  • One DHS?

    Reading the article made me wonder if there are two DHS organizations in the Federal government, i.e., the bold and efficient agency depicted here (in the words of the obviously impartial and noninterested DHS management figures) and the widely dysfunctional DHS scathingly described in innumerable GAO reports. We have fequently seen such self-serving statements from DHS officials since the agency officially "stood up" in March 2003 attesting to their increasingly successful efforts to meld 22 different predecessor agencies or portions thereof into a harmonious, coordinated whole. Yet somehow this Fantasyland goal has always continued to recede into the vague future. The sort of less than probing reportage revealed here is not a new phenomenon. What's easier in writing reports: conducting puff piece interviews of senior agency management using easy, lobbed questions and accepting uncritically whatever bilge they dish out or digging for the truth by doing some serious advance research and confronting said managers with informed questions to get at the real truth? (rhetorical question) Of course, following the latter approach would entail a risk that future easy access to agency interviewees would be a thing of the past for such gimlet-eyed reporters. Can't have that now, can we.

    Show me where in the Constitution DHS has any authority to exist? There is NONE. And you can't say that the 1947 National Security Act, nor the "Homeland Security" Act of 2002 "authorizes" it either. 9/11 was no excuse because the official 9/11 story is a lie--even several of the commission members admitted their investigation was a fraud. Read "9/11 Synthetic Terror: Made in USA" by Webster Tarpley. Here's is DHS's TSA "keeping you safe" by engaging in U.S. Government authorized criminal sexual conduct: http://www.scribd.com/doc/105000289/104904507-TSA-Complaints-2010 FOIA Letters Reveal Shocking Cases Of TSA Groping Genitals http://www.infowars.com/foia-letters-reveal-shocking-cases-of-tsa-groping-genitals/ TSA Looking for Al-Qaeda in Your Coffee http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMdohejuMII "There was a reason why they made Al-Qaeda (this CIA Arab Legion masquerading as a bunch of ragtag fundamentalist terrorists) the enemy of the 21st century - one reason: Al-Qaeda is ASYMMETRICAL Previously, wars were symmetrical - wars were between nationstates or two opposing superpowers. SYMMETRY means - you know what to expect - your adversaries will be soldiers of a given country, and you pretty much know the rules and what to expect. Now that you have supposed 'terrorists' and 'sleeper cells' - all of a sudden the enemy is de-centralized - there's no Al-Qaeda HQ so to speak - they can be anywhere. And they form independent social networks and they can use 'ideas'/'memes' to 'influence' others to join their ranks. And because the military's entire infrastructure was based on fighting a symmetrical threat, this 'enemy' all of a sudden justified the need for upgrading all systems so that they could meet 'asymmetrical warfare'. See how they have perfectly mapped this Al-Qaeda archetype onto the general public? People in the 'mass' are 'asymmetrical' - they only form a bond through ideas, and social networks. So they need to regulate all that all under the pretense that there is a global enemy out there that operates by the same guidelines. This should be pointed out more - because this explains in a nutshell why this entire War on Terror is really a War on the Public."
