Security not a guarantee



Everyone now knows what those of us with certain experiences have known for a long time: There are no immunities in an open society, and that will remain true, even if we go to a much higher degree of physical security. You can't make our sort of society airtight."

- David Halberstam, author of the newly released book, War in a Time of Peace: Bush, Clinton and the Generals. The author of 17 books, including The Best and the Brightest, was quoted by a reporter at the Los Angeles Times.
