ABSTRACT
This article presents information on a proposal of U.S. President George W. Bush for a new cabinet department, the Department of Homeland Security. He proposed the creation of this department in order to protect the country from future 9/11 attacks. According to the proposal, the President wants to bring together free-standing entities and some of existing departments under one umbrella, with a $37 billion budget and almost 170,000 employees. It is reported that the new department will have a limited intelligence function, but it is unclear how a new intelligence organization will help when the existing ones have not been sharing information. But few Americans view that it is more important to reform the Central Intelligence Agency and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
