Unfortunately the CIA had created the plans before Kennedy was in office, and they did not share all of the information with him and manipulated him into approving it. The blame for this failure lies with both Kennedy and the CIA. The motivation behind the invasion was the United States’ tremendous fear of communism. “I mean, now we look back on that and it can seem sort of ridiculous that we ever had a time when we thought the Communists were going to take over the world. But that is indeed what most Americans thought at the time” (Rasenberg 1).
When George W. Bush was proposing to congress why the Department of Homeland Security needed to formally become a government department he explained that, “The President proposes to create a new Department of Homeland Security, the most significant transformation of the U.S. government in over half-century by largely transforming and realigning the current confusing patchwork of government activities into a single department whose primary mission is to protect our homeland. The creation of a Department of Homeland Security is one more key step in the President’s national strategy for homeland security” (Bush “The Department” 1). In 2002 the Department of Homeland Security formally became a department of government after congress passed the Homeland Security Act (Homeland Security – Creation of the department of Homeland Security). The Homeland Security Act of 2002 states that, “the primary mission of the Department is to prevent terrorist attacks within the United States, reduce the vulnerability of the United States to terrorism, and to minimize the damage, and assist in the recovery, from terrorist attacks that do occur
.The greatest similarity I see between Big Brother in 1984 and the US president is the control of information. . In both 1984 and U.S.A, the leaders are using the technology to spy on their citizen for example in 1984 they used the telscerean and in the USA they use NSA Recently there was a article about the NSA.

But in 1971 Daniel Ellsberg leaked documents known as the Pentagon Papers to the New York Times, these documents showed US history and involvement in the Vietnam War. The papers showed the the US Military’s enlarged scale of operation of the war from the bombing being conducted in Laos, Cambodia and the raids in North Vietnam. With the leak of the Pentagon Papers, David Young the administrative assistant to Henry Kissinger published a memo for the creation of the “The Plumbers”. The plumbers consisted of persons who specialized in security and intelligence gathering in order to plug the wholes were the “leaks” were coming
When the three branches of government were created a system of “check and balances” was built into the Constitution in order to keep one branch of government from becoming too large and too powerful. Actions that are taken by one branch of government affect the other branches, thereby introducing “oversight”. The intelligence community has both internal and external oversight. The internal oversight comes from the CIA Inspector General that is embedded within the intelligence community. The external oversight comes from both the executive and legislative branches of the government.
The Warsaw Pact was, however, the first step in a more systematic plan to strengthen the Soviet hold over its satellites, a program undertaken by the Soviet leaders Nikita Khrushchev and Nikolay Bulganin after their assumption of power early in 1955. The treaty also served as a lever to enhance the bargaining position of the Soviet Union in international diplomacy, an inference that may be drawn by the concluding article of the treaty, which stipulated that the Warsaw agreement would lapse when a general East-West collective-security pact should come into
In Congress, Nixon was able to secure a Senate seat by implying that the opposing candidate was a Communist sympathizer because she voted against the HUAC. Nixon accused Alger Hiss, a convicted former spy for the Soviets, and pressed the HUAC to go further into the investigations until Alger Hiss was proven guilty. This investigation gave Nixon a national reputation and he was labeled as a young star. The views of Nixon made him acceptable to east and west in the early 1950s. However, Nixon was a man that would go to extreme lengths and tricks if it achieved political success.
NSA hides the fact that they are monitoring on US citizens without the warrant as they find some connection between the person monitored and some illegal activity to justify their monitoring. At first, after the 9/11, President George W. Bush started a program of mass monitoring of US communication. He had started it without FISA Court’s knowledge and when the population find out about this Congress had to create and enact the FISA Amendment Act of 2008 and inside was the crucial Section 702 that, by law, validates mass monitoring over the last 7 years. These communication monitoring systems rely on these two statutes: FISA Amendment Act of 2008 (Section 702) and Patriot Act (Section 215). These statutes authorize modern PRISM system to collect metadata and content from the telephone companies.

In 2001, the Bush Administration authorized the National Security Agency (NSA) to launch a wiretapping program which congress ratified and expanded. This new wiretapping program gave the NSA power to monitor Americans international phone calls and emails without the need of a warrant. The new program goes against an act that was passed in the 1960’s and 70’s. The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). This act, which was enacted by congress, regulated the NSA conduct of intelligent surveillance inside the United States and generally required the NSA to seek warrants before monitoring American’s communications.
The Article of confederation drafted in 1777. The Arise of war was a top priority however, instead of increasing it decreased by fear of central authority and expansive land claims by states before was it was ratified in 1781. rephase THIS--“It coin money but lacked the ability to levy taxes or regulate commerce”( Foner 195) and issues that influenced A new constitution in 1787.It had a state government, important laws, and guaranteed a few rights for its citizens.

Another major product of the Warsaw Pact was the “New Course” system that replaced the old Stalin-influenced COMNIFORM and revolutionized the internal eastern bloc relations. For the remainder of the essay, multiple different situations are addressed in other Eastern non-Soviet European nations and the effects that Khrushchev’s “New Course” policy had are examined. With this scope of investigation, secondary sources were the primary means of information as they provided the most accurate overview of relations between the Non-Soviet Warsaw Pact members (NSWP) and the
