A critical examination of questionable US security policies

In S.O.S./STATE OF SECURITY we meet Richard Clarke, former chief advisor in matters of counter-terrorism on the National Security Council under presidents Clinton and George W. Bush. Clarke first came to public attention when testifying before the 9/11 Commision, adressing the victims of the attacks Clarke professed that "your government failed you, I failed you". STATE OF SECURITY takes us on a journey through the murky and labyrinthine world of American security politics.
