GENERAL TO BE PUT IN CHARGE OF DOMESTIC SECURITY

Jason Ditz, Anti War - President Obama announced that he will be combining the White House staffs dealing with international and homeland security, claiming that the move would "make Americans safer." The president will establish a "global engagement directorate" and a "National Security staff" that will deal with all policymaking related to "international, transnational, and homeland security matters." National Security Adviser James Jones will head the staff.

Jones, a former Marine commandant, praised the move, saying that "terror around the world doesn't recognize borders." President Obama said the move "will end the artificial divide between White House staff who have been dealing with national security and homeland security issues."
