Description




In the last nine years the US Government has undergone its largest reorganization since the New Deal.  The laws passed since 2001, as well as the recently created Office of the Director of National Intelligence and Department of Homeland Security along with the modified CIA, FBI and Department of Justice National Security Divisions, 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, Patriot and Electronic Surveillance, the FBIs National Security Branch and DOJs National Security Division, the Secure Border Initiative, Airline Transportation Safety Act, Maritime Transportation Safety Act, Public Health Safety and Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response Act, Critical Infrastructure Protection, the National Response Framework and the National Incident Management System.
