The opposition to the Homeland Security Department is becoming more vocal. John J. Duncan Jr., a Republican Congressman from Tennessee stated he might oppose the department. There are other rumblings on both sides of the aisles. After an analysis of "what went wrong" leading up to 9/11, the conclusion that we need more bureaucracy is flawed but expected. Bush and his team need to do something, take some action, make a bold decision. A new department is not going to stop the turf battles, the lack of cooperation or the coordination of intelligence. But it's a more acceptable solution for Washington than finding and fixing the immediate problems.
