Homeland Insecurity by Bookviews.com (Pick of the Month)
December 1, 2008 — Print this Page
One of the priorities everyone agrees upon is national security, but two former members of the Federal Bureau of Investigation have written a book to argue that the FBI has, after a hundred years of steadfast allegiance to the Constitution, become thoroughly politicized by the changes imposed with the creation of the Homeland Security Department. Homeland Insecurity by Terry D. Turchie, former Deputy Assistant Director of the Counterterrorism Division, and Dr. Kathleen M. Puckett, a founder of the FBI National Security Division’s Behavior Analysis Program, ($25,95, History Publishing Company) have authored a compelling and devastating look at the attacks by power-hungry members of Congress on the FBI that were intended to discredit it for personal, political gain and how the placing of CIA personnel over FBI operations threatens to divert its mission from pursuing criminals and terrorists, from investigating wrong-doing by members of Congress, and from operating free of the temporary political objectives depending on who is in power. This is, in so many ways, an important expose and discussion of the present and future of the FBI. http://bookviews.com/
