Protecting America The Top 10 Priorities
Begley, S. (2001). PROTECTING AMERICA The Top 10 Priorities. (cover story). Newsweek, 138(19), 26.
The article explores the dangers of terrorism in the United States and provides steps in how to combat it effectively. After 9/11 terrorists were sending anthrax through the mail as a sort of bio weapon. The government assured people that anthrax could not leak out of the mail, and the dosage was not enough to kill someone. After a few people died, the government was forced to revise its statement. The article had found that the confidence of the American people in the government was low when it came to combating terrorism. Only 48 percent of Americans believed that the government had an effective plan for combating bio terrorism, while 43 percent believed that the government was providing reliable information when it came to anthrax attacks. The author suggests to ways to effectively combat terrorism at all levels of the government. Some ways will only take will and determination, while other ways will take technologies that are not yet mastered. The government cannot protect the people from all scenarios, but they can set up procedures that can reduce harmful events from happening.
I found that the article never really goes in-depth about what the solution to terrorism is. The author never gives great detail about how to combat terrorism and is vague about what technologies to use. What technologies did the author mean when she stated “technologies that are not yet mastered”? The author could have explained that technologies such as x-ray machines have effectively reduced terrorist attacks from occurring in airports. The author should have done a better job of explaining the solutions of combating terrorism.
