KING: We welcome to "Larry King Live." Good to have him back, former Governor of Pennsylvania, Tom Ridge1. He was the first United States Secretary of Homeland Security from 2001 to 2003. He's President and CEO of Ridge Global and author of the book "The Test of Our Times: America Under Siege and How We Can Be Safe Again." Tom was telling me during the break kind of an ironic2 story.

The Department of Homeland Security doesn't run the TSA. That's the Department of Justice and the FBI. So there's a shared responsibility to keep us safe, but there's also shared accountability. When the president says we need to take a look at the watch list, I think he's on to something.

What is the mentality6, what's the culture, what are we going to do to make sure that more information, particularly those that kind of information that sends warning signals out, gets to the people who can act on it. Whether you're in the battlefield or in Iraq or Afghanistan or you're a screener in an airport, you need actionable information. And I'm not sure this information was in the hands of…
