U.S. homeland security budget gets small budget boost

Its 2012 budget proposal requests $43.8 billion for homeland security across the entire federal government, excluding the Defense Department, up $800 million from 2011.

The request for the increase comes as militant groups like the al Qaeda wing based in Yemen have increased their efforts to strike the United States, including plots to blow up bombs on airplanes or in major city centers.

Already TSA has deployed nearly 500 of the scanners at 78 airports, about half made by L-3 Communications Holdings Inc (LLL.N), and officials hope to increase that number in the coming months. Further, DHS has sought to increase security screening for cargo entering the United States.

The budget also includes additional funds, about $3 billion, to better protect against a chemical, biological, nuclear or radiological attack as well as critical infrastructure like power grids.

And the hits keep coming.....all of this non-sense about eminent, or possible attacks, is just pure hog-wash. Just another wasteful spending of ear marks that our beloved messiah claimed he would eradicate. Lunacy I tell ya~
