Special Brief: Homeland Security in an Obama Administration
November 28, 2008
With all the pageantry of presidential conventions, the intensity of the financial crisis and bailing out of Wall Street, the off-again-on-again debates about Iraq and the surge, the discussions on health care, taxes, and energy policy, one critical issue was absent from the national dialogue in the campaigns this year: homeland security.
Given the paucity of discussion on homeland security during the recent presidential campaign, important questions about the future direction of homeland security in America remain unanswered. The Center for Strategic and International Studies is pleased to release a special brief on homeland security in an Obama administration, a forward-looking analysis of what to expect from the next president and his administration.
