IMO AOC is a revolutionary subversive sitting in the House of Representatives after having insincerely sworn to uphold and defend the Constitution of the US and laws legally enacted under it.
BUT, she can be right on some issues. It IS within the bounds of possibility that she could be correct on a few things.
She says she wants to see the Department of Homeland Security dis-established. If by that she means the department rather than its component parts, then I agree with her and always did.
This monstrosity was cobbled together in the same wave of hysteria following 9/11 that saw the enactment of the Patriot Act, massive illegal wiretapping of Americans and the subsequent "unleashing" upon the American people of such creatures as Comey, Clapper and Brennan.
All the significant parts of DHS existed and functioned well before 9/11. The successful surprise attack on the US was not caused by a failure of coordination among these groups.
It was caused by massive HUMINT collection failures in the IC and the FBI. The reason these failures occurred was simply a lack of courage and imagination in the bureaucratic leadership of these agencies.
And guess what! None of the significant IC agencies were placed under DHS when it was created. The directors of these outfits simply told GW Bush that they would go public against the move if he tried to bring CIA, State INR, NSA, etc. under this "elephant created by a committee."
DHS has an analytic bureau? Sure it does! It is yet another analytic bureau duplicating the functions of all the others in, CIA, FBI, etc. The DHS analytic outfit has NO authority over any IC unit including the FBI.
Get rid of DHS and return its components to their prior "owners." pl
