The next time the US is attacked by terrorists, who has a direct, secure line to Department of Homeland Security (DHS)?
A. Local first responders--police, fire departments, port officials, etc.,
B. A consortium of public utilities,
C. State governors, who have the responsibility for activating National Guard units,
D. Hospitals and health care professionals, or
E. CEOs from 150 of the nation's largest companies, like Dow Chemical, ExxonMobil, GE, Citigroup, and Bechtel.
The answer is (E), of course, for reasons as obvious and banal as you would expect--the initiative, called CEO COM LINK, is a brainchild of the Bush White House, where the corporate interest is the only interest.
