The bloody explosion at the Boston Marathon had left the region shaken and troubled as parents were frantically trying to trace down their children. One such parent, Mary Lou Monaco, had emailed to her daughter, Lisa Monaco in Washington that her twin brother Christopher is safe. Lisa Monaco is actually the new anti-terrorism advisor of the president of United States, Barack Obama. In return to the email, Mary received a response from Lisa stating that she is glad that they are safe but the incident is extremely awful.
This blast in her hometown is been seen as Lisa Monaco’s first test to save and guide the White House in its preparation for anti-terrorism activities. Lisa holds the qualification and background of being a prosecutor who has specialized in terrorism investigation. It is reported that Lisa Monaco is in charge of guiding and helping the president manage these terrorism crisis situations, both internally and globally.
In the words of J. Patrick Rowan who is the previous attorney general at the rein of George Bush, Lisa is absolutely new in this job and this recent incident is truly a significant one. He adds that with this bombing in her hometown, Lisa seems to be getting prepared for difficult situations through the fire. During the time of Bush’s administration, Lisa Monaco was with the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
The scopes for holding better position are on a high for Lisa, with FBI director preparing for his retirement in the month of September. It is estimated that she will be replacing Robert Muller, the present FBI director, along with being the first lady chief to be controlling the bureau. Analysts and politically aware people feel that this crisis at Marathon is the perfect made to suit the background of Lisa Monaco. Though it is largely not known to people, Lisa is associated with the efforts of United States in fighting terrorism much before the time of Barack Obama.
She has experience of working with Robert Muller in association with the national security firms that are completely focused to stop the terrorist attacks in the nation. Being an assistant general in such an organization, Lisa Monaco was also the first female to lead the security actions of the national Justice Department.
Monaco has stated that she is trying her best to analyze and review the response of the country in such crisis situation. She adds that she will be holding meetings with experienced analysts and agents to ensure better national security.
