Secretary Chertoff Announces New Members of the Homeland Security Advisory Council

For Immediate Release
Contact: DHS Press Office, 202-282-8010
January 10, 2006

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Michael Chertoff announced today the appointment of Elliott Broidy, Tom Foley and John Magaw to serve on his Homeland Security Advisory Council.

The Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC), as established by the Homeland Security Act of 2002, is the Secretary’s primary council and is comprised of experts from state and local governments, first responder communities, academia and the private sector. Members of the Council provide advice and recommendations to Secretary Chertoff on homeland security issues.

“Each of these individuals brings a vast amount of experience and expertise from public service and the private sector to the Homeland Security Advisory Council,” said Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff. “I am grateful that these accomplished leaders will provide important counsel and new ideas that contribute to the department’s efforts to make our nation more prepared and secure.”

Elliott Broidy is a commissioner for the Los Angeles City Fire and Police Pension Fund and serves on the governing boards of several large charitable and educational organizations, including the Los Angeles Police Foundation.  He is Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Broidy Capital Management, a private investment company which he founded in 1991 that specializes in investing in private equity and marketable securities.  He is also founder and Chairman of Markstone Capital Partners, an $800 million private equity fund.  

Tom Foley, of Spokane, Wash., and Washington, D.C., is a former member of the U.S. House of Representatives, where he served 15 terms from January 1965 to January 1995. During his time in the House, Foley served as Democratic Whip and Majority Leader. Between 1989 and 1995, he was the 49th Speaker of the House. Following his congressional service, President Clinton appointed Foley as Chairman of the President’s Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board, where he served from 1995 to 1997. Later, he served as U.S. Ambassador to Japan until 2001. Foley is currently a partner with the law firm of Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld, LLP. He also serves as a member of the Defense Policy Board with the Department of Defense and is the Chairman of the North American Trilateral Commission.

John Magaw, of Annapolis, Md., served as Undersecretary for Security at the Department of Transportation and was responsible for implementing the Aviation and Transportation Security Act of 2001, which augmented transportation security nationwide in air, land, water and rail modes.  He has a distinguished career in security and law enforcement, having served as: Director of the U.S. Secret Service; Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, where he coordinated and directed policy and organization changes in the aftermath of the Waco, Texas, tragedy; Senior Advisor to the Director of FEMA for terrorism preparedness; Acting Director and Acting Deputy Director of FEMA; and Acting Executive Director of the Office of National Preparedness.

WTF? Tom Foley and John Magaw join Norman Mineta ( now longest serving Sec'y of commerce) as continuation of GWB's outreach program.

Even as this news hits the screen;
"The Mexican military has little regard for the border as troops have entered the United States 216 times over nine years, according to a Department of Homeland Security document and a map of incursions"

Chertoff ought to resign and on the way out the door should call for Col David Hunt or someone as qualified as him to be appointed Sec of Homeland Security.

Chertoff's ubsuitability for this task is demonstrated bt yet another "committee" of politico's to try to find a balance between appeasement of the illegals and business special interests, while actual "security" enhancement has gone by the wayside.

shame shame shame!

Dem thieving politicos. Foley (Wash) presided over the House banking nd post office scandals when pols were using these to scam even more money from us with unpaid "loans" and re-selling sheets of stamps. and Magaw should be serving time for his part in the Waco massacre.

What's really needed is the Dead Muslim Terrorists Advisory Council.

Never mind the thieves, what on earth is a supposedly republican "conservative" doing, putting a mass murderer on the payroll?

Who is he planning to murder?

The evidence does not lead a rational man to think it will be foreign invaders. Magaw's specialty is burning Americans alive in their homes.

Are they planning to force their Socialist North American Community through by force?

Thanks for the info on the latter two, but I can't for the life of me figure out what qualifies a wealthy manicured gadabout like Broidy for an advisory position on sump-pumps, let alone Homeland Security. Another "Brownie" Friend-Of-George?

For that matter, wouldn't Norman Mineta better serve his country by being reassigned to testing airline doors at 20,000 feet?

Col Hunt should definetly be in line for one of these positions. He seems like he would be a great fit.

Norman Mineta is the secretary of transportation.

Since his department has been stripped bare and most of hs decisions have been over ruled, he is in essence, a human paper weight.

Magaw is a lying swine who should be permanently barred from public service. Who is responsible for this fiasco?

Of course, but I was really hoping that the answer was someone else. Magaw really is dangerous, even more so than Janet Reno, IMHO.

My, what an impressive list of new appointees. Really takes my breath away.

They ought to fit right in with the existing collection of useless DHS bureaucrats.

Lets do nothing some more...

I am no longer stunned at the duplicity of the "compassionate conservative" crowd, with one hand promising a free and secure America and the other appointing Magaw to oversee it. Ted Bundy in charge of security at the sorority house, Teddy Kennedy the drivers' ed instructor, Helen Thomas in charge of journalistic ethics, none of them could do the damage appointing this guy could.

Actually considering what is flowing across our southern border, the opportunities for a thief such as Foley must make his eyes light up.
