    From Judicial Watch, interesting that this Dept was intended to be a panacea for all of our security travails.. looks like it is turning into another bloated bureaucracy, whose mission will soon become perpetuating itself as most bureaucracies are. This is a very scary revelation on the eve of 9-11.

    The massive federal agency created to protect the nation from another terrorist attack is poorly managed and has failed to adequately protect the U.S. border as well as remove dangerous criminal aliens from the country.

    On the fourth anniversary of the Department of Homeland Security, the blanket agency in charge of preventing another terrorist attack, a lengthy Congressional investigative report details serious shortcomings that could easily leave the nation vulnerable to Islamic terrorists.

    The 320-page ‚ÄúProgress Report‚ÄĚ says the agency lacks a comprehensive strategy and integrated management system that limits its ability to carry out its responsibilities‚ÄĒsuch as reduce vulnerabilities and minimize damages from attacks--effectively.

    Less than half of the department’s performance goals were met and many of the 180,000-member agency’s problems involved illegal immigration. Among the agency’s failures in this area is identifying border spots where people enter the country illegally, establishing an effective strategy to prevent human smuggling and removing illegal aliens with criminal records.

    Just last month Homeland Security‚Äôs Inspector General revealed that a power struggle between the two sub agencies‚ÄĒthe Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)‚ÄĒcharged with intercepting terrorists in the U.S. has led to an appalling lack of cooperation that has left the country vulnerable to another deadly attack.

    Cases and leads involving terrorist activities in the United States have actually been dropped because the FBI and ICE refuse to team up. Other domestic terrorism investigations have experienced major delays because the agencies won’t cooperate with ea

    I have always believed that anytime OBL seriously wanted to strike us he could. Homeland security is a joke unless your some inept groups like the ones in Miami, or New Jersey I.E they didn't even have money to buy weapons but they talked alot.
    Theres to much unprotected boarder north and South along with large ports that could be targeted.

    That article scares me in that the FBI does not talk with ICE, wasn't the mantra after 9-11 the FBI did not speak to the CIA.. on the eve of the 6th anniversary, someone needs to make it change.

    They're doing what the liberal sore losing democrats want them to do "Not Offending Anybody"

    Liberals came out of the woodwork defending the muslims that were Praying on the plane why should they "get tough" if they do they will be crucified.

    If a bunch of Muslims were on their knees praying before they were about to board your plane would you get on that plane?

    Just mention the word "wiretap" and watch what happens on the front page of the NY Times and in Harry Weasle Reids office.

    Liberals only want security AFTER the bomb goes off.

    Can you just imagine what the democrats would have done if one week after Bush took office he ordered all airports to start looking in Muslim Sneakers :singing:
