The significance of the next attack will be determined by the kind of attack it is.

If some radical outfit lights off a suitcase nuke somewhere in the CONUS, it's all over, because the USofA will be under martial law within hours, and will never emerge.

I can't put my finger on it, but the premise seems wrong. Why does it have to be militarized?

"security that actually focuses on the foremost challenges of our moment" isn't really the point; should be, maybe, but protecting one's job and maintaining the status quo is what drives the wheels. See: "The Iron Law of Institutions"
