When the Naval Postgraduate School started their "Homeland Security Affairs" journal, Bellavita, the journal's executive editor, published the following article in the first issue.

 He calls his observations of the periods prior and subsequent to the false flag attacks of 9/11, 7/7 and Madrid, the "Issue-Attention Cycle".  But in reading his article, you'll recognize it in its more familiar form: Problem - Reaction - Solution.


Changing Homeland Security: The Issue-Attention Cycle
Christopher Bellavita, Ph.D.

The July 7, 2005 attacks on London inescapably direct public attention to our own transportation system. Everyone getting on a bus or train will look a little more carefully at objects that seem out of place or at people who look a bit suspicious. Public officials
will call for more equipment, more people, and more spending for transportation security

It happened in the U.S. after the Madrid bombings in 2004. But eventually – as also happened after Madrid – public attention and vigilance will wane. Transportation security advocates will again have to battle for resources against competing homeland security interests.

The attacks in Madrid and London illustrate Homeland Security’s slide from the apex of the national domestic policy agenda into the mundane world of grants, bureaucracy and interest groups. But this is not a bad thing. It is an affirmation of the profound trust Americans continue to place in their public safety professionals. It is also the natural dynamic of the Issue-Attention cycle.

More than 30 years ago, Anthony Downs wrote about a cycle that affects many domestic public policy problems.1 Downs argued that certain issues follow a predictable five stage process: pre-problem, alarmed discovery, awareness of the costs of making significant progress, gradual decline of intense public interest, and the post problem stage. Before the London attacks, homeland security was on the cusp of Stage Five. After the attacks, it revisited Stage Two. Before too many months pass, it is likely to recall the difficulties of Stage Three, make a brief return trip through Stage Four, and – if there are no more attacks – settle into Stage Five.

We have been at war with the terrorists since September 11, 2001. They have been at war with us since October 23, 1983, when 241 U.S. service members were killed in Lebanon. During the almost 20 years before the nation formally joined the Terrorism Wars, homeland security was in Stage One of the Issue-Attention Cycle: the pre-problem stage. A relatively small group of people were alarmed by the rising threat of terrorism. As has been well documented in the post 9/11 era, most of those calls to pay attention were ignored.

(Did he just say that Homeland Security was started in 1981?)

After the pre-problem phase comes Stage Two: Alarmed Discovery and a euphoric enthusiasm to do something quickly about the problem. Alarmed Discovery is triggered by an especially dramatic event, such as September 11th. At this point, the rest of the nation discovers – or in the case of the London bombings, recalls – the problem. Political leaders rise up to demand and to oversee an immediate solution. They are driven by a can-do ethos that asserts no problem is too big or complex to be solved. We just need to get the right people working together as a team, come up with a plan, and simply fix the problem. Stage Two of the Cycle is characterized both by shock and by the unyielding confidence that we can do something to right the wrongs that allowed the problem to happen.

After September 11th, we saw the largest reorganization of the national government in over half a century. We allocated rivers of money to homeland security, even taking away funds from other public safety programs. Interestingly, very few states and cities – with the notable exceptions of New York City, Washington D.C., and a few other cities – made such dramatic structural or resource changes. This was an early signal that perhaps most of the country is not as concerned about homeland security as are the jurisdictions with the most vulnerable targets

In Stage Three of the Cycle, there is a growing awareness of the costs of making significant progress. The nation has not been attacked in almost four years. We have spent more than 100 billion dollars on homeland security. Hundreds of thousands of people have now added “homeland security” to their job responsibilities.  (AKA: Reaction)

Even so, books, articles and reports continue to point out how vulnerable our borders, ports, transportation systems, schools, public health, food supply, chemical industry, and infrastructure are to terrorist attacks. Our spending and our programs focus mostly on preparing to respond more effectively and efficiently to the next attack. We still do not have a national plan to prevent terrorism. We do not even have a shared vocabulary for prevention.

The executive branch of the national government is embarking
on a multi-year effort to convince states and cities
to obey the expanding dictates of
Homeland Security Presidential Direction (HSPD)

if they want to continue to receive homeland security funding.

(Sounds like mafia "pay the protection money" in exchange for not having your business torched, doesn't it?)

(Article continues...)

...The Issue-Attention Cycle continues. The post problem stage of the Cycle becomes Version 2.0 of a new pre-problem stage. Anyone paying attention can hear homeland security specialists worrying about ports, public health, food supply vulnerabilities, and more.

The country will be attacked again – next month, next year, or in the next decade.
After the Alarmed Discovery that follows the attack, there will be another period of “euphoric enthusiasm” to dramatically change what we are doing now.

We wonder why they continue with false flag terror attacks: this guy just explained it all.

Professor Bert Tussing was born in Portsmouth, VA, the son of a career Naval Officer. He graduated with honors from The Citadel in 1975 and was commissioned a Second Lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps. During a 24 year career in the Marines, Professor Tussing served operationally with the 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing; the 2nd Marine Division; Marine Aviation Weapons and Tactics Squadron One; Marine Helicopter Squadron One (where he was designated a Presidential Command Pilot); and with the 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit (Special Operations Capable). Over the course of his career he participated in multiple humanitarian relief exercises in the Caribbean; Operation Urgent Fury in Grenada; operations as a part of the Multinational Force in Beirut; Operations Provide Promise and Deny Flight in Bosnia; and the final withdrawal of U.S. forces from Somalia.

Following his operational assignments, Tussing was assigned to the Pentagon where he served as Marine Corps Analyst to the Secretary of the Navy in the Office of Program Appraisal. While there, he participated in the Secretary of the Navy's focus group for the Commission on Roles and Missions of the Armed Forces, and served as a consultant on the Defense Science Board on "Tactics and Techniques for the 21st Century." Professor Tussing was subsequently selected for a Brookings Legislative Fellowship, through which he served on the staff of the Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee's Personnel Subcommittee. Following the fellowship, he assumed duties as Deputy Legislative Assistant to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Professor Tussing joined the Center for Strategic Leadership of the U.S. Army War College in October of 1999. His focus areas include Homeland Defense, Homeland Security, Terrorism, and Civil-Military Relations. Since the spring of 2001 he has led and served in multiple forums and studies focused on homeland defense, homeland security, and military support to civil authorities. He has served on three Defense Science Boards: DoD's Roles and Missions in Homeland Security (2003), DoD's Role in Critical Infrastructure Protection (2004), and Critical Infrastructure Protection (2005). He has hosted, organized and facilitated numerous symposiums and workshops dedicated to domestic security, including the United States Army War College's Consequence Management Symposium (Aug 2001); In Support of the Common Defense: Examining Critical Infrastructure Protection in the Public and Private Sector (with George Washington University's Homeland Security Policy Institute-Aug 2004 ); Responding to the Unthinkable: The Role of the Army's Reserve Component in Responding to CBRNE Attack in the Homeland (Sep 2004); Reinforcing the First Line of Defense: The Role of the National Guard in Critical Infrastructure Protection (Aug 2005); Leveraging the Reserves: Improving the Military's Domestic Crisis Response(July 2006); Achieving Unity of Effort in Responding to Crises (Jul 2007), and Reexamining the Role of the National Guard and the Service Reserves in Support of Civil Authorities (May 2008). In 2006 he initiated the formation of the Consortium for Homeland Defense and Security in America, partnering the Army War College with George Washington University's Homeland Security Policy Institute, the Center for Strategic and International Studies, and the Heritage Foundation, and providing for an annual forum dedicated to addressing the challenges and complexities of domestic defense in the modern era. Prof Tussing has served on many formal and informal advisory groups in support of the United States Northern Command, the Department of Homeland Security and the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Homeland Defense and Americas' Security Affairs. He is a senior fellow of George Washington University's Homeland Security Policy Institute; a member of the Board of Experts for UC-Irvines' Center for Unconventional Security Affairs; on the steering committee of the Homeland Security/Defense Education Consortium Association; and a senior fellow of Long Island University's Homeland Security Management Institute. In December 2008 he accepted an appointment to the Department of Homeland Security's Homeland Security Advisory Council, wherein he will serve to advise in the development and execution of the Department's Congressionally-mandated Quadrennial Homeland Security Review.


In summary, the US needs to partner with Mexico for "security" (NAU/SPP/NAFTA talking point) and civilian gun ownership in America is causing Mexico's violence.

This guy peddles the same bull sh*t as what's in this thread:
