Susan Rice on Homeland Security
As national security adviser, I established the office of Global Health Security and Biodefense at the National Security Council to monitor, prepare for and prevent global health crises. My successor dismantled the office, pushed its leader out and downgraded the position of Homeland Security adviser. The Obama team provided briefing papers and conducted a side-by-side exercise with leaders of the incoming administration focused on pandemic threats. It was discarded by the incoming team.
We need to take maximum advantage of technology and services offered by the private sector to make the best use of our military personnel. There are a number of opportunities where incorporating the latest information technology and "working smarter" could substantially reduce manpower requirements. We cannot afford to have military personnel performing jobs that could be performed just as well by civilians.
