The Department of Homeland Security has a vital mission: to secure the nation from the many threats we face. This requires the dedication of more than 230,000 employees in jobs that range from aviation and border security to emergency response, from cybersecurity analyst to chemical facility inspector. Our duties are wide-ranging, but our goal is clear – keeping America safe.
This Department of Homeland Security’s overriding and urgent mission is to lead the unified national effort to secure the country and preserve our freedoms. While the Department was created to secure our country against those who seek to disrupt the American way of life, our charter also includes preparation for and response to all hazards and disasters.

LOL it is oil in the water. Definitely should be able to be handled by the EPA, Coast Guard, BP, and some scientists. But, just like everything with government, it just won't go right without a bunch of people standing around watching everyone else do what could have been done in the first place.
It is oil, it is not a hurricane or anything that is going to just crush the American people. So please tell me what exactly DHS will do to help any of this other than stand around and try to look important?
Originally posted by Peace PipeOh so what you are saying is that the government is so poorly organized that it didn't give the EPA the financial power it needs to deal with an environmental problem?
This isn't to bash Obama. I don't hate the guy. I just disagree with him. I just bent the thread this way to add a little humor to the fact that the government is not very efficient. If Bush was still President and made the decison to involve DHS then I would have turned it into a joke about how stupid Bush is.
Well the Annointed One...
That man is right on top of things. Thank God we have a leader like Obama. Obama for NWO leader.
Obama sends Homeland Security to Oil Spill. LOL!
