Frank Lavin is the former US Ambassador to Singapore (2001 to 2005). In 2004, the embassy where he worked was the planned target of a Al Qaeda attack. Whilst Frank managed to escape unscathed due to a combination of meticulous planning and the sterling efforts of Singapore’s intelligence services, Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stephens was not so lucky when the US embassy in Benghazi was attacked in September last year.

In a new piece for the journal Foreign AffairsFrank talks about his experiences of dealing with terrorism, and how the smooth and successful aversion of the attack in Singapore should serve as an example of how best to foil bomb plots targeted at political institutions.
