BUILD CASTLES IN THE AIR

On June 7, I wrote a post on the Department of Homeland Security. I found these two interesting articles:

The Department of Homeland Security is America's Maginot Line by Robert Tracinski. [Via Fredrik Norman.] Here is a quote:

"America, with the most powerful military in the world, has chosen to retreat into a bunker of expanded police powers and "homeland security" programs."

Department of Bureaucratic Security by Glenn Reynolds. [Via InstaPundit.] Here is a quote:

"Wars are won by destroying the enemy, not by playing defense. Now we've got a huge, multi-multi-billion-dollar government department dedicated to playing defense."
