Note: There are 2 parts to this assignment.

Part 1

Although homeland security strategy (HLS) was subsumed into the 2010 national security strategy, the following original 2002 objectives remain essentially unchanged:

  • Prevent terrorist attacks within the United States
  • Reduce America’s vulnerability to terrorism
  • Minimize the damage, and recover from attacks that do occur

In 100–200 words, answer each of the following questions:

  • Of these 3 objectives, which do you think is most important, and why?
  • Of these 3 objectives, which do you think is most difficult to achieve, and why?
  • Of these 3 objectives, which one falls mostly within the responsibility of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)?

Responses to Other Students: Review at least 2 other posts. Do you agree or disagree with your peers' responses?

Part 2

  • Has the electronic scanner improved airport security? Why or why not?
  • Will the electronic scanner prevent another hijacking? Why or why not?
  • Is the investment made in added security measures worth the impact on passengers?
