Fusion Centers,  Have you heard of them? No-o-o not a new type of food cart or a place to blend teas. But Oregon does have 2 of them. They are Secret Surveillance Centers started by the Department of Homeland Security, "Fusing" intelligence gathered by local state and federal law enforcement and then helping to coordinate response. Paired with local Joint Terrorism Task Forces, they try to keep their locations & their influence hidden but their impact is huge. KBOO host and investigative reporter, Linda Olson-Osterlund, reports on the newest fusion center in Oregon.  Its location and its actions.
