“Agree its a monster but Bush didnt see it coming.”
I want to believe you on this. It’s hard to imagine someone like Bush intentionally creating something so counterproductive to American freedom and American culture.
You seem to know/understand more about this than anyone I’ve come across.
Would you explain why a Homeland Security was deemed necessary when we already have the FBI, CIA, NSA, State Police, Local Police, Sheriff, Coast Guard, ATF, and probably even more such agencies? If a DHS really is necessary to protect our homeland, why was it not around prior to the early 1990’s?
I remember when Bush started Homeland Security. All the agencies you listed were on their own and information was not being shared. Homeland Security was created as a hub where all information from the various agencies was collected and shared. Eventually, the key organizations below were added to Homeland Security to administer:
Key Organizations, A-Z
Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US CERT)
Domestic Nuclear Detection Office
Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)
Federal Law Enforcement Training Center
Management Under Secretary
Operations Coordination Office
Science and Technology Directorate
Transportation Security Administration
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services
U.S. Coast Guard
U.S. Customs and Border Protection
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement
U.S. Secret Service
