Mission Creep: DHS Agency Abandons Fighting Terrorism, Shifts to Hiring Police, Taking Over America

Aaron Dykes
January 24, 2012

A new white paper presented to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence carves out an 'evolving mission' for Homeland Security that moves away from fighting terrorism and towards growing a vast domestic intelligence apparatus that would expand integration with local/state agencies and private-public partnerships already underway via regional fusion centers.

Crafted by the Aspen Institute Homeland Security Group, co-chaired by former DHS chief Michael Chertoff and composed of a who's who of national security figures, the report outlines a total mission creep, as the title "Homeland Security and Intelligence: Next Steps in Evolving the Mission" implies.

Significantly, it puts on paper and into the Congressional record a proposed transition from outwardly dealing with the threats posed by terrorism towards intelligence gathering "focused on more specific homeward-focused areas." That is, the homegrown, domestic threats we've heard so much about from Big Sis already.

In short, it confirms the intentions of key insiders-- including former NSA/CIA head Michael Hayden, former Rep. Jane Harmon, former Secretary of State Madeline Albright, 9/11 Commissioners Philip Zelikow and Richard Ben-Viniste, former National Security Advisor Samuel Berger and others-- to flesh out a plan we have already seen developing from an outside perspective-- namely, to build a domestic Stasi-like force to takeover, monitor and control the population.

Moreover, the media has reported on this changed mission-- towards the full spectrum domination of the people under a patently-fascist framework-- with the same calm as the weekly weather forecast.


Achieving this new aim includes co-opting local law enforcement and other regional agencies.

"As the threat grows more localized," the report reads, "the federal government's need to train, and even staff, local agencies, such as major city police departments, will grow."

That's right, the feds want to oversee the hiring of your local police.

Fusion Centers, now spread across the nation, have already infected police agencies and local governments with a federalization takeover mentality. A Dec. 2010 Aspen Homeland Security Group report, quoting the Superintendent of the New Orleans Police Department, recommends that "every mayor and governor of a major city in the country should have to attend a DHS-sponsored emergency management course where various scenarios -- like hurricanes, levy breaks, and explosions -- are exercised."

But directing local police departments, mayors and governors is only the beginning. Indeed, the Aspen group envisions the 'foundation for a separate DHS intelligence mission' by building upon 'decentralized' partnerships with the private sector as well.
