Department of Homeland Security turning into The Ministry of Nearly Everything 


The directive also lets Homeland Security take charge of a peacetime outbreak of a major disease that threatens widespread risk to human health or the economy, Stump said. The new plan could allow a faster and more coordinated response, he said.

Responsibility for food safety is scattered among many agencies, and the initiative "crosses over agencies" so the response to both terror and to nonterror disasters would be comprehensive, Buchan said. Cabinet secretaries still would be responsible for their sections of the overall plans, she said.

Right. Not that the fact DHS is going to be filled with party hacks (in the absence of civil service protection and after the union busting) would have anything to do with all this....
