Richard Tarrant on Homeland Security
A: A worldwide network of sophisticated terrorist operators exists. We must remain ever vigilant and continue to allocate resources to intelligence and counter-terrorism efforts in order to bring an end to terrorism. We need to restore funds taken from human intelligence agencies immediately prior to 9-11, as well as develop new technological devices for early detection and immediate retribution to those who would harm us.
Tarrant says the security of the country has to be one of the highest priorities in a time of war. Tarrant says, "I think it's a matter of balance. I don't want to lose all rights but I'd be willing to sacrifice some rights for security. Two aspects of the Constitution that are seemingly at odds. It's a good thing to publicly debate that." Tarrant admits that the war on terrorism is different from previous conflicts and he says it may be difficult to know exactly when the war has been won.
