International Cooperation And Its Role In Securing Our Homeland

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

The Bush Administration's National Security Strategy acknowledges that the global war on terrorism is not one it can win alone. "We know that to defeat terrorism in today's globalized world we need support from our allies and friends," the strategy declares, "wherever possible, the United States will rely on regional organizations and state powers to meet their obligations to fight terrorism. Where governments find the fight against terrorism beyond their capacities, we will match their willpower and their resources with whatever help we and our allies can provide." How well are we doing in achieving true international cooperation?

Appointed Director of International Affairs for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in June 2003, Ambassador Arcos has an extensive background in international relations. Prior to his current position, he served as AT&T Corporation's Vice President and Managing Director for International Public Affairs for Latin America and Canada, and from 1989 to 1993 he was Ambassador to Honduras.
