National Security Mom: Why "Going Soft" Will Make America Strong


In the wake of the war on terrorism, it seems today’s parents are bombarded with news of the latest threats and messages of fear. But how do we achieve national security or even protect our children when we feel so insecure? Gina M. Bennett, a 20- year veteran of the US Intelligence Community, answers this burning question through an insider perspective on national security and a unique “soft” approach to achieving it. NATIONAL SECURITY MOM demystifies the underworld of terrorism and examines how the age-old, practical lessons we teach our children, such as “clean up your mess,” “tell the truth” and “don’t give in to a bully,” apply to the covert intelligence approach to national security. Through her comparisons, Bennett empowers all of us to engage with confidence in the national security debate and reinforces the fact—true and lasting security is a nationwide effort that begins at home.
