Homeland Security a Flop

Has an unhealthy obsession with Quakers caused this non unionized bureaucracy to fail to do the most basic tasks imaginable?

Responding, Homeland Security spokesman Russ Knocke said the department is prioritizing resources and programs based on "today's greatest threats."


Quakers, journalists, poverty groups, animal lovers, environmentalists, liberals and Jews.

In all fairness, the head of DHS only gets about a dollar a head a year for everybody who has to mind him, but it has taken three years to break 33 major promises to the American people so far.

Presumably they will try to find time to

  • Compile a single, comprehensive list prioritizing protections for the nation's most critical and potentially vulnerable buildings, transportation systems and other infrastructure.
  • _Install monitors at borders and every international seaport and airport to screen for radiation material entering the country.
  • _Install surveillance cameras at all high-risk chemical plants.
  • _Create one effective network to share quickly security-related intelligence and alerts with state, local and private industry officials.
  • _Track international visitors through a computerized system that takes their fingerprints and photographs as they enter and exit the country


Sometime after they have dealt with the Quakers, journalists, poverty groups, animal lovers, environmentalists, liberals and Jews.
