The article informs that U.S. President George W. Bush response to the terrorist attack of 11 September, 2001, was both swift (the global war on terrorism) and profound (the Department of Homeland Security). The Bush administration's first application of its controversial pre-emption strategy marked an historical tipping point the moment when Washington took real ownership of strategic security in the age of globalization. The U.S. security community worried about globalization only to the extent that it fostered the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and the actions of certain nefarious transnational actors.
