Tom Ridge

Oct 3, 2011

Tom Ridge was the first Homeland Security Secretary under George W. Bush.  He’s in town this past weekend to speak on the Connecticut Forum panel called “Global Affairs: A World of Revolution” with host Michel Martin from NPR, former policy director for the state department, Anne Marie Slaughter, and foreign affairs journalist Robin Wright.  

We talked to Ridge about whether American fighting abroad is making us safer at home, and where this former Republican insider stands on the current crop of Presidential candidates.
