Abstract:

We are a nation at risk from a new and changing threat. The terrorist threat to America comes in many forms and has many places to hide. Terrorists attack us and exploit our vulnerabilities because of the freedoms we hold dear. The U.S. governments most important mission is to protect the homeland from future terrorist attacks. To counter the threat, the president established a Homeland Security Department. The Homeland Security Department will consolidate 22 agencies with 170,000 workers into the new department, which constitutes the largest reorganization of government since the Department of Defense was created half a century ago.
