house Bill H.R. 6198

Should DHS Have an Office Focused on Countering WMDs?

Argument in favor

Homeland Security needs to be more efficient in coordinating its counterterrorism efforts, and creating a CWMD Office at DHS would be an improvement on the status quo. Making the Securing the Cities program permanent will help keep high-risk urban areas safe from the threat of terrorism.

If this is not duplicative of other agencies, then yes. But it should coordinatw with other agencies, as needed, such as FBI, ATF, Secret Service and CIA.

H.R. 6198 AKA Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction Act I’d strongly recommend and support the passage of the HOUSE bill H.R. 6198 AKA Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction Act of 2018 which would authorize the creation of the Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction (CWMD) Office, comprised of the Office of Health Affairs and the Domestic Nuclear Detection Office, to streamline and improve coordination of anti-terror efforts. It’d also permanently authorize the Securing the Cities program, which provides federal, state, and local governments with resources to detect and prevent nuclear and radiological attacks in high-risk urban areas, such as New York City. Homeland Security needs to be more efficient in coordinating its counterterrorism efforts, and creating a CWMD Office at DHS would be an improvement on the status quo. Making the Securing the Cities program permanent will help keep high-risk urban areas safe from the threat of terrorism. 9*11*18 ...... SneakyPete.

Argument opposed

It’s questionable at best to expect that creating a new CWMD Office in the bureaucracy of the Dept. of Homeland Security will make things run more efficiently after a reorganization.

The biggest WMD is the so-called President. Remove him first.

The military already had a massive budget, and rightfully so. But there are much larger things threatening our nation right now- like the fact that our president is being investigated for colluding with Russia to dictate our election. WMDs are an issue, yes. But they are not a clear and present threat right now in the way that cuber security and privacy are.

    This plan doesn't cover the right things. It's not nuclear we need to worry about. Also, after seeing how ICE is being used, I don't want any other Homeland Security offices created under the current Administration. When we have a more stable person at the helm, more can be done, if needed. We have sufficient things in effect at this time.
