Analysis: No easy answers for a lawmaker's contractor inquiry

On the face of it, it seems like a simple question: How many contractors work for the Department of Homeland Security?

Terrorism Help

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says the U.S. government has not done everything it can to educate and engage the public in preventing terrorism. Napolitano spoke Wednesday at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York before heading to ground zero. She said the public has been treated as a "liability to be protected," instead of an asset in maintaining the nation's security. Americans, she says, have a role along with local law enforcement, the federal government and the international community.
