Well, this should make everyone feel all warm and fuzzy. If after having to put up with all of the added security as well as the TSA, maybe they should rethink they're drink. Seems like an awfull waste of money for a 26% success rate. How many of uis would get to keep our jobs with those kind of numbers?

It sounds like the crisis crash team is out in full force.

DHS lady sticks her foot in her mouth so now we are going to get all kinds of graphs and numbers to prove that everything is fine.

Someone asks a question, oh you must not have gotten our report, here you go.

Politics at its best, covering its own ass, plus totally deflecting any and all truth.


edit to add this from article-

The “major violations” that DHS believes 74 percent of perpetrators will get away with when entering the U.S. by air in 2010, according to a 3,493-page document the department presented to Congress to justify its annual budget, involve “serious criminal activity, including possession of narcotics, smuggling of prohibited products, human smuggling, weapons possession, fraudulent U.S. documents, and other offenses serious enough to result in arrest.”

NOTICE THE PART-TO JUSTIFY ITS ANNUAL BUDGET! 3,493 frelling pages. I guess they were thorough, probably spent 2.2 billion on the report!

Makes ya wonder. How long does it take to write a document that long, and who edits it to go "eh, that should be enough".
