President Bush has asserted repeatedly that the greatest national security threat facing our country is the possibility of a nuclear, biological, or chemical weapon in the hands of a terrorist group. Today, the United States maintains the largest and most potent military force in the history of the world to mitigate that possibility. But in the age of terrorism, of information flows and international trade and travel, military force is no longer adequate to defend ourselves. The tools of catastrophic terrorism are increasingly less likely to be rooted in the acquisition of advanced weaponry, and more likely to be facilitated by highly trained individuals utilizing their talents for destructive ends. Engaging these gifted individuals in sustainable peaceful pursuits is rapidly becoming the front lines of the war on terrorism. Critical, though poorly publicized, opportunities exist for American businesses and venture capitalists to do their part while assisting their own bottom line.
