In the last seven years the government has undergone the largest reorganization since the New Deal.  The newly created and altered National Security and Homeland Security agencies and their actions as well as the laws passed since 2001 will dominate every aspect of American life for years to come.  This course examines the changes made in the Intelligence Community, Law Enforcement and Homeland Security establishments as well as the relevant legislation and Executive Orders.  The goal will be to understand the changes, but also determine what needs to be improved and modified in the future.

Among other matters, the course will cover the Intelligence Reform Act, the FBIs new National Security Branch and DOJs National Security Division, the Secure Border Initiative, Airline Transportation Safety Act and Maritime Transportation Safety Act, Public Health Safety and Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response Act, Critical Infrastructure Protection, National Response Framework and National Incident Management System.
