There was a major shift in my career in 2002 from United States Navy to the United States Federal Government. I have realized that working for the Federal Government, although has its advantages, also has its drawbacks. The benefits are great, and once you have passed your probationary period it is almost impossible to get fired. The teamwork that I had grown to love in the Navy took a backseat to workplace politics in the Federal Government.
HELLO GUYS!!! I have something veryyyyyyyy important to tell you! After all of my stressing about FAFSA ( Free Application Federal Student Aid) , Colleges, and Transportation, I decided to further my education at Rowan University. It took me a long time to make this decision because this wasn’t my first choice! My first choice/ dream school was LIU Brooklyn ( Long Island University) in Brooklyn, New York. I was recently accepted there and planned on attending there, but their out-of-state tuition was extremely high! Their tuition was $33,000 a year and poor black man like myself, cannot afford it. I really loved LIU because it's a great school, beautiful campus, and most of all, it's in New York. I had my whole planned before it even started,
In her 1999 book Flawed By Design, Stanford academic Amy Zegart examines the three main American national security agencies: the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS), and the National Security Council (NSC). She covers the history of each of the agencies from creation to the 1990s. While going through each of their histories, she makes a point to break down their histories into their creations and evolutions. This breakdown allows Zegart to effectively and concisely support her conclusion that the agencies are flawed by design. Furthermore, her conclusions are relevant to the U.S. military today. Any competent military professional should learn lessons from Zegart as the lessons she offers have keen importance
My presidential run for office would be based off being truthful. I would tell the United States how the government has been taking money from them and spending it irresponsibly. I want to fix the United States because they fail to use money effectually. There needs to be someone that steps in and fixes the problem. When the people of the U.S. votes me into office that will be my task.
The 1776 united States of America Declaration of Independence contain the words that succinctly describe our national objective, strategy, and message, “We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.” In today’s United States of America, the world acknowledges American’s as the preeminent owner of individual freedoms, holding and promoting these three basic principles for some 240 years. During these years, the U.S. has employed the use of intelligence to shape its objectives and strategies, and then in times of war used the same intelligence to shape strategic messages against foreign powers. However, as hostilities decline and give way to the restoration of relative peace, the use of intelligence for strategic messages against foreign powers ceases. Under these circumstances, the void created by secession of U.S. messages, provides a communication opportunity to foreign powers for transmission of anti-U.S. messages. Attempts have been made to reinstate the offices that during war countered these anti-U.S. messages to a comprehensive reorganization of the U.S Government intelligence community. This paper does not support creation of a new agency or department to utilize existing strategic intelligence.
foreign policy, strategic goals, emerging security concerns, and regional affairs. Earning this graduate degree will further develop my understanding in these critical areas and, most importantly, teach me the skills to stay ahead in the rapidly changing international relations and security environment. Furthermore, I want to enhance the effectiveness of the Army in its many existing partnerships with nations around the world and help shape new ones as my career progresses. It only took a few times out in the villages of Afghanistan to realize that without Afghanistan's Government and their Security Forces as the face of coalition initiatives, the people would never support any of those initiatives. After this lesson in counterinsurgency, I then learned the importance of the alliances we hold with other nations from my most recent assignment to Japan. With our military resources spread across the globe and security challenges from countries like China and North Korea it is evident how crucial our allies and partners like Japan, South Korea, Australia and the South East Asian Nations are to help deter aggression and promote regional stability. I strongly believe our international partnerships are one of, if not, the most critical component of international security and will only continue to increase in importance with the growing number of threats we face. Again, it is because of this I desire a professional academic background in all the complexities of international security and I believe the international security program has all the right components to send me back to the Army a leader in this
Introduction National security and the other intelligence agencies have played a major role in today’s society in regards to protecting our country. In this analytic paper I will discuss and reflect on the personal skills, abilities, and benefits of the five different intelligence community agencies that operate under their own instruction and training, but serves as the same purpose of defending the United States of America. The five different intelligence agencies are the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Navy Intelligence, Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).
As a proud and patriotic American, I resolve to do everything within my power to devote my time, conviction, and security expertise to the mission of bringing down the terrorists that are threatening not only our freedom, but also the freedom of others around the World. For almost 20 years,
During the Cold War, the C.I.A became the flag bearer for American ideals, exporting American values across the globe through clandestine operations in the likes of Cuba, Vietnam and Nicaragua. These actions undertaken by the C.I.A, are the skeletons in the agency’s closet. They reflect an attitude, a vision,
Hey guys my names Sean Smith I'm from Long Island and I'm planning on Majoring in Communications. I'm super into art; drawing and painting and all that jazz (Not actually into jazz but if you are that's cool) I love hanging out with friends watching Netflix and having a good
My childhood was anything but ordinary; a typical Saturday afternoon in the would consist of me watching a documentary on the origins of the universe, C-SPAN, or learning a new programming language. I wasn’t a fan of baseball, football, or most other sports for that matter, I just really liked learning. I have always possessed a quiet sense of internal patriotism and watching the President deliver the State of the Union to me was like the Super Bowl. However, it wasn’t until after some soul searching in the ninth grade that I know I wanted a career within the United States Intelligence Community. Thomas Jefferson, in Congress wrote on July 4, 1776 “That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed”. This single quote (that I hold close to my heart), a devastating event on a Tuesday morning in September 2001, a strong sense of civic duty, and ensuring the continuity of the American Dream is why I want to contribute to the silent story of Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).
Duties included the following: In the student government I was able to oversee the wealth of the student body, served as a liaison between the students, and the school administration to address student needs and safety, created the student activities and organizations budget, and facilitate activities to incorporate the student body into community service. In my position as Presidential Ambassador I was able to address the incoming freshman on the information needed to be successful at the school, as well as provide Assistance to the school lifelong learning program, which provided the local senior citizens community with weekly events. Lastly as a summer orientation leader I aided incoming student to acquire the necessary tools to be successful
The CIA has a history that is shrouded in mystery. The Agency’s history is rich with patriotic acts that rival the likes of the GRU (Russian Intelligence), MI6 (British Intelligence), and Mossad (Israeli Intelligence). These agencies are some of the top Intelligence Agencies in the world, yet the CIA is constantly topping the list by being the
State wise, American citizens have rarely been concerned with foreign affairs of its own government. The number one dissatisfaction is the seemingly never-ending wars within the regions of the Middle East that have begun since the Bush administration. Yet, because of the heightened sense of paranoia still lingering from 9/11, citizens show a definite concern for how efficiently the intelligence community of the United States government works. The fusing of
I majored in finance for both my bachelor and master degree. I am not so interest in my major, but I think it will be easier for me to find a job with a finance degree. The main reason for me to come to Tulane is that Tulane
