Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano plans to give a major public speech about terrorism and other security issues next week in New York City, a tipster told Foreign Policy magazine.

Beers was the former Bush counterterrorism advisor who quit a few days before the invasion of Iraq and joined presidential candidate John Kerry's campaign.
