"The biggest obstacle my successor will face is, 'Does the public and does Congress have the will to stick to it?' " Chertoff said. "Or are we going to start to see people cannibalize homeland security because we haven't been attacked for six years, [and] it doesn't seem like it is a burning issue any more?"
