Assignment 1: Article Analysis Assignment 1: Article Analysis Crime, crime prevention, and the judicial system are very costly activities for any modern government.

One point of agreement amid citizens and lawmakers alike is this: the cost of criminal activity and crime prevention costs millions in taxpayer dollars each year. This continuous issue can be seen in numerous news outlets on a daily basis. Just recently the Telegraph Media group in the United Kingdom has reported spending 124 billion euros a year on violent crime.
Reorganizing bureaucracy is a typical governmental response to a disaster such as 9/11, in this case, growing evidence suggests that placing so many disparate agencies and departments under one roof has created more problems than it has solved. So with a new administration in place, now is the time to reexamine Homeland Security's structure and make the necessary changes to ensure it can effectively prevent future terrorist attacks and mitigate the results of natural disasters. The unprecedented nature of the current threat to the U.S., and the traditional role of the military in American society, raises challenges for homeland defense (HLD) and homeland security (HLS) planning in the current strategic environment. For military planners at United States Northern Command (and counter-terrorism planners at the Department of Homeland Security [DHS]), specific questions seem dominant: What exactly is the threat?

He had blamed Iraq to be holding terrorists, he had made America believe that Iraq had been under Saddam Hussein’s clutches and that whatever he had to say was law. President Bush had stated in his speech that, “Saddam Hussein is harboring terrorists and the instruments of terror, the instruments of terror of mass death and destruction, and he cannot be trusted. The risk is simply too great that he will use them or provide them to a terror network”. He had made Americans believe that Hussein was creating weapons and developing a nuclear weapon so that he could “blackmail” the world. President Bush had not trusted Saddam Hussein and he didn’t want rest of America to either.
“At the moment, there is a myth in circulation, a fable that goes something like this: Radical terrorists will take advantage of our fussy legality, so we may have to suspend it to beat them. Radical terrorists mock our namby-pamby prisons, so we must make them tougher. Radical terrorists are nasty, so to defeat them we have to be nastier.” (Applebaum). This is the story being used for validating of torture. There is no proof that this story has any truth.
