In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama's assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their "confrontational" children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists.
Monaco's full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled "Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community," at Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government on April 15.
Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the Muslim terrorists behind the Boston bombings.
