Q: How else is airport security lax?

A: We continue to look for bombs but not for bombers. I think thereís a fundamental flaw in our process. We need to take a page out of the book of the Israelis. I think we could do a better job of emulating what they do.

Q: Do you fear another 9/11 if we donít improve airport security?

A: I do. What Iím most concerned about, however, is that if we have not learned our lesson, then what does it say about our vulnerability in regard to our borders, our nuclear facilities, our chemical stockpiles and so forth. If we havenít corrected this issue (airport security), then it tells me weíre vulnerable everywhere else as well.

Q: What did you learn about the way Washington works?

A: You know whatís interesting is, Iíve engaged policymakers on a one-on-one basis on this issue. I even testified in front of the Senate. Nobody tells me they disagree with me Ö but no one wants to be the champion for the cause.

Q: Do you plan to write another book?

A: My next book will be the unexplored side of a very high-profile murder of a Philadelphia policeman. One side of that issue has been extensively written about but thereís another side that has never been told and I intend to tell it.
