To clarify - and please correct me if I'm mistaken - I believe when aforce says he has sought "Homeland Security," what he means is he has searched
throughout the whole gambit of agencies and entities that the Department of Homeland Security is meant to unify and render more effective at combating
terrorism, for some tangible sign that real security mechanisms are in place for the prevention of terrorist attacks that could threaten the general
populace, and has not only failed to see any evidence that this is the case with respect to the broader Homeland Security picture (at least with
respect to the type of threat he perceives,) but also with respect to individual local, state, and federal agencies, entities, etc. tasked with the
responsibility of ensuring that security, which he approached first, as any citizen would.
I think he is well aware that contacting the Department of Homeland Security itself is atypical and not the simplest or most pragmatic strategy for
communicating and alleviating perceived threats. However, it seems as though he has tried everything the average citizen would be expected to attempt,
only to find himself running into brick wall after brick wall. Only then did he try to take the matter to a higher authority, and even that has yet to
bear tangible fruit.
That appears to be the point of his message: at all levels, local to federal, bottom to top, both the overall security structure, and the individual
components thereof, failed to sufficiently address, respond to, or in some cases even acknowledge, what he truly perceives to be a genuine threat to
the security of the country and its citizens.
(Is this a fair assessment?) I just don’t want people to assume he went directly to the highest authority, when in fact it appears he did everything
he should have. If he’s telling the truth – and I give people the benefit of the doubt until given reason not to – then his story is deeply
disturbing to me, and should be far more public than it apparently has been.
