Like the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor some 60 years ago, the devastating attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon 11 September 2001 jolted U.S. citizens out of their complacency and attitude that "it can't happen here." For those of us living in both 1941 and 2001, no longer was the war "over there." Both attacks struck the core of the nation's economic, military, and political institutions and both would leave an indelible mark on the citizens of the United States.
The shocking and tragic events of September, 11 proved to be but the tip of the iceberg. On 8 October 2001, the President signed Executive Order 13228, Establishing the Office of Homeland Security and the Homeland Security Council, which established the Office of Homeland Security (OHS). Homeland Security (HLS (Hue Lightness Saturation) A color space that is closely related to HSB, except that Brightness is called Lightness and is measured from 0 to 1 rather than from 0 to 100%. See HSB. ) consists of two broad mission areas: Homeland Defense (HLD HLD Hold (baseball relief pitcher statistic)

For example, an ISDN router with dial on demand will automatically dial up the ISP when it senses IP traffic destined for the Internet. ) serves as the executive agent for HLD with support from other federal and state agencies while the Federal Emergency Management Agency The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is the federal agency responsible for coordinating emergency planning, preparedness, risk reduction, response, and recovery. The agency works closely with state and local governments by funding emergency programs and providing technical (FEMA) serves as an executive agency for Domestic Support issues with the support of DOD and other agencies.
The OHS has the primary mission of developing coordinating, and implementing a comprehensive national strategy to secure the United States from terrorist threats or attacks. Efforts to execute Executive Order 13228 have affected nearly every aspect of our daily lives. We are still feeling these impacts on Wall Street, Pennsylvania Avenue and Rodeo Drive not only with regard to increased security but also with the cost of the Global War on Terrorism Terrorist acts and the threat of Terrorism have occupied the various law enforcement agencies in the U.S. government for many years.

Today U.S. citizens live with roadblocks and safety zones installed around our government buildings and increased security in our cities and airports and seaports Additionally we have seen our military forces and those of our allies dispatched to Afghanistan. This movement of troops, the subsequent operations, and the successes of these military forces have for the moment allowed the United States and her allies to regain the initiative There we continue to push and force AI Qaeda from its caves and safe houses. We have taken the fight the enemy-and since October 2001 also have moved U.S. to forces into Pakistan, the Phil Philippines, and other locations. Additional deployments will follow as the War on Terrorism continues, and it will go on for some time.
This edition of the Military Intelligence Professional Bulletin (MIPB MIPB Military Intelligence Professional Bulletin (Journal for intelligence professionals published by the US Army Intelligence Center) ) focuses on many aspects of HLS. As President George W. Bush said during a speech at the Citadel, We have to think differently. The enemy who appeared on September eleventh seeks to avoid our strengths and constantly searches for our weaknesses so America is required once again to change the way our military thinks and fights. The enemies worldwide got a chance to see the new American military on October 7. Our military cannot and will not be evaded."
In such a diverse and dynamic society as ours, HLS issues, especially those addressing the USA PATRIOT Act (Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act) and Intelligence Oversight issues, remain controversial. MIPB serves as a conduit between the Intelligence Center and Ml professionals and as such has sought input from a variety of sources regarding Homeland Security. The articles submitted do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of the U.S. Army, Department of Defense, or the U.S. Government.
Regarding the articles in this issue of MIPB, although each writer may not specifically refer to the orders, regulations, and policies listed below, all intelligence activities must adhere to Intelligence Oversight policy. Executive Order 12333, United States Intelligence Activities, and the Crimes Reporting Memorandum of Understanding A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) is a legal document describing a bilateral or multilateral agreement between parties. It expresses a convergence of will between the parties, indicating an intended common line of action and may not imply a legal commitment. between the Department of Justice and Intelligence Community members stipulate that certain activities of intelligence components that affect U.S. persons be governed by procedures issued by the agency head and approved by the Attorney General. AR 381-10, U.S. Army Intelligence Activity, establishes the responsibility for intelligence activities concerning U.S. persons, includes guidance on the conduct of intrusive intelligence collection techniques, and provides reporting procedures for certain federal crimes.
AR 381-10 implements--
* Executive Order 12333.
* DOD Directive 5240.1, DOD Intelligence Activities.
* DOD Regulation 5240.1-R, Procedures Governing the Activities of DOD Intelligence Components That Affect United States Persons.
* DOD Instruction 5240.4, Reporting of Counterintelligence coun·ter·in·tel·li·gence
The branch of an intelligence service charged with keeping sensitive information from an enemy, deceiving that enemy, preventing subversion and sabotage, and collecting political and military information. and Criminal Violations.
AR 381-10 applies to the Active Army, the U.S. Army National Guard, and the U.S. Army Reserve. It also applies to Army intelligence components and those non-intelligence components conducting intelligence activities.
This issue also includes an extract of a memorandum signed by Lieutenant General Robert W. Noonan, Jr., Subject: Collecting Information on U.S. Persons, on 5 November 2001. In the memorandum, LTG LTG
lieutenant general Noonan offered the following guidance:
a. Contrary to popular belief, there is no absolute ban on intelligence components collecting U.S. person information. Rather, EO 12333 and implementing policy in DOD 5240. 1-R and AR 381-10 regulate that collection.
b. Intelligence components may collect U.S. person information when the component has the mission (or "function") to do so, and the information falls within one of the categories listed in DOD 5240.1-R and AR 381-10.
LTG Noonan also explained that--MI may receive in formation from anyone, anytime. If the information is U.S. person in formation, MI may retain that information if it meets the two-part test discussed in paragraph b above.
Finally, the subject is again addressed in this issue by a memorandum signed by LTG Claudia J. Kennedy, Subject: Policy Guidance for Intelligence Support to Force Protection in CONUS, on 19 February 1999.
