Homeland Security: Inside & Out - February 15th, 2009
Friday - 2/13/2009, 1:36pm EST
Few scholars have spent more years focused on homeland security issues than co-hosts, Dave McIntyre and Randy Larsen. This week, Dave and Randy look back at the first seven years of homeland security in the United States, and answer the question: "How did we get here?"
In Part I, they discuss:
- How homeland security emerged as a line of thought at the federal level prior to the 9/11 attacks.
- The debate over whether to focus the nation's resources on high probability/low consequence events (such as car bombs) or low probability/high consequence events (such as nuclear or biological attacks).
- Their initial reactions to the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the subsequent anthrax attacks, and their analysis of the investigations that followed.
In Part II, they discuss:
- The rush after 9/11 to create the Department of Homeland Security, and its long-term implications for the nation.
- The effects of the Bush administration's decision to largely ignore the findings of the Hart-Rudman Commission, a bi-partisan panel that studied homeland security issues for three years.
- Whether the model for counterterrorism should be viewed as law-enforcement, war ... or something else.
In Part III, they discuss:
- Whether Congress should pull FEMA out of DHS.
- Who should get the blame for what happened -- and didn't happen -- during Hurricane Katrina.
- The need to stop trying to handle emergency management at the federal, state and local levels "on the cheap."
