‘Our readiness for a terrorist attack is dangerously low,’ Richard Clarke

“In terms of a major terrorist attack in the United States or on U.S. facilities, I think we’re significantly less ready than we were on January 19,” said Richard Clarke, who served on the National Security Council under three Presidents —  George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush. “I think our readiness is extemely low and dangerously low. Certainly [government] agencies at a professional level will respond [to an attack], but having a coordinated interagency response is unlikely given the current cast of characters [in the administration] and their experience.” reports Uri Friedman in The Atlantic.
