Famous quotes from Secretary Cohen:
While we are not and cannot become the world’s policeman, neither can we become a prisoner of world events, isolated and tucked safely away in a continental cocoon.

There is no foolproof security that we can provide. But to say that we can’t protect against everything doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t protect against those that can cause us catastrophic harm.

For while the threat of nuclear holocaust has been significantly reduced, the world remains a very unsettled and dangerous place.

Terrorism is escalating to the point that Americans soon may have to choose between civil liberties and more intrusive means of protection.

We will not win the war on terror through military action. The sharing of information and intelligence will be vital to protecting our country.

The more reliant we become upon computers and information systems, the more vulnerable we become to cyber-terrorists who will conceive unlimited ways to cripple our infrastructure, our power grids, our banking systems, our financial markets, our space based communications systems.
