Ten Years of Being Fleeced by Homeland Security

March 1, 2013

In 2012, total federal spending on education was $67.6 billion, 
while we spent $109 billion on the war in Afghanistan.

THE ISRAELI AGENT MICHAEL CHERTOFF was head of the Department of Homeland Security from 2005 to 2009. An Israeli national and the son of a Mossad agent, Chertoff was the key official who supervised the non-investigation of 9-11 and the destruction of the crucial evidence. Chertoff was behind these crimes.


CHERTOFF THE TERRORIST may be a concept that is difficult to grasp, but it is the truth. Chertoff was a key player in the FBI false-flag bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993 and the mastermind of the 9-11 cover-up. A real investigation of 9-11 would begin with the arrest of Michael Chertoff.

The United States has spent a jaw-dropping $791 billion on “homeland security” since 9/11. To give you a sense of just how big that is, Washington spent an inflation-adjusted $500 billion on the entire New Deal. Despite sucking up a sum of money that could have rebuilt crumbling infrastructure from coast to coast, this new agency and the very concept of “homeland security” have largely flown beneath the media radar -- with disastrous results.

“Homeland Security” - The Trillion-Dollar Concept That No One Can Define

Imagine a labyrinthine government department so bloated that few have any clear idea of just what its countless pieces do. Imagine that tens of billions of tax dollars are disappearing into it annually, black hole-style, since it can’t pass a congressionally mandated audit.

Now, imagine that there are two such departments, both gigantic, and you’re beginning to grasp the new, twenty-first century American security paradigm.

For decades, the Department of Defense has met this definition to a T. Since 2003, however, it hasn’t been alone. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), which celebrates its 10th birthday this March, has grown into a miniature Pentagon. It’s supposed to be the actual “defense” department -- since the Pentagon is essentially a Department of Offense -- and it’s rife with all the same issues and defects that critics of the military-industrial complex have decried for decades. In other words, “homeland security” has become another obese boondoggle.

But here’s the strange thing: unlike the Pentagon, this monstrosity draws no attention whatsoever -- even though, by our calculations, this country has spent a jaw-dropping $791 billion on “homeland security” since 9/11. To give you a sense of just how big that is, Washington spent an inflation-adjusted $500 billion on the entire New Deal.

Despite sucking up a sum of money that could have rebuilt crumbling infrastructure from coast to coast, this new agency and the very concept of “homeland security” have largely flown beneath the media radar -- with disastrous results.
