Failures of Imagination: The Deadliest Threats to Our Homeland--and How to Thwart Them

This book written by the Chairman of the House, Homeland Security Committee, is a must read. This is set up in a scenario method, He uses actual national security scenarios to build events, then goes back and discusses the known intell that supports the scenario. It makes for both a thrilling read, and a sobering look at how the ground work for this type of scenario's is already in place. He first looks at scenario coming over the border from Canada, then a dirty bomb coming up from South crossing the Mexican border. He makes the case for both happening, and perhaps even starting to happen now. An interesting scenario, one that is way to close to home this year, is China pouring in money to effect our elections to include the Presidential Election. When he goes back to show how this can happen, you only have to go back to the last Clinton Presidential run for Bill Clinton. Over 5 Chinese American Businessmen went to jail or fled to China to avoid prosecution. A Korean also went to jail, all for illegally funneling foreign money into the Clinton Campaign. Could it happen, it turns out to be easier now than ever before. What watchdogs do we have, they all come from the Obama Justice Department, some may have doubts, but the FBI will stay the course, like the US Secret Service most are a political when it comes to prosecution of bad guys.
