The other components of DNI office operate under the guidance of heads of independent departments. The apparent organizational chart of DNI office is grounded on a middle link between confederated model and the intelligence department with line managers over different functions. This services resources with and not daily guidelines of the subordinate structures. This design was introduced by the 2004 Act that formed the office of DNI (United States, 2009).
The current model of DNI office has empowered the intelligence community in charge of strategic planning, budgets, and policy to have control over various elements of the intelligence community. The office of DNI is not directly authorized to control personnel within the various agencies of the intelligence community. The office has plans that focus on their role of integrating the intelligence community. The DNI office seeks to establish efficiencies by improving the effectiveness in services that are shared such as….

National Security Implications of Transnational Organized Crime
The paper deals with three important aspects, one the National Security, second the crime -- organized in many ways, and the third rogue nations that pose a threat. National security is to be understood in multiple contexts. Firstly the physical security of the nation from alien threats, and intrusions, secondly damages to vital infrastructure and thirdly anti-national activities by organizations that may lead to an emergency in the country or at an international level causing diplomatic problems. It must be remembered that the Al-Qaeda was also an organized crime syndicate that was funded by the drug trade from Afghanistan. Secondly organized crimes committed by the companies or organizations that commit crime like ENRON also have its own implications on the financial security. Thirdly rogue nations like Iran, China and Korea pose threats both on the security of the nation and it's infrastructure -- especially….

National Security Council or NSC was created and established by the National Security Act of 1947 (The White House 2006). Later, it incorporated the National Security Act Amendments of 1949 and placed in the Executive Office of the President as part of the Reorganization Plan in the same year. Its chairman is the President and its regular attendees are the Vice President, the Secretary of State, the Secretary of the Treasury, th Secretary of Defense and the Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs (The White House, Longley 2007). The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff is its statutory advisor, while the Director of National Intelligence is its intelligence advisor.

This demonstrates that the state of heightened awareness can lead to quick decisions that are not necessarily misguided even if they ultimately turn out to be somewhat laughable and wholly necessary.
The Boston Police Department's value of neighborhood policing is strongly related to SLU's value of community, as the concept of both is that there is greater strength in the community as a whole through the more active involvement and awareness of each individual member of that community. The other values that are stated in the Boston Police Department's mission statement, such as the agency's commitment to improving the quality of life for all Bostonians, promote general goodwill for the force and for the city it protects, and also assist the agency in its provision of Homeland Defense operations and tasks.

National Security Policies Concerning the President
In this post-911 world, the President of the United States has more concerns than ever regarding national security. Not only are we at war with terrorists, but recent events have shown this to be a much more dangerous world than was previously thought. In this paper we will address the two major national security issues on which the President should be focused.
The first policy the President should be focused is that of terrorism and homeland security. I include them together because we cannot do an adequate job of protecting the United States (U.S.) without taking the fight to the terrorists. "The ush administration's National Security Strategy (NSS) of September 2002 is built on three pillars: the right to take unilateral preemptive military action; the need to maintain global primacy; and the need to spread democracy throughout the world."
We are reminded daily of the danger to….

Therefore, in the context of contemporary threats, forward defence is not an oxymoron but an absolute necessity.
Military Security, Australian Defence Policy, and the War on Terror:
At the simplest level, the participation of ADF in the ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan has increased the risk of terrorism against Australian military forces and civilian targets. On a more complex level, the Commonwealth's participation in the global war on terror is part of a long-term defensive effort to protect the entire Southeast Asian and Pacific region against the international terrorist threat.
Task 2 Question Raised:
The nature of the most significant contemporary threat to international security and the domestic security of the Commonwealth raises the question of whether the Second Wave in the historical evolution of strategic military thought is experiencing a resurgence that is largely incapable of being countered effectively by the most sophisticated military resources relied upon by nations for security….
We will continue to work regionally and with like-minded partners in order to advance negotiations that address the permanent-status issues: security for Israelis and Palestinians; borders, refugees, and Jerusalem. We also seek international support to build the institutions upon which a Palestinian state will depend, while supporting economic development that can bring opportunity to its people. Any Arab-Israeli peace will only be lasting if harmful regional interference ends and constructive regional support deepens. As we pursue peace between Israelis and Palestinians, we will also pursue peace between Israel and Lebanon, Israel and Syria, and a broader peace between Israel and its neighbors. We will pursue regional initiatives with multilateral participation, alongside bilateral negotiations." ("National Security Strategy," 2010) This is showing how the key in promoting peace, security and opportunity throughout the Middle East is to address the Arab-Israeli conflict.
If this were to occur, everyone could begin working together as….
These include agencies such as the CIA and OS, or Operations Coordinating oard.
The growth of these three coordinating mechanisms -- NSC, CIA and OC -- has contributed in some ways to strengthening Presidential leadership in policy-making and to increasing cooperation of agencies under ambassadorial leadership on "country teams" in the field.
The NSC is vital in today's Government to determine foreign Policy. "NSC staff continue to be key foreign policy advisers"
Kurian 6) the importance of the NSC can be gleaned from the following statement:
From the 1970s through the 1990s the National Security Council and its staff have overshadowed the Departments of State and Defense in formulating national security policy. The domestic policy staff in the White House is more important than any of the domestic cabinet departments on most domestic policy issues.
The function of determining foreign policy requires the coordination of various sectors of the intelligence and governmental….

Finally another aspect on which the Security strategy will be focused concerns the idea or promotion of democracy. The United States has always been a front runner in terms of human rights, democracy, and freedom. However, at the moment it is rather difficult to intervene in a country invoking human rights abuses. Indeed, the United Nations is the responsible body for authorizing such interventions. Still, there are other means through which the U.S. can intervene in support of human rights. If the former presidency considered such interventions to be legitimate and justifiable, for the current presidency, the key point will be negotiations and talks. This is one of the main reasons for which it is foreseen that new relations with countries such as Iran or North Korea could be based on talks. It is difficult to say whether these talks will be successful. In any case, as stated above, the….

The systems that were earlier adopted to enhance security deterrence were ignored in the post war era, leading to a paved way for international relations that included policy development and other positive security measures (Huebert 3).
Measures taken by Canada after the war
The military power existence was now fully diminished. The ancient paradigms, which based on military influence, were long gone, and many alternatives were realized, which better procedures and processes had compared to military forces. There was a different approach to matters of security and the states no longer protected themselves only, but also their citizens. Nations and analysts started to consider environmental threats in the Arctic. The argument was that nuclear weapons could lead to an intense destruction of the environment and the physical destructions would be unbearable to a certain extent. The analysts continued to note that the nations that insisted on nuclear weapon development would lead….

The strength of the trade industry, the need for the United States to stand by as a "big brother" as Vietnam rebuilds under China's nose and the American traditions and ideas that are filtering into the nation all bring purpose to that country.
The third purpose of Vietnam is to avoid China's attention. hile it continues to build and grow it becomes more valuable. This is a positive thing for Vietnam however, it also draws more attention from China.
There are many ideologies within the nation of Vietnam. ith the relatively new constitution and the trade industry growing as quickly as it is there are several that stand out.
The constitution of the nation provide benchmarks for the ideals of the nation. One of the first ideals that the people of Vietnam strive to live by is the right to enjoy life and pursue happiness without harming others. It is something that has….
Organizations in the perspective of political systems: in organizations, influence and power are derived from various sources and could be vested in teams of people more than in individuals. Sometimes, teams with a common interest form an alliance and become a coalition to exert a further influence. For example, individuals asserting civic rights by the power of majority used labor unions as traditional approaches. Nevertheless, influential teams are a source of intergroup conflicts that promote a destructive adverse relationship or a helpful competition (Dunphy, 2010).
Power could be applied to gunner control of crucial resources, initiate policies, control technology and establish organizational mission. The ethical values of individuals in power will determine the direction of control or influence. It could be for personal or institutional purposes. This also depends on the presence of balances and checks ingrained in formalized regulations and rules. In the presence of a very diffuse power, an….

Political stability and national security in Nigeria: Challenges and prospects
The research will focus on the effects of political stability and national security in Nigeria. The time span of the study is between 1999 and 2010. This period was chosen to enable the researcher examine the effects of political stability on national security in Nigeria's Fourth Republic which has witnessed peaceful civilian to civilian transition.
This study is divided into five chapters in which the first chapter is the introduction part followed by the second chapter for literature review and research methodology. The third chapter spells out the findings from the research, while the fourth chapter looks at the strategy for political stability to enhance national security; the last chapter concludes the research with some few recommendations being put across.

Global Trends and National Security
The National Intelligence Council's 2008 report Global Trends 2025: A Transformed World attempts to provide policymakers with a summary of the probable, possible, and plausible changes most likely to affect global governance and stability over the course of the next decade and a half. The report covers a wide range of topics, but perhaps the most salient predictions included in the report, which ultimately serve to reveal the shortcomings of the United States' most recent National Security Strategy, are those predictions discussing the United States' assumed continued dominance as a global power even as the next fifteen years see the rise of countries like China and Brazil, the disruptive potential of developing energy technologies, and the geographical expansion of the social, economic, and political issues most conducive for the emergence of terrorist groups. Both the NIC report and the National Security Strategy are flawed and rely….

Smart bombs or laser guided bombs are capable of striking a target that is hidden under the bridge by tracing the necessary trajectory which destroys the target by does leaves the bridge intact. Similar technology is stored in unmanned aircrafts or bomb sniffing devices. It saves the loss of life of innocents in the target areas and also helps the safety of U.S. armed service personnel. Bunker buster bombs, for example, were used to target the caves of Afghanistan where the Taliban were hiding. These were able to penetrate and explode only at specified depths, leaving the landscape unscathed. With this kind of covert warfare, come the issues of propaganda. Political issues often cloud the effective management of war. The less innocent casualties on both sides of the issue, the easier the President can make the case for warfare.

Face recognition technology also a useful advance. Consider this: Mohammed Atta was the terrorist who flew the first plane into the Twin Towers, and was generally considered the head operation for September 11, 2001. Television coverage of the aftermath showed a hidden camera of Atta entering the plane minutes before the ill-fated flight. If his face was recognized and identified as a terrorist, the plane would not have flown that day. Mug shots of terrorists are currently stored in the database. Faces, much like fingerprints, are considered unique to a person. While faces might appear similar, face recognition software pinpoints distances between key points on the face. This software can also penetrate disguises. Hidden or close circuit cameras can identify faces, store the face from each frame, calculate the parameters and access a database that identifies these parameters. If a match appears, it might be possible to apprehend the would-be terrorist. High speed computing makes this possible.
Most of the advances in technology have allowed the President to carry out a warfare that is continually evolving. These advances can be used for both preventive measures, ensure that the target is comprehensively destroyed, without making undue casualties. This makes remarkable improvements in how wars are prosecuted. They also make the job of the President much easier.
