About this title


Based on his first-hand experiences and observations of how the Department of Homeland Security is failing to make America safe, Ervin shows the real threats we face--from nuclear attack to homegrown terrorism. Pushed out by the White House for refusing to sugarcoat its failures, Ervin candidly discusses the circumstances of his departure. He takes the reader inside the decision-making councils of this newest department of the U.S. government, and shows how his team's prescriptions for urgent change were ignored--leaving the US vulnerable to another terrorist attack.

About the Author:

Clark Kent Ervin is former Inspector General of the Department of Homeland Security and currently holds a post at the Aspen Institute. He is an on-air terrorism analyst for CNN, and will be appearing regularly as an expert on Wolf Blitzer's new show, The Situation Room. Previously, Ervin served as Inspector General of the State Department for over a year under Secretary Powell, and worked as Assistant Secretary of the State of Texas under President George W. Bush when he was Governor of Texas. Ervin has been profiled in media such as U.S. News and World Report, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, among others.
