DHS is CIA
The CIA was set up, in part, and evolved into, in part, a way to funnel information, regardless of the party in charge, to the Democrats.
DHS is the same, in reverse. Chertoff is bragging that the #2 and #3 slots in most areas are career civil servants. It is too easy to imagine that most of these are loyal Bushies. There is no doubt that a large number of previous Bush appointments have been far more loyal to him than to the United States of America.
