BOSTON (AP) - The state's homeland security undersecretary is helping the Obama administration transition effort.
Juliette Kayyem (kye-EM') has been named to the team advising President-elect Barack Obama on state and national security, defense, intelligence and arms control matters.
The 39-year-old Harvard Law School graduate has been overseeing the state's homeland security issues since 2007.
An Arab-American, Kayyem has been critical of television shows that depict her fellow Arab-Americans as terrorists instead of the law-abiding citizens many of them are.
Besides helping Obama, the team announced late Monday will ensure senior appointees are prepared for the confirmation process and to lead their departments immediately after being sworn in.
