The article focuses on the virtues and values of the U.S. Coast Guard's new Maritime Safety and Security Teams. The Coast Guard did not want any reserve units and reluctantly kept only those few demanded by military joint operational plans, such as those port security units for deployment outside the continental U.S. While it is true that most of the U.S. government also was not ready, the Coast Guard cannot hide behind somebody else's excuse when readiness is one of its basic missions and port security was specifically delegated as a reserve responsibility. This should have been no surprise to anyone in the Coast Guard, because the subject of terrorism was widely discussed in the 1990s.
