The emergence of homeland security

 What is the goal of terrorism?   What threat does terrorism (domestic or international) actually pose to the US homeland today?   Should the US be spending so much money and other resources on this threat?   Do you agree with Lepore that “the mystical war against communism finds its counterpart in the mystical war on terrorism.   Mystification leads us to exaggerate threats and ignore costs”.    Why or why not?   Make sure you back up your comments with facts from our videos/readings.
