My concern is the general nature of the items the study intends to address. Protecting communication, for instance, is a real concern. Since the U.S. is connected by only a few major cell phone carriers which rely on computers, and because computers can be hacked, I would worry how this could be addressed in a country of this size.
Another note comes from the text:
Assessment of Preparedness: The TCL provides a basis for assessing preparedness to help jurisdictions and agencies to plan strategically, design appropriate programs that meet proven needs, and evaluate the effectiveness of investments over time.
Here, again, I wonder just how a country can assess preparedness when we can never be sure how an attack would present itself. We were totally caught off-guard because of the manner in which we were attacked and the severity of the impact of the attacks. How could we have prepared for it not imagining that kind of evil. Certainly, we have been well educated, but enough? Again, how can we have a standard of preparedness nationwide, between large cities and so many small communities spread around and between these cities? How will there ever be enough money or physical resources to ascertain that all jurisdictions and agencies are equally and satisfactorily prepared?
