What are the major terrorist threats not yet on our radar?
How are New York and other cities around the world adjusting to modern security threats? Just ask Mitchell Silber. He sat down with The Generation co-editor Brad Rowe in UCLA’s Murphy Sculpture Garden to discuss his new book The Al Qaeda Factor, terrorist threats in the Western Hemisphere, and his inspiring personal journey from Wall Street to NYPD (which he has served for seven years).
Silber is the Director of both the NYPD Intelligence Division’s Analytic and Cyber Units. He supervises the analysis of the portfolio of terrorism-related investigations within the Intelligence Division.

The site’s title is a recognition that — through factors such as news, social media, and diversity — today’s generation of young people are more aware and active in global events than ever before.
