dc.description.abstract"The events of September 11, 2001 forever altered America'۪s perception of its own vulnerability and focused the entire nation upon the immediate and urgent objective to secure itself in such a way as to prevent such a dire tragedy from ever occurring again. But uncertainty remains a persistent product of such threats that defy precise clarity, threats that possess an inherent variability that defies any decisive quantification and evades resolution. This essay seeks to provide a rational basis by which investment in our nation'۪s academic institutions of higher education and research will yield a definitive course of reasoned response. The application of a sustained academic expenditure remains a critical necessity. Knowledge and understanding ''' through academic research and inquiry ''' is our nation'۪s best and most resolute endeavor."en_US
