The majority of the corruption in the United States—from warrantless surveillance to endless wars, to unregulated spending—can be tied back to a number of government agencies that operate with no oversight, and face no accountability. One of the most important factors that is often ignored is where this influence begins, and how these agencies find their recruits.
In many cases, it starts with colleges and universities that receive funding from the agencies. George Mason University was recently chosen to receive $3.85 million a year, for the next 10 years, from the Department of Homeland Security. The purpose is to create “a new Center of Excellence in Criminal Investigations and Network Analysis.”by
