ABSTRACT
The article focuses on security management in the U.S. The nation lacks a comprehensive transport security plan, clear-cut oversight among congressional bodies or enough funding to protect maritime facilities, according to a panel of homeland security analysts. Congressional Democrats last month raised security concerns over a proposed 300 pound shipment of weapons- grade plutonium from the United States to France for conversion into a mixed- oxide fuel as part of a U.S.--Russian nonproliferation program.
