Defending Our Homeland By Phyllis Naegeli 1 Most adults will always remember the events of September 11, America came together in sorrow, shock, and support of one another. We turned to our government for answers. How could this happen? Will it happen again? What do we do now?
2 The first step the federal government took was to pass the Patriot Act. This gives the Attorney General additional powers when national security is threatened. Now the government can secretly and indefinitely detain non-citizens without right to counsel. Also, wiretaps can be obtained against a person rather than a specific phone number. This act also gives the government access to an individual's internet service provider records including web surfing records. Law enforcement officials can get and use a search warrant without notifying the occupant of the property. What was the first action the government took after September 11, 2001? a.It created the Department of Homeland Security. b.It started to gather intelligence c.It passed the Patriot Act. d.It created the Threat Advisory System. Which of the following is not a part of the Patriot Act? a.The government can detain citizens indefinitely and without counsel when national security is threatened. b.When national security is threatened, officials can get and use a search warrant without notifying the occupant of the property. c.Wiretaps can be obtained against a person rather than a specific phone number. d.The government can detain non-citizens indefinitely and without counsel when national security is threatened.
3 Soon after, the president proposed creating a new cabinet level department - Homeland Security. On March 1, 2003, a massive reorganization of our government occurred, setting this plan into action. The Department of Homeland Security is responsible for protecting us from future terrorist attacks. The United States has a population of more than 300 billion people. We have land area of 3,500,000 square miles. Our borders with other countries stretch more than 7,500 miles. Additionally, over 95,000 miles of marine borders surround us. A coordinated effort across America is needed to keep us safe. The Department of Homeland Security is responsible for protecting us from future terrorist attacks. a.False b.True
4 Within the Department of Homeland Security is The Division of Information Analysis and Infrastructure Protection. Working with the FBI, the CIA, and the National Security Agency, information from across the globe is intercepted, decoded, and analyzed. When a threat is found in this intelligence, a decision is made on the accuracy of the information. If the threat is credible, the government takes action. How does the government find out about possible terrorist attacks? a.Meeting daily to discuss the possibility b.Spending money on security c.Gathering and analyzing intelligence d.Practicing emergency response plans
5 One of the most visible ways Homeland Security helps us is through the Threat Advisory System. When a report of a possible attack comes in, the warning system is used to put security plans into action. The Threat Advisory System uses five levels to inform the nation of the risk of a terrorist attack. The first level - green - indicates a low risk, the second level - blue - signifies a guarded risk, the third level - yellow - indicates an elevated risk, the fourth - orange - indicates a high risk, and the fifth - red - indicates a severe risk. To assist us as the level rises, the department works with businesses, the transportation industry, the Coast Guard, and police, fire, and emergency management personnel to be on alert The Patriot Act created the Threat Advisory System to warn us of the increased risk of a terrorist attack. a.False b.True for suspicious activity. Plans are developed to help prevent an attack by increasing security. In addition, emergency response procedures are practiced to increase our ability to recover should an attack occur.
6 Securing our homeland is a high priority today. The disagreements come when we try to decide the best way to do this. Some people feel that the government is infringing on the civil rights of people by increasing security, especially in our transportation industry. They feel that searches conducted on people and their personal belongings invade our privacy and are unnecessary. Those who agree with the increased security say that it is a necessary inconvenience to protect our country. The Patriot Act is under scrutiny from civil rights leaders and organizations. They believe it violates the constitution. They also feel it gives the government permission to abuse the civil rights of individuals. Supporters of the Patriot Act feel that the government must have the ability to stop terrorists before they strike. With thousands of lives at stake, the risk of possible abuses is an acceptable price to pay to keep America safe. In addition, they feel that these new powers will help people to live without fear of attack. Civil rights organizations feel that the Threat Advisory System infringes on the civil rights of people. a.False b.True Which of the following statements would be made by a person who agrees with the provisions of the Patriot Act? a.With thousands of lives at stake, the possible abuses are worth the safety these provisions give us. b.The Patriot Act violates the constitution. c.The provisions will not make people feel safer. d.The Act gives the government permission to violate civil rights. Which of the following statements would a person who disagrees with the increased security in our transportation industry make? a.We need to be able to recover after an attack. b.Searches of individuals and their belongings invade their privacy. c.Increased security protects our civil rights. d.The inconvenience is necessary to help prevent attacks.
7 One of the primary functions of a government is to protect the people it governs. When America was attacked on September 11, 2001, we felt vulnerable for the first time within our own borders. The question that arises is "Are we safer now than we were before?"
