Letter to the editor
The entire concept of another "organization" to attempt to deal with our
national security seems rather "government-like": add a bit more overhead

As the greatest nation, we have to make something happen with what has
already been started rather than begin another bureaucratic regime that
can be taken apart or not supported by the Democrats, because it was
formed by a Republican president.
Make use of the momentum and support that has been started and is a
part of the InfraGard program (www.infragard.net).
It will be tough to get the private sector to chase another initiative when
the last one didn't get full support.
