“The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government - lest it come to dominate our lives and interests.”
― Patrick Henry
President Obama has named Jeh Charles Johnson as the new Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
Obama told the audience at the Rose Garden that Johnson has “been there in the Situation Room, at the table in moments of decision.”
The president said: “Jeh also knows that meeting these threats demands cooperation and coordination across our government. He’s been there in the Situation Room at the table in moments of decision, working with leaders from a host of agencies to make sure everyone is rowing in the same direction. And he’s respected across our government as a team player, somebody who knows how to get folks who don’t always agree to work towards a common goal.”
Because the “task” of counterterrorism is so great, Obama chose Johnson to continue Janet Napolitano’s “important work”.
With Johnson designing the legal framework for the Obama administrations various policies that justify criminal actions, Obama promised more transparency within his “national security team”.
As a graduate from Columbia Law School (CLS), Johnson has focused his legal career at American civil and criminal trials.
