DHS IG says bureaucracy unable to fight terrorism. So, how long till he gets fired?
I wonder how long before this IG joins Walpin in the unemployment line.
In the aftermath of the EunuchBomber’s botched attack, Janet Napolitano assured Americans 48 hours later that “the system worked”. When the entire nation scoffed at that assertion, the DHS Secretary amended her remarks to assert that she just meant her system worked — even though that had nothing to do with the conversation at hand with CNN’s Candi Crowley or with the concerns of Americans. Now, the Inspector General of DHS says that Napolitano is as wrong as she can be about her amended assertion, and that DHS is failing miserably at counterrorism:
The Homeland Security Department’s National Operations Center (NOC) is “unable” to do its job of ensuring coordination among the 22 federal agencies that make up the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and focuses too much on disaster management rather than terrorism prevention, according to its own inspector general.
The National Operations Center, in fact, functions largely in name only, and current operations apparently have diminished its ability to respond to terrorist threats.
These assessments are presented in a redacted report from the DHS Office of Inspector General released in November and entitled “Information Sharing at the National Operations Center.”
