In this powerful and urgently needed call to action, national security expert Stephen Flynn offers a startling portrait of the radical shortcomings in America's plan for homeland security. He describes a frightening scenario of what the next major terrorist attack might look like -- revealing the tragic loss of life and economic havoc it would leave in its wake, as well as the seismic political consequences it would have in Washington. Flynn also shows us how to prepare for such a disaster, outlining a bold yet practical plan for achieving security in a way that is safe and smart, effective and manageable.

In this new world of heightened risk and fear, America the Vulnerable delivers a timely, forceful message that cannot be ignored.

Review quote

This book had to be written. Flynn s threat scenarios are chillingly persuasive. His urgent prescriptions are compelling. --Gary Hart, former U.S. Senator, co-chair, the United States Commission on National Security for the 21st Century"
