by virtue of nspd51, townsend was in charge of a new ‘national continuity implementation plan‘. so she set up the new CoG plan and now she’s just going to walk away?
from ap: Fran Townsend, the leading White House-based terrorism adviser who gave public updates on the extent of the threat to U.S. security, is stepping down after 4 1/2 years.
President Bush said in a statement Monday morning that Townsend, 45, “has ably guided the Homeland Security Council. She has played an integral role in the formation of the key strategies and policies my administration has used to combat terror and protect Americans.”
Her departure continues an exodus of key Bush aides and confidants, with his two-term presidency in the final 15 months…
Townsend has told colleagues she is looking for opportunities in the private sector.
and just so you don’t think she won’t run away from something scary, watch townsend walk away from the press corp when they won’t stop asking about emanuel goldstein…
