely to empower new forms of terrorism unless we change our current course a few degrees and overcome resistance to change from business, foreign governments, and privacy advocates. He draws on his Homeland Security experience to show how that was done in the case of jet travel and border security but concludes that heading off disasters in computer networks and biotech will require a hardheaded recognition that privacy must sometimes yield to security, especially as technology changes the risks to both.
