Currently, DoD’s command and control structure at the strategic level rests with

the CINCs. Only a CINC has the command responsibility, organic staff, and fundamental

ability to integrate all aspects of WMD defense into a comprehensive strategy at the

strategic level. To adequately address terrorism and the WMD threat to America, which

is President Bush’s stated highest priority, at the DoD strategic level one must turn to a

CINC specifically charged with that mission. Therefore, one could conclude that a

homeland security (or homeland defense) CINC is required. This is perhaps one possible

solution to the problem.

How might it look? What other functions might it entail? Those are questions

better suited to further detailed review and analysis. However, one might envision a

solution containing some or all of the following mission areas and their potential

subcomponents within a comprehensive CINC Homeland Security:
