Our Safety and the Department of Homeland Security

In recent weeks we have had two events that had the potential to become serious terrorist attacks. In both cases, we had information from the parents of the suspects. Even then, the department of Homeland Security was not able to take charge, and prevent a potentially serious terrorist threat. In one case, the potential terrorist were able to leave American Soil and had to captured by a foreign government, in the other the terrorist was able arrive in American Soil to cause problems in a flight within minutes of its landing at a US Airport. The Department of Homeland Security, with all their sophisticated tracking, collecting and monitoring abilities, were helpless in both cases.

All this makes me wonder as to the actual purpose of the Department of Homeland Security. Is it securing our homeland, our country and its people, or is it to spy on Americans collecting anything that they can about them in the name of Homeland Security. If the first, then they are failing miserably. I would have to rate them a Z- since even an F is too high for them. Even an F student will get an answer right when he is given the answer which the DHS seems unable to do. If the latter, then they are doing that which is specifically dis-allowed by our constitution that  guarantees us certain in-alienable freedoms. Also, I wonder, what the end purpose of this spying will lead to. This compels me to think about a poem attributed to Pastor Martin Niemoller about the inactivity of the German intellectuals following the Nazi rise to power.

“They came for the communists, and I did not speak out – because I was not a communist;
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out – because I was not a trade unionist;
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out – because I was not a Jew;
Then they came for me – and there was no one left to speak out for me.”

Is this what is to become of the future of our nation. Slaves yet again to the tyranny of government that our forefathers gave their lives so to try to protect us from.
