HALIFAX, Nova Scotia (Reuters) – Regular citizens around the world need to realize they can play a big role in thwarting terrorist attacks, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Saturday.
“They will be the ones that notice something in the neighborhood, see something on the street,” she told a panel at an international forum hosted by the German Marshall Fund public policy group.
“Maybe somebody will pass along a quiet message about ‘Hey, these young people have gone over to Somalia. We don’t know what they’re doing, but now they’re back and you may need to know about that,’” she said.
