For those intersted in the enterprise of homeland security and its operations, my Heritage colleague David Inserra has just published a lenghty, comprehensive review of DHS in which he argues for a fundamental reset of priorities. You may not agree with all of his recommendations, but the depth of analysis is relatively unique in the think tank world these days. Heres' the executive summary opening:

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) needs substantial reform and improvement in order to fulfill its important roles in the areas of security, emergency preparedness and response, and enforcement of immigration laws. This will require changes in nearly every part of DHS, as well as a better prioritization of resources within each of the components and between the components. This executive summary provides key policy recommendations and corresponding budgetary changes for Congress to consider as it moves through the budgetary process.
