News from the federal lean mean economic machine:
The federal government has spent more than $4.5 billion on equipment to monitor the nation's ports, borders, airports, mail, and air, but most of it will be scrapped because it is ineffective or unreliable, according to a published report.In other words, they just don't work.
Evidently, Homeland Security is now going to "listen to the people and respond wisely and sensibly."
Unfortunately, this is a four and a half billion dollar lesson.
