I agree with Post #1. And I would also add that as fast as we come up with new measures to keep ourselves safer, terrorists are going to come up with newer ways to hurt us. We know airplanes and airports are safer now, but what about the ships coming into our ports? You might want to take a look at that part of Homeland Security and examine what's being done there. You could showcase two or three ways security has been upgraded with the different port authorities on our coasts or ways in which our Coast Guard helps protect us. Are their efforts being effective enough? We know illegal drugs get into our country via boats. Could terrorists or their weaponry get through somehow? What safeguards do port officials have to keep weapons of mass destruction out of our country? Are our cruise ships safe at sea?
All these questions and more could be used to create a very good project. Good luck!
