4/14/16 Homeland Security 1. Director of National Intelligence ­ This not a simple/small agency. It was designed to be a small agency, but it failed in that  aspect because there is far too much relevance. 2.  Intelligence Community ­ CIA is the only stand alone agency. They only have to answer to the National Security Council. ­ The Reconnaissance office was lost, predominantly, in the post and have been replaced with satellites. ­  Army, Navy, AF, and Marine are all separate departments because they are focusing on different issues. This division is the “wall of separation.” ­ DHS is the umbrella agency. This is designed to deal with all homeland security, it is the catch all for everything inland.  ­  Up to 911, the FBI did not have an Intelligence unit. Since then, they have expanded and are now heavily reliant on intelligence. ­ Dept. of State, this department makes sure that officials are well informed on aspects they  will be facing in field and with other agency. ­ Dept. Energy, Nukes. Simple as that. ­ Dept. of Treasury * This department has been the most successful regarding terrorism. It goes where the money goes, which feeds the terroristic movements. By tracking the money we can track movements, progress and depletions in radical groups. 3.  This is why no one knows what everyone else is doing. ** In the past this system was a very “leaky plumbing system” and everything was a direct line through the various secretaries. We were, and still are, at the mercy of what the different departments are willing to share with each other. Just like national PDs are unwilling to work with one another. ** This is what was wrong with the 911 commission. The CIA knew something, the NSA knew something, NSA and the FAA knew something. But NO ONE was willing to really work with one another. It typically takes a catastrophe to get people to talk to one another. 4/14/16 Homeland Security 4.  Types of Intelligence 1. Human ­ CIA: Seen as the cadillac of intelligence. This type of Intelligence is the type that  been dying. 2. Signals ­ NSA: Any type of information that is sent electronically, is the province of NSA. Tons of linguists work in this departments. NSA hires all kinds of different people. 3. Imagery ­ Geospatial: Satellites. This intelligence has skyrocketed over the past few decades. There are some limits because it requires public actions ­ but it is still growing rapidly. 4. Measurement ­ Military: This is essentially all of the other senses aside of from seeing.  They use this for “sniffing” out nukes. 5. Open Source ­ Entire Community: Scholars are going through public domain information,  looking for clues to help aid in progress. ** The two most prevalent intelligence that has helped the most in the past few years are  Signals and Open Source. 5. DHS ­  1 of 12 federal employees work, in some capacity, for the DHS. This doesn’t even  count the FBI or NSA. ­ The chart shows the DHS spending. ­ DNDO: Detect Nuclear Detection Office ­ They literally go around in vans, and try to sniff out radioactive material used for building nukes. 6.  Organizational Structure of DHS ­ Secret Service used to its own agency, but now it is a part of DHS. ­ National Guard is still not here because they are still tied to the military. Which is good  because the sheer military power is useful to fight overseas. ** This is a TON of information, power and networking to be coming out of one department. ­ Argument that it has created another level layer of bureaucracy that doesn’t really even help the intelligence that is actually helpful. This is not really the answer. But this is how federal  government always acts in response to an attack. 7.  Problems with the DHS ­ They are essentially playing catch up with hiring, pay, computer programming and more  because they are so new. CIA and FBI have so much more to offer that it is just making it all the more difficult for the DHS to help out even more. ** Are we safer than before we were prior to the 911 attack? Ptobably. But we spent a  TON of money to be so. 4/14/16 Homeland Security 8.  Attacks on US Soil ­ Jihadi attacks are going to go where the big media is. But little do they know, if they were to attack a small town of Iowa would actually cause an even larger splash back because  when NOTHING happens to a town and all of a sudden an attack takes place. It is so  unexpected that it catches media very quickly.
