DHS and NYC: Mars and Venus?

Filed under: Intelligence and Info-Sharing,Investigation & Enforcement — by Christian Beckner on June 9, 2006

The NYU School of Law’s Karen Greenberg has an excellent, provocative guest post over at The Washington Note, on the subject of the relationship between DHS and New York City. The key paragraph:

Alarming about the DHS public rebuke towards New York is not just the agency’s contempt for New York or its apparent disregard for operational input. The shortchanging of the country’s primary terrorist target is most disturbing for what it reveals about DHS’s half-baked approach to counterterrorism. Good counterterrorism is about human intelligence, about coordination, and above all about serious consideration of the potential threats. It is not about spin, or about who has the most control, the most toys, or the most political favors to dispense.

Definitely read the full post.
