Homeland Security Strategy & Policy

Homeland security and national security are two sides of the same coin; and the United States must formulate and implement the mutually-reinforcing strategies and policies that will serve both of these ends at once.  The homeland security enterprise and its architecture is complex and multi-layered, incorporating federal institutions and actors, plus interagency cooperation between and among them, as well partners at the State and local levels, and the effective lash-up of their efforts at the tip of the spear with those based in Washington, DC.  Unity of effort is the overarching principle that must inform the exercise, with the goal of achieving truly national outcomes (synchronization and synergies) that will serve to best protect the country, whether from natural disasters or terrorist attack.
