Council on Foreign Relations - Homeland Security
The concern that the Council on Foreign Relations had for homeland security pre-dated the events of September 11, 2001. For example, on January 1, 2000, the Council received a grant award of $123,503 from the conservative Smith Richardson Foundation to fund research by the Council's Stephen E. Flynn. According to MediaTransparency.Org, the money was given under the understanding that:
"Stephen Flynn will research and write a book on how to balance the growing pressures for economic globalization with the need to police and protect U.S. borders against national security threats."
