Clark Kent Ervin talked about his book Open Target: Where America Is Vulnerable to Attack, published by Palgrave Macmillan. Mr. Ervin, former inspector general of both the Department of Homeland Security and the State Department, explained why he thinks Americans are vulnerable to terrorist attacks despite changes in homeland security since September 11, 2001.
