ABSTRACT
This article outlines the threats against and vulnerabilities of the sea-trade system, describes the international and U.S. response, and discusses gaps that have not been adequately addressed and issues that are not yet resolved. Terrorist organizations have demonstrated access to maritime commerce. Each maritime subsystem has its own set of vulnerabilities that must be individually and systemically addressed because they can discover and exploit the weakest link in each subsystem. Investment in maritime and port security when compared to other homeland security expenditures has not been consistent with the relative risk. However, we must resist the temptation of believing that we can buy ourselves a secure world.
