Since Sept. 11, any person that works for the white house is going to get very very rich.

Security, or should I say Terror, is now big business.

Protecting the American public is making some agencies and security firm members overnight millionaires.

After 9/11, President Bush set up the Department of Homeland Security.

It is attracting more and more money from the congress. Therefore, the more terror attacks or even the threat will make money for the department.

It should be renamed Department of Ripping off American people.

Profiting From Terror

This two-part series examines how former domestic security officials have benefited from their connections to the federal agencies they once helped supervise.

Contractor Pay Lures Counterterror Officials

Dozens of members of the Bush administration's domestic security team, assembled after the 2001 terrorist attacks, are now collecting bigger paychecks in different roles: working on behalf of companies that sell domestic security products, many directly to the federal agencies the officials once helped run.

Former Antiterror Officials Find Industry Pays Better

At least 90 officials at the Department of Homeland Security or the White House Office of Homeland Security — including the department's former secretary, Tom Ridge; the former deputy secretary, Adm. James M. Loy; and the former under secretary, Asa Hutchinson — are executives, consultants or lobbyists for companies that collectively do billions of dollars' worth of domestic security business.

More than two-thirds of the department's most senior executives in its first years have moved through the revolving door. That pattern raises questions for some former officials.

"People have a right to make a living," said Clark Kent Ervin, the former inspector general of the department...


yeah, make a living Clark Kent, but please dont make a killing, literally.

Here are the names of all those who made a lot of money from scaring us all:

War has always been big business. Hell, who do you think benefitted from the Civil War? American Industrialists, European Bankers, European Nobles, ect.

World Wars 1 and 2 both fed the pockets of bankers, arms manufacturers, and almost every industry.

War sells, and everyone has been buying.

And . . . that is why wars have to be kept warm and ready to strike anywhere in the world.

Occurs the best place to start and support wars is now the middle east . . .

Wars keeps my husband job in demand and making good money. . .

Still I am opposed to the middle east conflict and what war for profits does to other nations.
