Jay Davis, Homeland Security Expert

What are the gravest threats to America's security, and how can the country best protect itself? Marcia Franklin talks with Jay Davis, former director of the ANSER Institute for Homeland Security, about what is being done to protect the world from nuclear and biological weapons.

Davis, who participated in two UN inspections of Iraq in 1991, is a scientist and the former director of the Defense Threat Reduction Agency of the U.S. Department of Defense. An expert in accelerator mass spectrometry, Dr. Davis spent more than 30 years at the Lawrence Livermore Laboratory, has authored over 80 publications, and holds patents on spectrometer technologies.
