Washington notables broke ground on the future home of the Department of Homeland Security on Wednesday, symbolically starting construction on the biggest federal building project in the Washington area since the Pentagon 68 years ago.
The project will bring together more than 15,000 employees now scattered in 35 offices in the region, placing them on a 176-acre campus strewn with historic buildings in a long-neglected corner of Washington, five miles from the Capitol building.
Department leaders hope the $3.4 billion consolidation will help the department fulfill its core mission -- protecting the homeland -- in ways big and small.
"It will help us hold meetings," Secretary Janet Napolitano said. "It will help us build that culture of 'One DHS.'"
Great post warrenb, the real trick for People to realize is the building will not cost 3.4 billion dollars

I think it's time that we focus more on the DHS.
It's one of the largest departments with over 200,000 employees, and it incorporated 22 government agencies when it came into action.
Begin to wonder how much money and problems it causes for all of these people to meet and get together, to work together?
A complex for them is not asking too much.

This is another example of deception, and subversion. There is no doubt of black ops existing, but there is mucho talk about the DUMBs, and other installations like the space station being built up; all for undisclosed reasons.
