Issue Position: Homeland Security
A Safer and More Secure America Since September 11, our local, state and federal law enforcement officials have taken great strides to make communities, national landmarks, cities, and air and water ports safer and more secure.
Information Sharing Improvements... We've improved our information sharing capabilities between federal and local first responders and law enforcement officials. Within our intelligence community - the CIA, FBI and NSA - we've increased our information sharing capabilities - both vertically within each agency and horizontally with each other.
Winning the War on Terrorism Since 9-11, and our global war against terrorism, we've made more arrests, dismantled al Qaeda terror training camps, disrupted their communication and planning capabilities, prevented and foiled potential terror attacks, broken up sleeper cells and captured members of al Qaeda's top leadership. We've seen al Qaeda shift it's targeting from "hard" to "soft" targets. Much more needs still to be done, but there's no doubt about it, we are winning the war on terrorism.
