Goward, Dana A.
April 2007
U.S. Naval Institute Proceedings;Apr2007, Vol. 133 Issue 4, p20
Conference Proceeding
The author reflects on the vulnerabilities of the maritime transportation in the U.S., and states that secrecy, which has historically evolved as an integral part of the maritime transportation due to commercial interests, is posing a national security risk. Emphasizing on transparency, he says that the maritime system policies have gaps and there is no system to enforce the policies. He says that slaves, weapons and narcotics can be transported by sea in greater quantities and secrecy.
