Concepts in Homeland Security
In the past decade-plus, the FBI has become an experienced counterterrorism agency. But, has this evolution come at the expense of its traditional domestic law enforcement role? Clearly, the
privacy versus public safety dialogue is ongoing and robust, especially in light of the NSA’s data mining program, PRISM and how the FBI might have used the information to promote terrorism
For this assignment, focus on one or all of the following questions:
(i) Would the overall homeland security mission be better fulfilled if the FBI returned to its roots and a domestic intelligence agency created?
(ii) What should the domestic intelligence architecture look like?
(iii) How does the U.S.’ effort compare to that of other countries?
