“…under pressure from Democrats, President George W. Bush in June 2002 announced the creation of a new cabinet agency called the Department of Homeland Security whose mission is to consolidate dozens of federal agencies under a super security agency. ‘Right now, as many as a hundred different government agencies have some responsibilities for homeland security–and no one has final accountability,’ Bush said. …Some 170,000 federal employees would be part of the new agency and it would be funded by $38 billion in budgets from the agencies it would absorb.” [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
