Before turn-ing to the key policy issue of how to use risk assessments to maximize unity of effort at the federal level, I would like to briefly outline what makes a basic risk assess-ment and some of the challenges inherent in trying to assess homeland security risks.

It is worth peeling back the layers of the onion in those three areas a bit more fully to understand the complexities associated with assessing homeland security risks. In most formal discussions of risk assessment, risk is defined as the product of the probability that a certain event might occur - a suicide bomber attack on a hotel such as we saw take place last week in Jordan - and the consequences that could result from such an event.

In some cases weapons could be relatively difficult to acquire or develop, like the smallpox virus or a small nuclear device, or they could be much more common - an improvised explosive device carried on a delivery truck.
