Homeland Security Presidential Directives

towards the end of Janet Napolitano speech at the CFR this week. She mentions that Obama used a Presidential Directive (HSPD 5) to declare the secretary of Homeland Security as the principal federal official, in charge of The Swine Flu outbreak in the spring.

heres’ a list of the Homeland Security Presidential Directives

Number 5 is the one that makes DHS the command center in the midst of national emergency.

It’s sort of a overwhelming list of topics. Many of them concern civil liberty issues, which is what makes most citizen uncomfortable with the amount of power or information that governments have.
