Monday To-Do: Janet Napolitano

Posted By on Sun, Aug 21, 2011 at 11:48 AM

Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano comes to the Clinton Presidential Center Monday.

The Clinton Presidential Center has certainly brought in some serious political heavyweights. While Arne Duncan and Ray LaHood have both been to Arkansas within the last year or so, it's not every day that Little Rock gets a presentation from the acting director of a high-profile, Cabinet-level department of the federal government.

Former New Mexico Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano is the third secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, which was created in the wake of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. Though relatively young, DHS has been criticized for many things, from the typical charges of wasteful spending to more pointed complaints about privacy violations and security gaffes such as the thwarted "Underwear Bomber," Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab.

But if nothing else, we can all be thankful that Napolitano replaced that ridiculous color-coded terrorist alert system. Seating at these events is limited, and this one will probably fill up quickly, so make reservations by calling 683-5239.

UPDATE: This lecture was moved from the Clinton School to the Statehouse Convention Center.
